Military working dogs and police canines are some of the most capable members of their respective forces. But they also have big pointy or floppy ears and wagging tails and cute little paws and sometimes we just can’t even help ourselves and we want videos of them being fur missiles or photos of them searching for stuff or any memes of them.
Coincidentally, that’s what we have here: 8 memes of awesome working dogs and police canines (except one is probably a military family’s pet but whatever):
“You’re hired. Please proceed to the kennels for unlimited petting.”
And yes, I know this is probably a pet German Shepherd, but there’s some officer in the photo so I’m letting it slide.
Just watch out for the luggage tags. They’ll snap on you if the restraints come off.
“It’s really just me signing my work, sergeant.”
Also, Ronin is a pretty sweet name for a police dog.
As long as you know, for sure, he’s the bad guy before you bite him, what’s the problem?
I mean, it’s free. What do you have to lose? Besides a bicep.
Gonna need to eat lots of bad guys for protein, as well. But first, come lick our faces.
Serving as President of the United States is no easy task. But, with all due respect, it still leaves you at the mercy of the rest of the population to turn you into memes. It’s almost our duty as constituents. Join us as we poke fun — gently — at our commanders in chief and their most recognizable qualities.
This perfect Harry Potter reference
Don’t worry, Joe, NOT SLYTHERIN.
2. Because even presidents tell lame jokes
That still make us LOL
3. When photoshop makes Karen jokes even more hilarious
The Super Bowl came and went. If you’re a Patriots fan, good going. Now your boy has enough Super Bowl rings to snap half of all life out of existence. Tom Brady was somehow the “underdog” that game… because reasons? The Rams didn’t do anything spectacular after being given a free touchdown via a no-call against the Saints and they got flag after flag for seemingly pointless reasons, and they they still couldn’t… You know what? Whatever. I’m a Detroit Lions fan. We’re used to terrible calls and disappointment.
The real military highlight on Sunday was the Google Ad that inspired everyone to search for civilian jobs for their given MOS for the hell of it. Sometimes, the algorithm was hilariously off. Other times, to be honest, we all kinda knew what the results would be: Aircraft repair guys got told to repair aircraft, commo guys got system admin jobs, water dogs got water treatment jobs, and so on.
On that note, here’re some memes to help soothe over the pain of knowing you could be getting paid six figures for doing a less-stressful version of what you’re doing now.
Recently, a Marine was kicked out of a wedding for wearing his Dress Blues instead of a regular suit and tie. According to the post on Reddit, he was polite and gentlemanly but was asked to leave because he didn’t follow the dress code and the bride felt he was taking the spotlight away from the marriage.
There’s still a lot of other variables that aren’t really known that could really determine who’s the a**hole in this situation. If he was pulling a “you’re welcome for my service” routine, totally justified. If he didn’t have any other suit and tie, he could have probably explained that. If he was flexing his bare pizza box and two ribbons, he’s a douche. Since he was a friend of the groom, did he ask first? So on and so forth.
I’m personally of the mindset that he didn’t follow the uniform of the day and weddings are one of those things where you just nod and agree with the bride. But that’s ultimately pointless since this wedding has no bearing on my life.
Anyways. Since we in the U.S. aren’t subject to the EU’s Article 13 ruling on copyright material and the gray area it puts on sharing memes – have some memes!
If you know the language of the military, you know what we’re talking about. It’s basically a language all its own. Full of acronyms and nicknames that don’t make sense to the general public, there are entire strings of conversations that can go on including nothing but jargon. (And good luck to anyone not in the know.) That’s where funny memes come in.
From discussing ranks, daily situations, moves to everyday gear, jargon is a THING in the military. Take a look at these common memes discussing what it’s like to speak the language … and if you don’t.
When there’s just a bunch of letters
2. Sometimes you can’t shut it off … even when you want to
Stop, translate, re-state.
3. The point doesn’t always get across
But it’s a good time.
4. When you accidentally teach civilians
Make it stop.
5. Seriously though
Do you hear yourself?
6. When you first joined and had no idea what was happening.
The vocab keeps on coming.
7. Deciphering the code like…
8. Then when you are lost and just stay silent.
Eventually it’ll all make sense.
9. The people who shorten everything
You are so cool.
10. It never stops
Military jargon — in all branches — is a language all on its own, and once you learn it, it sticks with you for life. After all, it’s an earned right of passage. Take it with you and use it well!
