During an Army war game a commanding officer's jeep got stuck
in the mud. The C.O. saw some men lounging around nearby and
asked them to help him get unstuck. "Sorry sir," said one of the
loafers, "but we've been classified dead and the umpire said we
couldn't contribute in any way." The C.O. turned to his driver and
said, "Go drag a couple of those dead bodies over here and throw
them under the wheels to give us some traction."
