How can you show your group to have a cohesive and united front? Show them whistling the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvWLMkxSwIo Colonel Bogey March]]. This is originally LostInImitation from ''Film/TheBridgeOnTheRiverKwai''. The tune is a real march, but there are also about half a million [[BawdySong bawdy little numbers]] written to it -- it's a [[StandardSnippets musical snowclone]] on par with the [[MajorGeneralSong Major-General's Song]]. In ''Bridge'' (the movie that [[TropeMaker made it a trope]]), the prisoners used it as a way of getting one such tune ("[[AdolfHitlarious Hitler Has Only Got One Ball]]") [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar past their Axis captors' radar]].
