No Laughing Matter: Chief of Staff of the Army Changes His Professional Reading List to a Series of Memes

In a surprising move, the Chief of Staff of the Army has decided to shake up his professional reading list for military personnel by replacing it with a list of memes. This decision has sparked a mix of reactions within the military community. 

The reading list, which typically consists of books and articles aimed at broadening the knowledge and perspectives of army personnel, has long been considered an essential part of professional development. However, the Chief of Staff's decision to swap out books for memes has raised some eyebrows.

One unnamed source on the Army Staff stated, “This is fine, and it will fit in well with the Army culture." He went on to say, "In a recent survey we found that that less than 9% of Army generals actually read any of the documents prepared for them." When asked why this is the case a recently retired general stated, "Listen, I was selected to lead, not to read, I trusted my people enough to read for me. It's called delegation."

Some have praised the move as a creative and innovative way to boost recruiting in a digital age where memes are a prevalent form of communication. Proponents argue that memes, with their ability to convey complex ideas in a concise and relatable manner, can be a valuable tool for fostering camaraderie and boosting morale among soldiers.

Here is the 2024 Chief of Staff of the Army’s Official Meme List in its entirety:

Probably not the right venue for a satirical article, particularly if you want to be taken seriously.
