Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is one of those super rich guys, like Richard Branson and Elon Musk, who are really big space geeks and it seems that perhaps their main goal in becoming rich was to travel in Space, a bit like the David Bowie character in “The Man Who Fell to Earth.”
That’s cool. No billionaire yet has used their incredible wealth to emulate Bruce Wayne and fight crime with a super cool crimefighter suit and awesome car, but going into space is even more awesome.
Musk, however, may have just added a new and very strange aspect to this. His recent launch of an experimental rocket was considered by everyone to be a success, but the one thing everyone noticed above all other details, was that the rocket looked like a penis.
It’s probably just a coincidence. Rockets, bullets, bowling pins and all sorts of things look a bit like a penis; at least, similar enough for the purposes of low comedy.
Even for a billionaire, hundreds of millions of dollars is a significant amount of money, and you’d have to be one might strange billionaire to just say “Hah, I’ve got so much money I’m just going to troll the internet and get the attention of the whole world by using our high profile launch to get something that looks a hell of a lot like a penis into the news.”
On the other hand, if that’s what it takes….bring on the penis rockets, boys….it’s all in the name of science.
