** Sarge does this often, usually to Beetle when about to beat him up.

** Sarge does this often, usually to Beetle when about to beat him up. With Beetle's neck being thinner than Sarge's fingers, it sometimes involves the victim's neck being entirely enclosed within the first holding him up.

** Cookie tells Beetle to write a note for the notice board exhorting the soldiers to eat everything on their plates. His being lazy and just writing "eat everything" results in their raiding the kitchen.

** Sarge and the guys are coming back from a movie that Sarge says wasn't too funny. Turns out he didn't fully understand what was happening, and after they explain it to him, he's laughing for what looks like hours afterwards.

** Sarge and the guys are coming back from a movie movie[[note]]it sounds kind of like the first ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther'' film[[/note]] that Sarge says wasn't too funny. Turns out he didn't fully understand what was happening, and after they explain it to him, he's laughing for what looks like hours afterwards.

** For a whole page, Sarge is heard singing different songs in the shower. Killer wonders how someone can stay in the shower for so long. ''He's'' spent the same time doing up his hair.

* InnerMonologueConversation
** General Halftrack is freaked out when he notices his wife can effectively read his thoughts. She also reacts to ''that'' thought.
** One time, Beetle keeps his mouth shut at Sarge, but gets beaten up anyway for obviously thinking something bad. He complains that he has a sergeant that's both psychopathic and telepathic.

'''Ms. Buxley:''' General Halftrack's [[SexySecretary beautiful secretary.]] She used to be as [[BrainlessBeauty dumb as a post]], but has [[CharacterDevelopment developed]] some since the whole [[MediaWatchdog sexism criticism thing]]. She usually works with [[SassySecretary Private Blips]], [[GadgeteerGenius Chip Gizmo]], and the officers of the camp. She seems to be [[StrangledByTheRedString dating Beetle now,]] even though there wasn't much to their relationship [[LastMinuteHookup before a few years ago.]] Halftrack's other assistant is a mature and rather plain woman called Private Blips.

Added DiffLines:

* LethalChef: Cookie seems to be a stereotype of bad army chefs. Jokes about his meatballs, which can be used as handballs, are the most common. Thankfully for him Sarge will eat anything.


Added DiffLines:

* SexySecretary: Ms. Buxley has been known to set the general's hair on fire, literally, or ignite rockets when he sees her in a bikini. (See the Rule 34 entry below, most of it is intentional.) Not that she's some dumb blonde, seeing as she has far more brains than her boss does.

Added DiffLines:

* SesquipedalianLoquaciousness: Plato has been known to use verbose and abstract language, naturally enough since it's part of the [[TheSmartGuy stereotype he represents]]. On one occasion, he used it to gain access to a telephone meant only for official business by expressing his intentions so fancily the secretary didn't realise he was saying he was inviting his buddy over to the bar with the rest of them.
