The 13 funniest military memes for the week of October 11th

Just as a step away from the regularly scheduled news that is probably left in better hands than the "meme guy," did you know that former President George W. Bush had his museum debut at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C. this week?

Yeah. And I mean, they're actually pretty good. He's got plenty of artwork that you can find around, but his most recent series has been stylized portraits of wounded Post-9/11 veterans - with the exception of the veteran's eyes, which are drawn realistically. I'm no art critic, but I can tell that it draws you in, and you find yourself staring into the very souls of the veterans, and the rest kinda pulls you into how they feel.

I guess that goes to show you that after he got his "Presidential DD-214," even the former commander-in-chief made a name for himself in the art world. See? Now can you all get off my back for using my GI Bill on a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree?


Anyways, here are some memes while I reevaluate my creative endeavors.

1. Now former SMA Dan Dailey will rest and watch as the sun rises on a grateful Army.

4. You can see them standing in the award ceremony formation for the officer whose dad is a general and another guy who showed up for thirty seconds when the work was almost done.

5. Marketing experts have spent a fortune on finding out how to get their product synonymous with badassery and machismo. And yet, that dollar store energy drink has them all beat.
