6 Funny Petraeus Memes to Help You Make Sense of the Scandal

petraeus affairSo, Petraeus. Am I right? This guy with his leading the CIA and his affair and his resignation before the Benghazi hearing. What a tangled web he's woven. Thankfully, there are hilariously brilliant people out there on the Internet who know how to break this complicated story down into concise videos and photos that make good for me brain slow understand. From Paula Broadwell to Jill Kelley to General Allen and back to David Petraeus, there's a lot of drama to keep up with.

So! Here are some of the best memes out there that'll help you compute what's happening right now with everyone's favorite adulterous General who may or may not be sipping on a bottle of Jack right now, eyeing the nuke codes.


First off, we've got this amazing video from Thailand that animates the Petraeus affair complete with cartoon sex, Obama, and email graphics you only wish existed in real life:

This Call of Duty: Black Ops II video game came out yesterday and features a Petraeus as the US Secretary of Defense. Awk. Ward. He won't be getting that promotion any time soon.

You heard the one about US General John Allen sending Tampa party-planner and inadvertent Petraeus affair leaker Jill Kelley roughly 20,000 to 30,000 pages worth of possibly inappropriate emails? Here's what 20,000 pieces of paper looks like, all stacked up. That's a lot of dirty talk and links to cat videos, if you ask me.

When The Onion poked fun at Buzzfeed for not somehow turning the Petraeus scandal into a way to prove the '90s was the best decade ever, Buzzfeed heard the challenge and answered with this: 5 Pictures That Prove David Petraeus Should Have Been on 'Saved by the Bell'

And in case you missed this, this meme makes a solid point. Head of CIA, yet can't keep affair a secret. SMH.

So, this is embarrassing. A local news station in Denver accidentally pulled a photoshopped version of Paula Broadwell's book and showed it on air. The problem? Someone had doctored her book title, All Up In, to read, All Up In My Snatch. Oops.

Finally, because I always wonder what Hillary Clinton thinks of, well, everything, here's a photo of her that I believe sums up her views on the topic of Petraeus.

While we're at it, here's how Bill Clinton probably reacted when he got the email from Hillary explaining what's going down with General P. 

As more info comes to light, I'm sure there'll be more memes that follow. Let the photoshopping begin!
