comment Two imperative clauses joined by coordinating conjunction taken as a conditional
I agree with the two previous comments. The problem I see here is that getting hurt is not something one chooses to do (or not), it simply happens. Therefore, the imperitive, "nobody get hurt!" seems very odd and it therefore takes some time to parse. With the other example, "nobody move and nobody shoot anyone", I understand this as two seperate instructions, as people more or less have the ability to control whether or not they move or shoot people (within reason).

comment Meaning of W in SFPW, or a synonym that starts with a W
@Andrew - That did occur to me, too. I think your explanation is most likely, though.
