Jeff Bezos’ Rocket Looks Like A Penis

Ground control to Major Johnson.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ rocket company, Blue Origin, successfully launched the New Shepard spaceship on Wednesday, bringing the company one step closer to commercial space flight.

The rocket reached speeds of Mach 3 and an altitude of 307,000 feet before safely landing, the company wrote in a blog post.

Those are some impressive stats that any man would be proud of … but as Mashable rightly notes, the only thing that anyone really noticed was that New Shepard looks like a penis.

Mashable wasn’t the only one who pointed the similarity out:

Congratulations, Jeff Bezos, you’ve officially made the most penis-y rocket ship ever.

The rocket was unmanned this time, but the plan is for it to carry up to six people, according to the BBC.

When reached for comment, Blue Origin declined to contribute to the penis discussion.

“Thanks for the opportunity to respond, but Blue Origin has nothing to contribute at this time,” the company said in a statement.