There was a study conducted recently by the CDC and the Delphi Behavioral Health Group that concluded that the U.S. Military beats out literally every other profession in days per year spent drinking. If you roughly equal out the days spent with the total number of troops, that puts us at 130 days on average, compared to the 91 day average for every other profession.
And, I mean, it makes absolute sense. No other profession has a culture around drinking like the military. It’s not “drunk like an interior designer” or “drunk like a software developer.” Toss a bunch of them into a barracks with nothing to do but drink after a long and stressful day, and you’ll see their numbers rise too.
So raise a glass, folks! I’m damn sure we’ve managed to keep that number one position since 1775 and won’t let go of it until the end of time!

Female sailors seem to be getting the hair regulations loosened to allow a more natural look. This (obviously) caused a gigantic backlash among male soldiers demanding the permitting of beards. Honestly, it doesn’t really make sense to disallow sailors to grow beards in the first place. After all, naval history tied to glorious beards, in both the U.S. Navy and around the world. As long as they keep their beards groomed, it’d be a boost to morale and it’d cut out the crappy rush to shave each morning.
But we’ll see. 7th Fleet will probably crash another ship into a civilian fishing vessel and blame it on sailors having beards instead of actually taking responsibility for it.
I’m calling it now. This weekend will be one of the quietest weekends in recent history. Why? It has nothing to do with 2nd MARDIV’s insane level of micromanaging and everything to do with how lower enlisted troops think.
For starters, it’s a non-pay day weekend for the second time in a row. Less shenanigans when everyone is broke as Hell. Secondly, NCOs will know exactly where everyone is located at any given moment. Friday night? They’re all out seeing Avengers Endgame. Saturday afternoon? In the barracks playing the new Mortal Kombat game. Saturday night? Probably seeing Avengers again. Sunday? Too hungover (I said quiet, not uneventful) and Sunday night will be Game of Thrones.
If you’re an NCO trying to find a good reason to cheer up your sergeant major, pointing out the lack of blotter reports on their desk will surely help.
Here’s to a quiet, entertainment filled weekend. Enjoy some memes.

My ass is firmly in the “why leave a perfectly good aircraft” category.
Call me a leg, but at least we use Air Assault these days.
Remember back when they first announced that the 1st Security Forces Assistance Brigade would be a thing and everyone lost their collective sh*ts because they’re conventional troops that wear berets like special operations, rock a unit patch that looks like special operations, and even share their first two initials (SF) with special forces?
Yeah. Well, they’re currently deployed doing grunt things with the Green Berets while your ass is setting up a Powerpoint presentation on how to teach drill and ceremony.
Funny how that works out, huh? Anyways, have some memes before you get too butthurt.
Blues, Pinks and Greens, NWUs, Cammies, ABUs, ODUs, ACUs — whatever you wear, or whatever you call it, it’s the standard in your branch. These are names of the most common daily wear (and dress uniforms) of military branches. Though the uniforms themselves vary among the ranks and jobs, the jokes usually do not. After all, there are ample rules and variations, and it’s tough to keep it all straight. Besides, what fun is it if you don’t poke fun at the next branch’s duds? Don’t worry though, it’s all in good fun.
Take a look at these military uniform inspired memes and the people who proudly represent them every day of the year.
There’s no denying that 2021 has started with a bang – good or bad, we’ve had a dramatic first few weeks of January. But, this is also a stark difference to what we were hoping it would be. For some reason, the majority of the population had an unwavering, illogical view that with the New Year, we’d all have a change of fate and everything would be better. Like magic. The clock flipped and all the bad stuff would disappear … or at least take a sharp turn toward the decline.
That has – obviously – turned out to not be true. However, the transition and lack of smoothness has left us with a whole slew of memes. Join us as we chuckle about our own blindness to reality, and the jokes that came along with it.
The 2021 NYE party we wished we’d had
What a snoozer.
2. Still no travel plans in the foreseeable 2021 future
Yet so many dishes.
3. Don’t forget the laundry
Cycle watching is the new streaming alternative.
4. Meanwhile, the online shopping is getting even more disappointing.
*clicks return now* At least in 2021, returns are easier than they used to be.
5. For anyone who tried an at-home haircut
Just wait it out folks, please.
6. There’s always background filters
Travel anywhere with a green screen and a swipe, because that’s about all you’re allowed to do in the first few months of 2021.
7. But hey, spring is coming soon
HOPEFULLY it’s the perfect weather for evening out those mask lines.
8. The latter is the January we actually got
Hopes were dashed; breakfasts were ruined.
