"CADET WHY ARE YOU LAUGHING" said by a hysterical (laughing) 1st Sergent. He was laughing harder than I was while he asked me.  :) :D ;D

I tend to stay away from joke commands unless the squadron deserves to have some laughs (or at least be in a situation which I perceive to be funny :D)

The first three just to see what they do - though the reactions to all of them are quite interesting:
"Column of files from the rear"
"Sit there at the position of attention without going to seats"
"Room Ten-Rest"

Miscellaneous Drill:
"Turn left (right) by doing what the guy in front of you does at the position he does it, march" (columns)
"At the same time, turn left (right), march (flanks)
"Go that way, march"

For the position of attention:
"Just stand there and pretend you're in the military"

Cadence:
Left, left, left, right.....izquierda, izquierda, izquierda, derecho, izquierda...


I often make up things in German and Spanish as well (as referenced above).

From my flight commander days:

"Continuous Change Step, . . . HARCH"

 ;D

That's called skipping down the road! >:D

Try this one...
double to the rear, by the right flank, left flank, double to the rear march.

mass confusion since each command ends on the wrong foot for the following movement.

A few I heard in the Army that I liked,  "Extend to the ZONK!"  "Mass Mosey, March" "Parrention" "SCATTER!" and "Ninja Vanish"  The best formation I ever heard was "soccer hooligans."

My favorite command in the Army was RepZONK!

"Everybody get out of the Bleepin' Road! There is a Bleepin big Bleepin' truck coming!

Out of the mouths of babes....

I thought it was a great: The command was clear, the importance of immediate action was communicated, and although decorum was sacrificed for the sake of proper form, protocol should not stand in the way of survival. In a pinch, I suppose, one could use the Monty Python command: Run Away, Run Away!

The proper command is:

Jesus Christ! Run Away, Run Away!

The preparatory command is very important! :)

Now, I cannot claim credit for this one.  My flight sergeant used to love this when I was a C/Basic way back in 1998.  Give the flight "Present Arms!"  Then, call "Ready Front!"  This used to get half of the squadron during Kelly Drill.  Even though I'm now a Senior, I will still use this on Cadets when I get the chance, or I'll teach it to the Cadet Staff.

I've heard something very similar as "Incline to the yellow line".

"Mass gaggle that way, HARCH!" or "Move out of the road, NOW!"

Only because we drill in a parking lot.  :P
