''Skippy's List'' proves that TheLoonie can be applied to the military as well as TabletopGames. The list consists of things that Skippy--an enlisted man in the US Army's psychological operations department[[note]]specifically drawing propaganda posters in [[UsefulNotes/TheYugoslavWars postwar Bosnia]][[/note]]--discovered were forbidden in the US Army, generally [[NoodleIncident without much context]] as to how he found out (although the blog does provide some explanations). It first came to the Internet back in 2001, lists 213 things Skippy Is No Longer Allowed To Do In The [[YanksWithTanks US Army]]. [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer As the site explains, everything on the list actually happened]], either as something [[TruthInTelevision Skippy himself did]], [[OrSoIHeard something he saw happen]], something he was [[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial spontaneously informed he was not allowed to do]], a [[LoopholeAbuse clarification to one of the above]], or "[[ItMakesSenseInContext I was just minding my own business, when something happened]]."
