Gives a whole new meaning to 'Jolly Rodger'
So that's how the flag got it's name!
Avast there and unfurl the Twat-O-Tron ye scurvy landlubbers of Middle England, lest Portsmouth Historic Dockyard make barrel boys of ye all, damn their eyes: Poster for Portsmouth Historic Dockyard Yes indeed, me buckaroos, that's how Portsmouth punts Blighty's nautical heritage, as a suitably shaken Igor Z can attest. Mr Z …
So that's how the flag got it's name!
..as the young bloke probably said
Let’s get all the obligatory jokes out of the way early:
Up the poopdeck
Give him a good flogging
Anything involving the word 'semen'
'You're not the first mate'
I'm sorry but even a humorous article should have correct spelling, please correct this.
"..a touch o' the cat.."
This is getting dangerously close to extreme porn so I have to stop reading here and clear my cache.
More in sorrow than in anger.....etc, etc
Sorry, no pussy involved.
You forgot Roger the cabin boy.
You've missed the obligatory
Roger the Cabin Boy
Also, how about,
Polish the Cannon
Slide upon my Sword
You forgot "Porthole surprise".
..will be all too familiar with these sort of shenanigans, I refer of course to "Up the ****!" section!
Is because the standard of the young female population is so low.
Having spent a few years gracing the south coast sh*thole with my presence I can attest to the truly shocking quality of the female population.
Generally ugly, a loud gibbon-like eloquence and social structure with a propensity for bad language and the drinking of cheap alcohol. Too many small tight tops to proudly show off the flabby results of too much shallow end of the gene pool breeding and eating of junk food to the uneducated chav like male population. It goes without saying that this model for a life is handed down from the elders who generally believe that shouting "Pom-peeeeeeeey" and having those very letters self tatooed onto ones body is the way to bag a quality partner.
There is also the interesting fashion style called the "Fareham facelift" - this involves the female tying the hair back so tightly it pulls all of the wrinkles out of the face to hide the fat. These pituary retards must think this makes them more attractive, but upon reflection... I beg to differ.
Paris obviously. She may be a bit wayward but she'd light up the back streets of Stamshaw or Fratton like an angel... until the girls of Portsmouth, with their unevolved frontal lobes beat her up of out of jealousy of course.
can we have a playmobile recreation of this scene (evidently from bareback seamen 3)
mine's the one with easy release buttons.
Is a lick of the cat, shurely
... Perhaps I don't have this inane fear of "omg, young man being buggered in picture"...
Does that mean that this, since it does not come with age warnings, could be considered porn?
Bad Reg, bad, bad, bad!
coming up from the rear.
Avast (one) there!
..that historic naval life was not like this at all. Sanitised history is CORRECT history.
Pirates killed raped and pillaged, but they wstill appear in kidds books as just lovable characters. We need to harden our kids. SHOW THEM THE UNDERBELLY!
Should it be a "a taste of the captain's daughter"?
Mine's the cape & tricorn...
Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy and the lash. Sir Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
I think you mean:
Aaaaaaahrrrrr Aaaaaaahrrrrr Aaaaaaaaaaahrrrrr. Me laddy. The last one up the old sea dog gets a lick of the cat'!
He may have been only a third-rate sailor, but he made a first-rate second course.
The one with a stick that comes back, a beard and bottles of Fine Wine in the pocket.
Kiss me Hardy.
Yes! Excellent suggestion for where this ad should be placed!
"Right, next we use the ram rod and shove the load in hard"
Is it a scene from 'Brokeback Midshipman'?
Is it improper use of the term 'yard arm'?
Is this really what's meant by 'naval exercises'?
and can assure you this picture is correct off a Friday night down the docks.
AC for so many reasons.
I am glad to hear that your readership disapproves of the poster as strongly as I.
As a naval officer I abhor the implication that the Royal Navy is a haven for buggery. It is well known that we now have the problem relatively under control, and that it is the RAF who now suffer the largest casualties in this area. And what do you think the Argylls shagged in Aden. Arabs?
Captain B.J. Smethwick, up the old sea dog, with a lick o' the cat.
written on the wall of my law school bogs :
"She was only an admiral's daughter but her room was full of discharged semen."
Any of you landlubbers know what a "fid" is?
Imagine a truncheon 6 inches long.
Affectionately known on board as a "ship's boy's starter".
Arrrrrr! Bring me another cabin boy! This'un be burst...
"....so I have to stop reading here and clear my cache"
Call it what you want but it'll make you go blind.
In the navy yes, you can sail the seven seas
Off-topic, and a tad too coherent methinks to make Rant of the Week, but bless anyway.
Variation on the theme;
"She was only an Admiral's daughter, but every night her navel base was full of discharged semen."
The Sou'wester, ta.
