There's always the classic break the tension type.

Present Arms

Order........Pizza

And such.  Works especially well after a barrage of very quick commands

My favorite is using completely legit commands that NO ONE uses.

WIWAC it was open and close march and the like.

I also enjoy the, name slips my mind, command where the entire formation does an about, but each element walks in between 2 others.  I've seen it a bunch at The Quarterdeck of the Navy.  Can any of your sailors help a brother out?

We learned this in the Army in 88, Counter Column, MARCH!, Very cool when done correctly, otherwise humongous CLUSTER%$#@

^ CLUSTER %$#@, March!   >:D

My all time favorite......

"Now, fall in, in a single line or two, like they do in the army, all straight and stuff, hup, hup, hup, move it, lets go, look like you know what your doing, march"

Back when I was in Basic Training in the USAF, my flight Sgt was getting ready to go back to the "real" Air Force.  His favorite command was:  Hippitee ho flight go and hippitee hop flight stop.

You're not seriously suggesting that the Bilko movie was better than The Phil Silvers Show, are you?

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Steve Martin fan.  I can quote many lines from The Jerk.  But that movie was pretty lame, especially compared to how Silvers pulled off the Bilko character.

O'Grady is a fun drill game my unit plays occasionlly to test the cadets on how well they follow orders and know their drill. Basically Simon says. Worked extremely well when I was a cadet but haven't done it lately with the cadets and after our influx it starting to look like a real nice way to let them have fun and teach them at the same time, of course encampment was a lot of fun because you had about 15 cadets from various squadrons with various ranks and in a week they were a presentable unit even beating my squadron back home at the time because they knew how to do columns and a few other items which we were still trying to work out. (This is when I was a cadet.)

Yeah, O'Grady, IDR, or whatever you happen to call it is great for teaching some of the finer points of drill, as well as getting some competetive spirit going if you can get two flights, competing. Even if you don't have two full flights, a flight of 12 or so cadets can be made up into small units.

We always allow the cadet that wins to command the flight next turn, so the junior cadets get valuable experience learning how to drill a flight.

Counter column was a favorite of mine during basic.  Teaching cadets to do it is another matter.

When we were in Mess Hall, we did a movement to split into the 3 service types, (RA, ER, and NG) we called it Mess Hall, Harch (we sang the song from teh movie "Cadence" - chain Gang.

Cadet, let's not revive old threads without adding anything truly worthy of necromancy.  Look at the date before you post.

"Present salute!" -AFROTC classmate during an IDE (Individual Drill Evaluation-Someone evaluates another person on how well they lead a flight in drill. They have to complete certain commands in a specific order in a specific amount of time and keep control of their flight at all times.)

"Do what they just did, MARCH!" -My CAP encampment flight sergeant who was practicing drilling the flight

"OMG do that cool thing where you turn around and march between each other, march...or is it harch? Just do it ok guys?" -An AFROTC upperclassman during an IDE. She never knew what she was doing lol

When I was in Basic (Navy) we had a guy who couldn't get the hang of flanking movements.  The entire division would flank left, and he would keep walking straight, generally taking out three or four other recruits in the process.

During inspection, he always caught firewatch back at the barracks for some strange reason...
