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. Moving on from http://www.arrse.co.uk/naafi-bar/198387-what-best-thing-you-have-ever-had-your-mouth-part-2-a.html#post5058159 I just thought of the other end of the scale.

    Not what was the worst thing but what was the thing that didn't live up to expectations?

    For me it must have been a steak I had in the "Cafe de Paris" Geneva.

    Touted as the home of this style of steak in Butter sauce, well it was overwhelmingly mediocre and a sore disappointment.

    I am expecting more arseholes, bellends and lady garden stories but some more originals ones would be good as well.

  6. She's in Widnes Crem. Good luck with that one.
  7. Truffles, super expensive but mediocre at best.
  8. Caviar. People only like it because it's expensive and they don't want to admit it's over-priced salty shite.

  10. and why "pan fried"? What the fuck else is the average housefrau likely to fry them in?

    Alright I know that there are a few on here who would use mess tins for everything but not normal people.

  15. That rifle.

    But the hype didn't start until 15 years after it was withdrawn from service.
