Military Ha-Ha
There are 11 General Orders of a Sentry / Guard that you have to memorize by wrote and know by heart - and you should and were tested on them at inspections and at various down times. Boot Camp is nearly one long Simon Says game..... with a little bit of wiggle room.

You will notice that there is NOT a 13th General Order. During an Inspection - I was asked what the 13th General Order was......

Top Sarge could not believe what he heard - so he asked it again... and I yelled louder - repeating the same. His reply - "To Eat your MEAT ?!?! Seamen McKenzie what is your MEAT that you are EATING on guard duty?!?!" I was already in for it, no backing out now...... I shouted that SPAM was my MEAT, the MEAT that I loved to EAT when I walked my Beat ......

SPAM !?!?! You could see the veins popping on his neck - he was pissed - and then it happened... someone down the squad bay full voice murmured SPAM.... And he was off to find the offender,.... by the time he got there - we were, as a company of over 60 strong, singing the MONTY PYTHON chant SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM, SPAM..... We payed dearly for that bout of humor.
