''Skippy's List'' proves that TheLoonie can be applied to the military [[Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG 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]]."

See also ''Blog/ThingsMrWelchIsNoLongerAllowedToDoInAnRPG'', which ''Skippy's List'' inspired, as well as "Things I Am No Longer Allowed To Do At [[Franchise/HarryPotter Hogwarts]]", which has several different iterations, most commonly numbering one hundred and fifty. Not to mention ''Blog/SurvivalTipsForSHIELDRecruits'', which is past the five hundred mark, and still counting. Another variation of this list while still keeping the military theme is ''Fanfic/ThingsXCOMOperativesAreNoLongerAllowedToDo'' which has civilians getting in on the action as well. Another derivative is "The Things Dr Bright Is Not Allowed To Do At [[Wiki/SCPFoundation The Foundation']]". Really, we could be here all day listing these.

** Not really restricted to Skippy only. It's unwise to join the Communist Party if one wishes to have a long a fruitful military career, especially in a specialty that would entail needing a security clearance.

** The wordings on him taking a religious day off and buying people's souls imply that in the former he gets to do it once per world ending (for obvious reasons) and the latter is permitted on his own time, just not while on duty.
