I've seen an increase in dodgy links posted by users/bots on this sub, many of which are advertising scam websites most commonly selling t-shirts of various memes. If you see any suspicious links I would advise not clicking them, and instead reporting the comment. I've already banned 10 or so people in the comments for scamming.
This is VERY 1991.

What’s wrong with his eye?
These actually used to be common, and are such a good marker of this era of history
This hits home.
I actually had a cousin who was in desert storm and brought me back a shirt like this.
It had Elmer fudd on it, and it said "be vewy, vewy quiet. I'm hunting iwaqis"
He looks like he's made of CHEESE
My dads friend was in a spotter plane in the gulf, he got shot down and died.
I was involved in Desert Shield/Storm, and Bart was about as common over there as Kilroy Was Here during WWII.
I'm about to start operation DESSERT storm gonna hame me some cake mmmmm 🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰🍰
I used to have a Bart Skampson shirt that said "I'm a rude boy". See, bart's a little scamp, and he's rude because he doesn't respect his elders.
not enough ketamine
this is sad because Bart was a popular image for soldiers during the gulf.
Wow that takes me back. I was 10 at that time and I remember seeing shirts like that at the mall. This one in particular was being sold from a tshirt cart right out in public. What a different time.
This was Ranger Up before Ranger Up was Ranger Up.
all of the desert storm shirts that circulated around that time are BOMB! i wish i could find more!
The fuck is that drawing of the UAE borders?
I like the way this sucks
Eat pant, Taliban
[Insert clever Timothy McVey joke here followed by a /p/funnysad plug]
His eyes though
Don't forget, yvan eht nioj!
On eye on you
One eye on the streets
All that depleted uranium has given him wonky eyes
I remembee the gulf war being on TV a lot. Would have been around 8 maybe. And I genuinely thought scud missiles were called "spud missiles".
Look at barts eyes looks like hes trying to remember something on one eye and the other is trying to forget.
The concussive blast had ruined Bart's brain, permanently damaging the nerves in his eyes so they were positioned lopsidedly on his head. Life hadn't been easy for Bart, coming from a broken home where his father routinely strangled him and living in the shadow of his much more successful younger sister, he joined the war effort at 18 because college wasn't a real possibility. Now he's lucky to not be going home in a bag- but still damaged by the war. As the general pins the medal on his chest he has but one thing to say: "Eat my shorts!"
There was no biological warfare, Bart's just fucked up because of the abuse and oxygen deprivation his father inflicted. Gulf war syndrome is a myth obviously. -Govt especially the V.A.'s stance
Jesus the UAE borders couldn’t be more off
This is the 1991 equivalent of a Rick & Morty Military shirt today.
Don't have a cattle dude
Dude, what's wrongwithyerface?
This is so sad
Man Gen X even slacked off with their war.
For some reason I remember this meme since from at least the 90's
Ok boot boy
It's time to get down to the boogaloo
And who could forget oh dear rat boy
What's with the long UAE
Eat my shorts, Saddam
