Simply put, military humor, LoveItOrHateIt. This particular brand of funny centers on stereotypically dim-witted military personnel, asshole officers, and naive recruits.

* ''{{ComicBook/Asterix}}'': Roman soldiers are portrayed as a bunch of weak and incompetent losers. And quite a few centurions aren't that better.
