Earlier last week residents of Okanogan County in Washington were shocked to find themselves staring at a giant sky-penis (pictured above). Since then the US navy, operating from a nearby base, have admitted that the image was the result of a single mischievous pilot. Reactions in the town have been split like a log ever since.
“This pilot is a hero. Well played sir,” tweeted Eri Neeman.
“A grateful nation thanks you for your service,” tweeted another resident.
But some other residents were less than thankful with some calling it “unacceptable” and saying they were deeply “upset” at the image. Another woman asked, “how do I describe the drawing to my daughter?”
Far be from us to say, but might we suggest saying the following?
“It’s a penis. Boys have them. It’s a part of the human body, like an arm or a leg or a nose.”
Boom! Done. Problem solved. You can thank us later, anonymous and overly uptight citizen. We might sympathise with the problem more if the pilot had sketched goatse or tubgirl, but the basics of human anatomy shouldn’t be treated like some kind of eldritch secret. After all, it’s the job of a penis to be rigid, and not the people around them.
Unfortunately, the navy have decided to apologise and punish the pilot responsible.
“The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable,” officials told local media.
Well we here would like to stand erect in our belief that the sky penis was a valuable contribution to society. In a world with murder, starvation, rape and crippling poverty (and we hear that things outside of Detroit are pretty bad too) it’s nice to have a giggle and a bit of fun. Yes, it’s a long, hard joke that’s a lot to take in. You might even say that it stretches the bounds of good taste, but we believe humour is essential to filling the hole inside us all.
Seriously though, it’s just a d*ck and it’s kinda funny that a navy pilot did it. It’s nice to know that servicemen aren’t too busy being literal heroes to enjoy some childish humour. Considering how much stress their job is, it’s reassuring to know they can still have a bit of fun.
But what do you think? Did the pilot go too far? Are parents right to be horrified? Or do you think they just need to chill the f*ck out? Is anyone willing to try sketching a giant vagina in the sky or would that just flat out kill the pilot from the g-force? How would that even work? Please let us know in the comments below!
