The 13 funniest military memes this week — MRE edition

This week's meme roundup is dedicated to fine military cuisine. You know, the nutrient rich, cardboard textured, grownup Lunchables the military feeds you out in the field. Yes, that's right, MREs.


Some troops like MREs, but most will probably identify with this meme:

Recruiters are known for leaving out a thing or two.

MREs look so innocent, but there's a world of hurt waiting for you.

This little box packs a punch.

Getting the goodies always begins with a struggle.

When you finally open the box, you realize that the goodies aren't always so yummy, so you enhance them with flavor.

Tapatio and Texas Pete are also good choices.

Some MREs could serve as a weapon in the field.

The military got rid of flamethrowers because they were considered too cruel.

Just add "chemical X" to upgrade to the next level.

The upgrade is similar to a grenade launcher.

Ejecting an MRE from the body could feel like an impossible task.

Some people describe it as giving birth to a knotted rope.

And you thought the knotted rope was only a boot camp thing.

Nope, MRE's aren't innocent.

Yup, looks can be deceiving.

On the bright side, you could use MREs for other things, like getting yourself squared away.

Or, getting the comforts of home out in the field.

Grunts can sleep anywhere.

You'll grow to love them, at least until your next hot meal.

They make a great gift.

Soon, she'll be as deadly as you.
