you can count on the yanks for inventing new sware words- lol Psycho Cook did Private SNAFU really exist or was really a fictional character?
I've seen the movie reel as well. There is always some element of reality
in fiction I think there are a few Gomer Piles in the US Military
Snafu is also the name of a BMX company, apparently the owner named the company after his dog, dont know where he got it from, might have been from mad max. They make some really good parts for the freestyle BMX scene, and they come in really neat metal boxes.