Your average innocent kiddie (anyone seen one lately? Anyone?) wouldn't see anything odd in that picture at all. You're only going to look at it a bit sideways if that sort o' thing is on your mind already.
Which says a lot for the mentality of your average Daily Mail reader...
There'll be an angry mob along any minute I'd have thought. I'll just go and fetch my "Think of the children" placard...
Come on boys, this is what the GOP has turned into over the past decade, and the Repugs don't seem to have a problem with it, so why should should Her Majesty's Navy?) . There's a couple of recreated 19th century riverboats at the docks in St. Paul where Larry Craig can recreate these scenes with his butt buddies, with Dick (no snickering!) Cheney watches for the coast to be clear
Paris because she'd be safe with this crowd while the cabin boy's in danger
I've tried surfing in a sandbox, to help soak it up, but that causes more problems than it solves. (Looks for the Ibuleve painkilling gel........)
...loud gibbon-like eloquence
Brilliant! Love the moniker, too!
The cabin boy, the cabin boy,
That dirty little nipper...
He packed his ass
With shards of glass
and circumcised the Skipper!
Apologies. But it's a way of purging the mental scars.
Off topic again though... when the real Luther Blisset used to play for Bournemouth he used to live in Corfe Mullen. His house was called "Far Corfe".
Work that one out for yourselves.
Oh what the hell... Paris again as she likes dimwits hung like horses.
that the blonde needs his roots doing. Were there a lot of peroxide blondes in the navy back then?
You sure you're not from Colorado, mate?
as a rear admiral...
The poor guy is struggling with the cannon while the other one in the funny hat just totally ignores him.
... or have I missed something
obviously its a scumhampton fan as its in winchester were alot of em live avin a laugh doing it.
Actually, it looks like the middie is pulling it for him.
Paris, 'cuz she does more than that.
The seamen action was funny enough, but oh my, right below it I get the "Don't mess with the Moderatrix" ad as well!!!
Hmmm , an interesting way for the young ladette to stroke a caronade with the port all tightly buttoned up tighter then a kiwi sheeps whatever !
I have to whole heartedly disagree with Aristotles slow and dimwitted horse, I have been drinking in Portsmouth many times and there are some fantastic looking women.
( I didn't mean that) Is this a poster of the modern navy?
I think they're getting too much from the pubic purse.
That is all I am going to say!
"Ha. -Aarh! You have a woman's purse, My Lord! I'll wager that purse has never been used as a rowing-boat. I'll wager it's never had sixteen shipwrecked mariners tossing in it!"
The picture.......having long ago dated an RN Admiral's daughter I can attest to the fact that anyone in relation to the Royal Navy ALWAYS does it "Navy style on the Poop Deck". And there's always plenty of "seamen" ;)
To Aristoles.....clearly you have been there and now the place well. I grew up in Havant, (monumental shit hole that it is which makes me so glad I live in Surrey now.) and yes the "females" of the area are generally either stick thin anorexic chav twigs with the "Fareham facelift", or fat gobby fakkiiiiin caaaawwsss with the same hair do, and half a dozen kids by different fathers. There are a few, and I stress few exceptions. Mostly the minority of the population that aren't chav's.
Although saying that there are a number of the female chavs that if you scrapped off the cheap plastered on makeup, scrubbed off the cheap tarty perfume that they seem to bath in, unplastered their hair and got them out of the slapper clothes, they would actually pass as quite attractive young women. Sadly they won't. Perhaps someone would like to perform a massed "My Fair Lady" on Pompey ??
Won't someone think of the children - Aah the Paulsgrove Paedophile riots. A thoroughly entertaining event to everyone local when contacted by people from other area's of the country commenting in shock at the "cars on fire, people being dragged from their homes and beaten up by mistake" and being advised that Paulsgrove is always like that. (Ok so there were 2 cars on fire in comparison to the normal 1 car on fire.) The best part is when I learned that the women in charge of the protesters was arrested right after giving an interview to the BBC for child neglect. She's left her 2 year old at home alone and it had gotten out of the house and was found running in the middle of the street naked. (A thoroughly dangerous thing to do because of all the boy racers round there.) People I know at Portsmouth City Council advised me that this particular woman was not fit to lead such a protest as she had a rap sheet with Social Services for child neglect and child abuse as long as your arm, and had had her children taken away from her several times. Which of course by Paulsgrove standards makes her a model mother lol
I went back to Pompey over the weekend and ended up having to email a friend when I got home to check and see if Pompey really was as run down and crap looking as I saw it, or if I was comparing it to a rose tinted memory of Pompey after living in lovely clean Surrey for the last 8 years.
Paris as she's probably done it Navy style and loves Seamen ;)
Winston Churchill forgot to mention the illegal drugs...
