Question: What’s black and white and not at all green?
U.S. President Donald Trump‘s newly-created branch of the military, the Space Force, is already the laughing stock of the galaxy of Twitter after unveiling its new uniforms, which are camouflage green.
The Space Force tweeted a first look at its new uniforms on Friday afternoon, in a message announcing that the new “utility uniform nameplates have touched down in the Pentagon.”
The tweet includes a photo of a green-and-beige camouflage outfit with “U.S. SPACE FORCE” written across the front.
“How many trees are you expecting to find in space?” one user wrote in response.
“Y’all expecting a need for camo in space?” asked another.
Twitter users quickly piled on, calling the Space Force a “farce” for getting the idea of camouflage so wrong. They recommended making the uniforms black, or white, or black and white … or just about any colour other than the colour of grass.
Several people suggested the uniforms were for Star Wars-style missions on far-away worlds, such as the Forest Moon of Endor.
