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
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
It’s fine Barack, I didn’t run just as many times or anything. I’ll wait.
13. Staying afloat
No need to panic, the Coast Guard will be here soon. Thanks, Bernie.
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.
Since the dawn of time and inception of the Armed Forces, trash talking has been an accepted right of passage for military members. As sports entered the equation, naturally the trash talking intensified. As the internet gave birth to memes, this opened so many doors to hilarity. No matter who you are cheering for during the Army/Navy football game, we here at WATM hope you’ll embrace the epic nature of our top 20 trash talking memes.
Everyone knows the Marine Corps is the toughest, most badass branch – after all, there’s a reason they say, “Always a Marine”. Except on Army/Navy game day, then they are suddenly sailors.
Blending in with their surroundings is what the entire Army does best. Hoorah! Oh wait, that’s the Green Berets. Never mind.
3. & 4. Who scooted best?
That’s just how they roll.
5. Air Force
Although there may be seven (we see you Space Force) branches of service, only two are known for their epic rivalry. Three don’t have their own teams, one is the stepchild everyone forgets about and the other does the fun flyovers. It is what it is.
6. Navy Seals
The Navy has been winning on the field for the Army/Navy Game for years. Looks like they just won Halloween too.
7. Ocean Blues
When the Navy recruiter tells you it’s the perfect way to see the world, but all you see is the ocean or the deck you are constantly swabbing. #NavyLife
8. Let Freedom Ring
The Navy may have the Seals, but the Army has the Rangers and Green Berets. Their cool-guy factor is off the charts. Well, I guess the Navy has the badass Marine Corps too – until they drop them off to handle their end of the fight.
9. Spelling Bee-not
When you have the lowest ASVAB score requirement of all the branches of service, you might be a soldier.
10. & 11. Losing Streak
The Navy beat Army 14 years in a row, lost one game in 2016 and then just kept on winning. On the field, at life…. just, winning.
12. War Games
The truth hurts, but it’s gotta be said. Who grew up wanting to play Navy? It just didn’t happen! GI Joe’s never go out of style, sort of like an MRE – something that sailors never have to worry about eating.
13. Go Coast Guard
I mean, you don’t see this badass Navy Seal wearing an Army uniform when he’s in need, do you? #BeatArmy
14. And, ACTION!
When the Navy Seals come, they run.
15. The Uber Driver
When your branch sails the high seas to bring the Marine Corps to fight with the Army. Oooooh, burn. #BeatNavy
16. Holding the Fort
When you started the whole “Armed Forces” thing and support all of the other branches, you get some bragging rights. #GoArmy
17. & 18. Flower Power, Pew Pew
One branch is breaking down doors in the name of freedom. The other is protecting its citizens from the danger of allergies. #GoArmy
When you’ll wear anything before you’ll wear Army swag, like a pink bunny onesie from your grandma. #GoNavy
20. Playing Nice
Listen, we had to end it with this one. Trash-talking is all fun and games but every single man on the field would sacrifice it all for his country. No matter who you are rooting for, just remember that after the game – we’re all on the same team.
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.
It seems like everyone is doing that dumb “ten year’s difference” thing on Facebook. Personally, I think this is just depressing for the military community no matter how you slice it.
Either you’re a young troop who’s now reminded of how goofy they looked as a civilian, you’re a senior enlisted/officer who’s now reminded of how much of a dumb boot they once were, or you’re a veteran who’s being reminded of how in shape you once were ten years ago.
If you’re an older vet who’s been out for longer than ten years, well, you’re probably the same salty person in the photo, and no one could tell the difference or that you aged. Maybe a bit more gray and less hair.
Anyways. The Coast Guard hasn’t been paid, but at least these memes are free!
It was recently reported that, back in October, the 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit drank Reykjavík, the capital city of Iceland, dry when they pulled into port. That’s not an expression or an over exaggeration. They literally drank every last bit of alcohol in the city over the course of their liberty to the point where the town reportedly had troubles restocking for their own citizens.
The most astounding thing about this entire story is that only one young, dumb lance corporal got in trouble for disorderly conduct — and we can only assume they’ve since been Ninja Punched into oblivion. But seriously, I have strong reservations about there only being one drunken problem. You mean to tell me that we can’t throw a barracks party without the MPs getting involved and an entire MEU got sh*tfaced drunk and only a single idiot did anything wrong?
I’m not saying it’s completely impossible — maybe things happened and were simply kept in-house — but if it’s really true and everyone was that well-behaved… BZ. Color me impressed.
To all you troops out there that aren’t that one Marine in Reykjavík, you’ve earned yourselves some memes.
Ah, another Valentine’s Day has come and gone. By law of averages, at least a few people somewhere in the military spent a nice evening with the person they genuinely love. The rest of us are in the field, deployed, or stationed god-knows-how-far away from our beloved.
Sure, sure. Many of those in the military marry extremely young and the spouse is often quick to put eighty-seven bumper stickers on the minivan saying they have the hardest job in the military… But on Valentine’s Day, we can let them pretend being bored, worried, and lonesome during a deployment is more difficult than serving as a nuclear submarine’s engine mechanic. After all, military spouses do put up with a lot of our sh*t, so one day with an inflated ego is fine.
Anyways. Knowing the average memer is probably stuck in the barracks and taking Hooter’s up on their order of free buffalo wings for single people, here’re some memes to take your mind off the crippling loneliness. Enjoy!
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.
So apparently there are talks within the Senate to give each troop who deployed under the Global War on Terrorism $2,500 as part of the AFGHAN Service Act, which would also negotiate the end of the conflict.
On one hand, sure. I’d love the money. Bills suck ass and cash is king. On the other hand, well, let’s look at the lettering of the bill. It’s a one-time payment, and it’d be sent out to every troop who’s deployed anywhere under the Global War on Terrorism. I can only imagine the impending sh*tstorm that’d come when everyone got that check in the mail.
Deploying one time to Kuwait would get you the money, deploying multiple times to Afghanistan still only gets you one check and the older vets who served before 9/11 get nothing. See where I’m going here? The veteran community will turn into the freakin’ Thunderdome. But then again… that is a rent payment…
Anyways, enjoy some memes before the ensuing sh*tstorm!
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.
Let’s face it, memes are one of the best things about the internet. They simply wrap up our thoughts and jokes so perfectly — all with an image and a small amount of text. (Because who wants to do extensive reading when they’re just trying to let loose?) Yes, memes just get us. They get it right and we are thankful that they exist.
Including these uh-mazing versions to help ring in the New Year!
This overdone joke that we secretly love
2. Meanwhile, hoping 2020 actually has an end
3. When you accidentally fall asleep too early
Did I miss it?!?!
4. This amazing resolution that we should all be using every year
The government shutdown has been going on for well over a month now and the Coast Guard is still going without pay. My heart honestly burns for each and everyone one of those affected by the shutdown, but there’s one group of Coasties feeling it the worst: the Coast Guard recruiters.
I mean, think about it. It sucks to show up and still have to guard the coasts. Yet, they can continue their mission with a sour look on their face and abundant worries about paying rent. The recruiters? Yeah. I’m damn sure no one made their quota this month. Good luck getting anyone into the door when you can’t even promise them a steady paycheck.
Anyways, just like the Coasties working Lyft after duty, the meme train keeps on rolling.
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…
