Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. so, any reasons why we hate the French so much?

    for me it has to be

    1- the horrible rat dogs they take to resturants with them
    2- Parking their lorries across the port when I was desperatley trying to escape their country
    3- deciding to put a refuse site on top of the area that was the battle of Loos
    4- DeGaulle
    5- That camp for asylumn seekers (the name escapes me)
     
  2. So many reasons, so little time.

    The dog sh*t in Paris.
    Not being active members of NATO but wanting to rule anyway.
    Being fukcing useless on combined ops because they must be see as having independet command.
    Pacific nuclear tests long after everyone else had gone underground.
    Sinking the Rainbow Warrier.
    Chirac.
    Having a cr*p Navy.
    Having a cr*p Army except the Legion most of whom are not French.
    Imagine being in the French Airforce? is there anything lower?

    I'm off for a shot of whiskey.
     
  3. Ok, I can agree with near all the others, but not this... good skills by the frogs :D :twisted: :D
     
  4. This should read 'Sinking the Rainbow Warrior and getting caught'

    Their utter arrogance about all things
    Runny carrot or onion flavoured water that they have a cheek to call soup
    All the rest of their shite cooking that they arrogantly think is better than everyone else's
    Bojoulais Nuevau - I wouldn't sour it and put it on my chips
    Their crap, poncy language
    The fact the men all think they are god's gift to women
    Their women don't shave
    Their women stink
    Vanessa Paradis - gap toothed munter
    Arc de Triumph - what f*cking triumph?
    Capitulation and surrender then their utter thanklessness when we saved them from the Krauts. We should have just let Hitler get no with it. ingrates!
    Keeping perfectly good british meet out of their shops against EU orders on the grounds it had BSE when we all knew they were protecting their own interests
    They get more out of the EU than they pay in
    Serge whateverthefuck he was called who did the moany orgasm song in the 60's
    Antoine Decaunes. Cnut!
    Jean Paul Gaultier. Ever bigger queer cnut!
    Eurotrash. Only a frog could think that shite up.

    I could just go on forver......
     
  6. Being so far up their own derrieres that

    1. The EU Capital moves between Brussels and Strasbourg two or three time a year.. because the Frogs want it that way. Unbelievably inefficient.

    2. They dont want English to become the Official language of the EU.

    3. Whenever the workshy fops take Industrial Action, the action they take is to blockade the Tunnel. Next time they do this I want to lob a burning sheep onto the next frog registered vehicle I see. Ideally from a motorway bridge.

    4. Bloody hell just thinking about them has ruined my afternoon.

    The French Navy - all ships convert to u-boats at the drop of a tricolour.

    Don't rate the foreign legion they are truly shoite. Some of them may be hard, but so are the regulars at the Shakespeares Arms. Don't make em good soldiers.

    The only good frenchy warriors are Joan of Arc and Asterix, one was a mad bint who spoke to the trees and the other one needed a magic potion and had a gay dog.

    Oh, and they are both fictional.

    The best thing to come out of france was Vicki Michelle in Allo Allo, and she was really a RADI trained actress from Surbiton.
     
  9. 1. The loss of GMT as the world time standard ti UTC - effectively the cnutting same, but no reference to England (when everyone knows we invented not only the concept of time, but time itself)

    2. The (completely illogical) metric (SI) system - only needed by a race who need their fingers and toes to count on:

    1 metre =The distance travelled by light, in a vacuum, in 1/299792458 seconds

    1 second = the duration of 9192631770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom


    therefore:

    one metre = the distance travelled by light, in a vacuum, during 30.6633189885 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom.


    compare proper units:

    One foot = the length of a man's foot

    Ergo, the metric system and its' creators suck

    Q.E.D.
     
  10. Metric is great - as long as you're not too old to cope.
    French vino is great.
    Some French food is superb.
    The Basque coast is one of the finest places on earth.
    French beer is better than Aussie beer (1664 v Fosters)

    Never said I liked the French tho!
     
  11. I holiday in frog land, Better than blackpool. Wines good, beers ok, shame those clowns live there.

    Oh the roads knock spots out the shit we have
     
  12. French vino was great, now its usually overpriced. Their lager is gassy pop and having done extensive sonsumer research in Sydney I can confirm that the Australians are blessed with lager - even they don't like Fosters. The best chefs in France are often Brits, or trained in Blighty.

    I think that simply the fact that they are French is sufficient for me to dislike them.

    But, since you ask (and in addition to the points already noted by others):

    - cutting the heads off some of the best of their people

    - even more corrupt politicians than ours

    - their manipulation of the CAP
     
  14. Whats the difference between Frenchmen and toast?
    You can make soldiers out of toast.

    How'd they measure the speed of light? The metric system is based on water, but the definitions have been tightened up by the scientific community...

    1 metric tonne = 1 cubic metre of pure water