9. When you wake up and everything got crazy
We just wanted a little rest. Sigh. 2020’s boredom naps are forecasted to continue well into 2021.
10. But no matter what, resist the urge to get bangs!
This is something even the New Year can’t fix.
We may not have started off the year the way we planned, but there are always memes to be made. From unfortunate haircuts, to canceling yet one more set of travel plans, so far, 2021 is not turning out to be the breath of fresh air that we had hoped for. But it’s here and we’re tackling it the best way we know how: with dumb jokes on the Internet. Go forth meme makers and continue your good work.
The Space Force, a relatively new branch within the Air Force, has without a doubt been a controversial subject. The poor dears have also found themselves the subjects of a number of inventive and insulting memes. From space monsters to wardrobe malfunctions, here are 20 brilliant memes about the Space Force. Sorry, guys. We couldn’t resist.
1. What’ll it be?
2. Why so serious?
I guess after the thousandth wise crack, it gets old. You’ve got to admit- despite her annoyance, her lavender hair is fire.
3. Aiming for the stars
ROTC kids are usually tough. And then there’s this guy, looking like a balloon animal in a baseball cap.
4. Why does this look so familiar?
Oh. That’s why. Who okayed this?
5. Expectations vs. reality
It’s no different than the rest of them…
6. Nothing ever changes, does it?
Just pretend it’s Tatooine.
7. Everyone wants to join
Don’t worry. It’s humane in real life. Promise.
8. It is the Space Force, after all.
After we get mainstream commercial space travel, this should absolutely be the flight attendant uniform.
9. Space Force hairstyles are…innovative?
He should sue.
10. Me and my homies
Is this not how the Space Force spends their weekends?
11. Good thinking
Eat all the fast food you want…
12. Protecting the galaxy
Just wait for the aliens to come. Then you’ll see. You’ll aaall see.
13. So effective.
The best disguise is in plain sight.
14. Did Michael Scott do this on purpose?
Either way, I’d serve next to Steve Carell any day.
15. ‘Space Isis’
You heard it here first, folks!
16. The nightmares no astronaut will admit to.
Maybe the giant space bugs are herbivores?
17. Standing guard at the StarGate
It’s still cool, I guess. Almost.
18. Student loan forgiveness?
It’s all about the hustle.
19. They won’t pay
The alien exchange rate is probably out of this world anyway…
Although we here at WATM know the importance of the moment we witnessed the peaceful transfer of power, we can’t ignore the facts: Senator Bernie Sanders turned into the biggest and best part of the day. The endless memes and photo sharing of Sanders after President Biden was sworn in as our nation’s leader may have broken the internet. In a good way, of course. Here are WATM’s top 20 memes featuring Sanders. I figure you have to imagine everything in his voice to adequately appreciate this, so dig in and bring your imagination. Also, maybe curl up in your favorite mittens (see what I did there) to enjoy.
Listen, this man on the moon thing is a big deal, amiright? But let’s get this exploring space thing on the road.
2. America’s treasure
I am a national treasure. Change my mind.
3. Let’s get to work
Okay people! We are winning the war but that doesn’t mean we sit around lollygagging, lets go to work! Bernie fits right in.
4. Knocked out
That’s going to leave a mark. Too bad he didn’t believe in Medicare for all.
5. Winter is coming
This fur better be fake or I’m going to get loud.
6. Thrill ride
Who has time for this? We have a world to save.
7. Stop whining
These kids think they have it bad, they have no idea what’s waiting for them out there without Medicare for all or free college.
8. Feeling the Bern
There’s the feelings chart and then there’s feeling like Bernie. It’s in its own class.
9. Inauguration? NBD.
When you are Bernie, you multitask. Inauguration of President Joe Biden? Check. Daily errands? Check.
10. Hanging out
Feeling cute, might build a skyscraper today.
11. Hitting high notes
I was told there would be singing and music. I was lied to.
12. Passed over

14. Make love not war
If they had just listened to me, we wouldn’t be doing this war thing. I’ll just watch.
Bernie knows there’s no place like home.
16. Postal fail
When you believe that government can work but you also know the United States Postal Service takes forever.
Bernie as the marriage therapist when things get deep and Jada says she got into an “entanglement”.
When you could be saving the whales or marching for wage increases, but you are stuck at your boss’ promotional ceremony instead.
19. National defense
No need to send the National Guard to defend the Capitol, Bernie is on the job.
And finally, our favorite… of course.
20. Hurry up and wait
Bernie is every single military spouse across the globe waiting to start their life. Again.
