MAN! Reading through this thread has brought back some awesome memories. Thank you for that!

Although I was RA (Regular Army), the only funny one I can think of is the Air Force slogon of "Aim High".....also a good thought during oral sex! :)

I haven't seen anyone mention the "Donkey Dick" yet. Any of you USAF fuel systems guys or crew chiefs feel like explaining that one?

Anj - surely you remember the name for Women Marines?? I never heard one. I've heard "BAM" for Broad Assed Marine.

(I was called that more than once, but I swear I never had a broad ass.)

I knew girls that had the nickname "mattress" cuz they'd been laid more times than the average rack... (sadly, these girls seemed to earn the title)

We also sent a lot of "boots" to look for: 100 yards of flight line, Cans of Beep, blinker fluid, oh and send them to the company office for a Prick E7 that one usually ended in a beating.
On boat we would but the "boots" on Mail Buoy duty

One last one did anybody ever start lines to/for nothing on boat?
just stand in front of any hatch until others start to line up behind you then just leave.

Navy stuff here:
We used to get boots sent to our Interior Communications (IC) shop for sound powered phone batteries.

Sound powered phones need no batteries they are powered from the air waves created when you speak into them.

We would then give the boot a charged up capacitor to bring back to whoever sent them for the sound powered phone batteries. We would tell them not to touch the ends of the sound powered phone battery (charged up capacitor). Then we would tell them to put into the hand of the guy that sent them.

After a few minutes we would get a phone call from a pretty pissed of sailor. When the capacitor was placed in their hand it would discharge and give them a shock.

Ha ha Good stuff.

Another Navy One,

We would deck out a green horn with all the gear and have him man a ventilation control valve. The valve wheel was huge and looked like a big steering wheel.

We would tell the guy it was amid ships steering (no such thing) and he would turn the wheel thinking he was driving the ship. We would give him directions over a headset.

The Captain walked by one time and asked us what we were doing. We told him we were getting this guy qualified for amidships steering watch. The Captain laughed and shook his head as he walked away.

Ahhh, yes. The donkey dick: A short section of rubber hose with a fitting that mates to the underside of an aircraft wing. This allows for complete draining (pogoing, depuddling) of the fuel tanks. More often than not, it usually doesn't seat juussst right and the mechanic gets a JP-8 bath.

FUNGUS: Fuck U New Guy, U Suck

Morale Pallet: a deployed "mattress"

F-16: Lawn Dart
C-5: FRED (Fucking Ridiculous Economic Disaster)

We did the above and these to the boots

send them to S2 to get 1:1 grid squares, or over to supply for some ST 1's (bag of rocks)

While on ship there was always a "mad shitter" That's someone who decides to shit in unique places around the ship without being caught. The worst case was some guy shit in a sock, tied 50 ft. of 550 cord to one end of the sock and through it down some ventilation shaft which ended up near a navy berthing area. The squids couldn't figure out the shit smell in their berthing for weeks.

Goooood Tiiimes!

OGA --- "other governmental agency." As in Q: "who is that creepy guy who got assigned to us who carries the bullpup?" A: "He's OGA" -- aka CIA, which, of course means "Christians in Action."

(As an aside, CIA, if you want to be less obvious, don't carry nicer weapons.)

Fobbit: Green Zone residents, aka REMFs

Death Blossom -- the "spray and pray and run randomly" method of fighting used by supposed allied Iraqi Security forces. Involed AK fire in basically all directions immediately at everything, including you. Not sure if this one made it as an official name.

Biap. Bagdad International Air Port

Haji -- the enemy. In Afganistan, it was "Mooge" or "Muj"-- short for mujahadeen
