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:

    Got to love the last line.
     
  2. Dangerous Salads Act anyone?
     
  3. Salds can kill so, I will stick to pie and chips, far healthier!
     
  4. I thought for a moment she may have been shaking the lettuce a bit too vigorously.
     

  5. I think that 'Salads' is too loose a term.

    Dangerous Lettuce Act may well be the way forward.

    IMHO natch.

    Wait for the next Home Office initiate: Lettuce licenses - to be based on the dangerous vegetables act.

    Any qualified lettuce inspectors out there :thumright:
     
  7. Leaf the jokes alone on this one.
     
  8. The lettuce should never have been destroyed!

    I knew it, and its family, and I can tell you that it had an incredibly rough time. It was abandoned at an early age and was brought up in a cabbage patch, where it was systematically abused by itinerant carrots.

    Later it was introduced to the highly-addictive 'tomato feed', a mind-altering substance that induces paranoia and heightens aggression. It never knew the security of a greengrocer's shelf but instead found itself in a high-security wing of Tesco despite having committed no offence. There it mixed with hardened offenders such as broccoli, Brussels sprouts and spinach. In order to survive it had to become like them or go under.

    It is society that should bear the blame, not the lettuce.
     
  9. I've heard of being buried under with work.....but thats ridiculous! :thumleft:
     
  10. Its a good job they didn't add mint sauce to it, it would have been feckin menthal.
     
  11. Easy on the salad cream.
     
  12. Maybe she was turning over a new leaf and got carried away
     
  13. Bloody tree-hugging(lettuce?) do-gooders.
     
  14. Terrible. Lettuce all hope this doesn't happen again.
     
  15. Thought it was only people on the titanic that got killed by an iceberg
