Being in the Field Artillery Line, I had to do what was called the "BOOM Check". This involed me getting my face in the rear of the gun and yelling "Boom" as loud as I can, the reasoning was to check for cracks in the barrel, needless to say this brought a lot of laughs from those that have had to do this as well. I got creative with my jokes, my two favorites were having a private go to the 1st Sergeant asking for a ID10-T form so they can get grid squares from the supply Sergeant, and asking the maintenance bay for blinker fluid for the humvees.

MSG Greg Kelly we used to tell new mechanics here at the shop that weren't used to tractors with turbos that they needed to give them a couple of pumps of grease, it was too freaking hilarious watching them look for a grease fitting.

I told one of my Privates to go ask the 1SG for a special type of closed-circuit radio, the PRC-E8. They asked for a Prick E-8 without prompting. Solid gold, and absolutely worth the smoke session.
