As a crew chief on f-16, I marshalled planes with different crap all the time. I did disco, the crack rabbit (marshalling in fast forward), the super-slow (opposite of the last one), many other dances. All of them are ended with signature pose and salute to the pilot (and sometime the finger if comes back code 2 under a BS call).
Favorite write ups in forms:
Pilot: Left Tire almost wore to limit
Me: Left Tire almost replaced
Pilot: Engine sounds like a little man w/ hammer banging inside engine
Me: Took away hammer, counselled the little man.
Hell, its a 14 hr work day and sometimes with no days off; so us flightliners have to do things like that to keep us sane. The funny thing is when non-flightliners come to the ramp; they wonder how people like us get to even touch a plane. lol.
