Origins of the Cockfest

Twas in August 2011 that the good Baron Castleshort decides to send another legal letter to ARRSE. Sensible men don't do this - it's akin to prodding a hornet's nest. Before long the counter-offensive was under way.

with target indication given shortly thereafter.

The great cockfest was on..

An Innocent Guest Book

Poor little Guest Book, containing but simple enquiries....

The Opening Bombardment

First came a simple ranging shot, then a round dead on target.

The Counter Attack begins (well - sort of...)

A feeble riposte from 'down under', rapidly seen off by a leprechaun

Normal service was resumed as soon as possible.

Another Counter-Attack

Be afraid, be very afraid. The female ninjista Lisa 'Pinknails' Baldwin joins the fray. The head of the female IBA rides to Jimbo's rescue...

Only to be caught in the open by a 'Time on Target' salvo...

Turning Serious for a Moment

Theses pot shots are not aimed at members of the IBA - many of whom are decent and well meaning.

Normal Abuse will be Resumed as Soon as Possible

However did you get the impression James G Shortt is not very popular with the readership of ARRSE?

What brought this outbreak of festive messages on you may ask. Could it be Jimbo send a letter in to ARSSE threatening legal action?

art-29.jpg

Cue a chorus of 'why are we waiting' in the background. (Or should that be 'why are we walting'?)

Chapter 42 - This is all a prank by Jimbo...

In which we learn that (a) Jimbo has put up all these massages as a prank and (b) he really is a fine soldier, especially when on classified ops. 'Call of Duty' really has a lot to answer for.
