Why is this still here? It's a dumb subject and even dumber writing... Leokennis 00:00, 23 March 2007 (UTC)Reply

this page should be erased untill rewritten

100% true. The person who wrote this crap article is up for a blanket party themselves, I'd say! :)

Good god, I could write it better. It should be deleted or rewritten

It sorta seems like it was based solely on the film Full Metal Jacket

Please delete!!!

Hey, it has been improved! It is quite OK now. Thanks, whoever did it.

Yes, definitly better now. It should be listed as a stub IMHO but no idea which one...for now made it a general military stub article but change if there is a more suitable category :) Leokennis 13:41, 12 April 2007 (UTC)Reply


"The use of blanket parties and other forms of corporal punishment is illegal within the military."
Which military? If this means the *U.S.* military specifically, it should say so.

I agree--the military reference should be clarified. I would also like to know historical facts (e.g., when did it become illegal). Yfisaqt 06:24, 18 August 2012 (UTC)Reply

If the Trivia section was renamed "References in pop culture" (as that's what all of them seem to be), would that account for removing the flag saying "trivia sections are discouraged"?

padlocks?

edit

I can understand using something like soap or a similarly solid but light item, but i've never heard of people doing this with padlocks. blanket parties are generally not intended to leave any permanent marks or seriously injure the subject. almost every instance of blanket parties being mention is in pop culture but none of these references use anything as harsh as a padlock. i'm removing until there's some verifiable instance of this happening, in fiction or otherwise. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tegrenath (talkcontribs) 00:37, 14 August 2008 (UTC)Reply

Example of a blanket party with bricks in the NY Daily Post: http://www.nydailynews.com/archives/news/2000/09/07/2000-09-07_killed_for_chinese_takeout_5.html

Example of plans to use soda cans: http://mw.myiglou.com/oldstuff/_/33.htm

They must have planned to use full soda cans as empty ones wouldn't even swing correctly. So the assumption that only light solid items are used is not true. That said, this guys runs an anti-hate website, so I have a hard time doubting his veracity. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Russkiypenguin (talkcontribs) 03:57, 29 September 2008 (UTC)Reply

Under "In popular culture" at the bulleted point: "In the stage play and film A Few Good Men a pivotal plot point is the death of Private Santiago; the extrajudicial punishment given to Santiago is referred to as a "Code Red," a term invented for the play." No connection is made to the term "Blanket Party"! Officer Joe Bolton — Preceding unsigned comment added by Officer Joe Bolton (talkcontribs) 06:37, 19 August 2011 (UTC)Reply
