Number 11: Not allowed to join the Communist Party

We're enjoying the last day of our trip to Vegas (which explains the lack of posts this weekend). The purpose of our visit was to see Thom's surrogate brother, Scott, off to Afghanistan, where he'll be serving in the national guard for the next year. (Don't ask me why he's not, you know, serving NATIONALLY.) He pointed me in the direction of a blog his friend has written about all the things you cannot do in the U.S. Military (he's field-tested them just to make sure). Here are a few excerpts:

80. Not allowed to wear a dress to any army functions.

81. May not bring a drag queen to the battalion formal dance.

82. May not form any press gangs.

83. Must not start any SITREP (Situation Report) with “I recently had an experience I just had to write you about….”

84. Must not use military vehicles to “Squish” things.

To see 213 more examples, head over to Skippy's List.

One of my employees at work is in the same unit with Scott and he is actually "Excited" about going. Strange the way each person feels about their circumstance.
