      I wasn't finished. First…… picture looks like the cat is being used as ammo.


    • I likes mah dranks

      I think all the spelling and grammar police that are below this comment are worse than these "first" tools :/

      • Gabe

        I agree. They are the most annoying trolls of them all.

  • mdg19

      Dogs were used in the war. Because they are useful. Cats hung around looking for handouts because they are useless. It is nice that some people were nice to them, but I still wish they would all die.

        Wish in one hand, shit in the other and watch me burn your house down looser… Note that my name is posted cause i'm just plan crazy like that..

      • Green Mountain Bot

        And I'm sure the improved morale they imparted, clearly visible on the faces of all these soldiers, was completely useless as well.

    I was unaware cats had such an impact on the military. Thanks fluffy for keeping the men and women fighting for our freedom company, but your still a mean SOB sometimes

    • Jezza67

      Seriously, cats were very useful in curtailing the rodents that invade highly unhygienic places like military camps and, especially, WWI trenches.

  • Shannon Coverdale

    Meh, cats

    • @McBeastie666

      Meh, Shannon Coverdale

    Ummmm…we couldn't 'HAVE' done it…..check your grammar son!

    • LOL@u

      only low-life scumbag ass sucking douchebags with severe inferiority complexes call people "son"… kill yourself.

      • justabill

        woah, ease off the coffee. this is just a comments section, not a street fight.

      • leylandliiiiid

        calm down son

      The title hurts

    • KyleGamgee

      Thank you! I was going to comment on exactly this.

      Though to be honest, I do feel compelled to mention that you ought to have a comma between 'grammar' and 'son'.

      Hey, it's not like the guy is pursuing a career in online "journalism" or something.

    • mynameisjulian


    • Lindsay

      Thank you! This is the grammatical error that drives me the most insane!!

      • Let it go

        I'm pretty sure it was the emotional abuse you must of suffered at a young age that makes u insane not some randoms grammatical errors

    • Gabe

      You grammar people suck. You are pretentious and annoying. This is the comment section of theChive, not a dissertation. Trolls.

  • st33

    Someone please explain the obsession chive has with cats….. ?

    • @RyanMatthew54

      You know what's better than a cat?

      Any dog

      • gfdeasg

        thanks Tosh

    • Ethix_

      Welcome to the internet, you must be new here.

      • bczu

        How about some love for the dogs that actually fought WITH US in war?

        • @McBeastie666

          They also fought with the germans…so………………..cats it is.

    • enjay

      cats are awesome lady. they do sick shit & are clever. the majority of dogs are just cute and chase balls. cats fight aligators.

      • stonewall_79

        Agreed man just assholes don't notice that.

    • hehaha


  • Shane Traister

    ……..Couldn't HAVE. Not couldn't OF. "I could not of made it"? That doesn't make any sense! I don't want to be an dick, but this is one of the most frequently made and infuriating mistakes on the internet. Please don't perpetuate accidental idiocy on the internet.

    • Shannon Coverdale

      Cool story bro

    • @RyanMatthew54

      Thanks Professor

    • Mrs. Baker

      I wanted to make the same comment about their mistake, but you ruined it with your ride ass remark. The least you could have done was spell check your own post…. An dick? Really?

      • Mrs. Baker

        Rude ass remark. Damn. Apparently we all just have fat fingers and faulty auto corrects.

      • tapsnapornap

        "an dick" isn't a spelling mistake, it's a grammar mistake…so maybe you should spell and grammar check your posts about people that should spell check their posts…

        • @timchipp

          SMH at whole post. Started out SMH at headline, but this whole thread is flawed.

      • Don Terry

        *rude, not ride. I agree with you on the spell check comment…

    • passwordistaco

      Too late dude, you're an dick.

    • Shazam!

      You couldn't of been an bigger dick if you tried.

    • Nick

      An dick. Ha. It's "a dick" or you could OF said "an asshole" but saying "an dick" doesn't make sense. This is one of the most frequently and infuriating mistakes on the Internet. You could OF just not posted this comment. Or you could OF not been such a dick about it. Maybe I shouldn't OF replied to yours. I don't know. I think I need an break from reading the chive comments. Y'all are all an bunch of dicks.

    • Ryan

      Awww. Shane just took English comp 1. In English comp 2 they will teach you: use "an" when the word following starts with a vowel. Now get out there, and troll around to make sure everyone is using that correctly. Thanks Shane :-). This really made my day. An dick hahaha.

    • Jen

      This just in: Dr. Shane skips class when prof goes over articles a/an/the, and looks like an dick.

      Shane's comment should be a chive post. Too funny.

      You should of let it go.

    • OklahomaMitch

      Guys, I think Shane meant "and dick". As in:

      Shane likes The Chive and dick.


      Shane was posting a comment, and dick was in his ass.

    #1 "come here kitty, I haven't eaten in 3 days….oh shit camera! No, I was just stroking it…"

    • stonewall_79

      You shouldn't eat a cat man, it's very toxic for humans, there's no culture in mankind that used to eat cats.

  • back2worknow

    Cats are the only animal that give zero fucks no matter what is going on around them. I guess that is why soldiers embrace them; their sense of serenity in a otherwise horrible world is comforting.

    • tapsnapornap

      They have nothing to fear, they're top of their food chain plus they have 9 lives. I'd be calm as fuck too!

      • OnehandJack

        They have nothing to fear except for assholish people that want to hurt them for being cats.

        • that guy

          With a name like OnehandJack and how you feel about cats, I wonder what your room/parent's basement looks like.

        • Hope Blakely

          And vacuums.

  • Jethot1200

    #21 do you know why I pulled you over meow.

  • Duh

    Please learn English.
    "Couldn't of"?

  • philag

    Chive, you used the wrong "of" in the title…

    • Xander

      There is no right "of" for this title. "Of" is not a verb modifying "done".

  • Kasey

    Combining cats with history? Genius!

      Oh shit man, if you don't have something nice to say, why bother?

  • Martin_McFly

    #19 The Wehrmacht needed Kitty Love too, I guess.

    That and stamps! Holy Shit, this guys got a stamp for EVERYTHING!!!

    • Jezza67

      That's a Russian uniform.

      • rico

        Actually, ww2 German. The "piston rings" on his right sleeve are that of the Company Sergeant Major or Spiess.

        • Martin_McFly

          It's actually the two pips on either shoulder tab that make him a Spiess, but good call all the same.

          I wont totally degrade Jezza67, because it looks like someone smudged out the eagle in this pic.. but still, it's nothing like a Russian Uniform.

  • that guy

    If only I could grow a stache like #12
