Avalanche Company: The 213 Things Skippy is No Longer Allowed to Do in the U.S. Army

This is seriously the funniest thing I've ever read. I about died laughing reading it, I was laughing so much my sister finally started yelling at me from across the house to shut up. The list is so long, I'm only going to put part of it here, so I strongly suggest you click the link and go read the rest of it.


The 213 Things Skippy is No Longer Allowed to Do in the U.S. Army
SGT Shawn Stanford
Once upon a time, there was a SPC Schwarz stationed with the Army in the Balkans. SPC Schwarz was either very clever or very bored; but probably both, since he managed to attempt or be warned about 213 things he wasn't allowed to do. He collected those things into a hillarious list and posted them to the web. The site hadn't been updated in a couple of years and has since gone away; but the list is classic, so I saved it. A couple favorites: 2. My proper military title is 'Specialist Schwarz' not 'Princess Anastasia'. and 191. Our Humvees cannot be assembled into a giant battle-robot.

1. Not allowed to watch Southpark when I'm supposed to be working.

2. My proper military title is 'Specialist Schwarz' not 'Princess Anastasia'.

20. Must not taunt the French any more.

23. Must never ask anyone who outranks me if they've been smoking crack.
