In case you missed it, the government of the United States recently unveiled the uniforms for their newly-minted Space Force, an entity meant to compliment NASA and be prepared for what they apparently believe is the inevitable day the countries of Earth take their fight to space.
I can’t believe I just typed that in a real article, but here we are.
The internet, of course, was quick to respond with their usual wit and hilarity, and here are 16 of the funniest replies to pop up so far.
15. One of these things is not like the other.
I know this is hard to understand, but on the left there is a picture of camouflage and on the right there is a picture of space. Study these carefully until you can see the difference. pic.twitter.com/7HhAeHRyrm

14. Let’s take just a moment for real talk.
Our deficit is exploding & we’ve been told we can’t afford government funded healthcare, that there needs to be cuts to a Medicare & Medicaid & Social Security, the EPA has multiple unfunded Superfund cleanup sites, Flint still doesn’t have clean water, but Spaceforce. Got it.

13. Quite an accurate representation, in all likelihood.

11. We see what you’re doing there.
This is actually very smart. Get kids to sign up for Space Force, and then ship them off to Iraq or Afghanistan.

10. Yes, this feels right.
Pretty sure your uniforms should look more like this. It IS space, after all. pic.twitter.com/1hbl8kkDSE

8. She’s just trying to be helpful.
My dog is better camouflaged for space than whatever that is. If you’re looking to save the tax payers money this was only $3 in Walmart’s infants section. pic.twitter.com/MYPec5hMUC

6. It’s quite a good question.
What’s the point in wearing camouflage in space? What’s the point of Space Force at all?

5. Okay but these memes will never get old.

4. The Resistance would definitely be lost.
Thanks to its uniform, #SpaceForce will be able to send soldiers on the Forest Moon of #Endor at the request of Dark #Potus !#MakeAmericaGreatAgain#USSF #StarWars

3. All I see in my head is Spaceballs.

2. I mean we do have a lot of actual problems.
This is an embarrassment of taxpayer money

I’m dying, y’all. Every day I wake up and ask myself “is this real life?” Apparently it is, but I suppose we live in interesting times, and that’s supposed to be a good thing? Or not, I can’t remember.
What do you think about these responses? What about the logo in general? Tell us in the comments!
