Updated list for Iraq and Afghanistan
    Scorpions are not mascots

    Wild dogs are not "man's best friend"

    Cutting COMM's power is not justifiable retaliation for a website being blocked
    ...Even if it was a really funny website
    Not longer allowed to protest next to the runway when the SecDef comes
    ...Even if the signs are really funny
    No longer allowed to ask Army personnel very confusing questions
    An M-16 is not an action movie prop

    Especially when an officer calls to request mobile generator support
