It's a giant dick!

The rocket looks like one, too.

Woody!  Easily the best character in the Toy Story franchise, even if he did look like a giant

Honestly if I were a billionaire building a rocket company I would absolutely be like, "Just make it look like a dick, it's going to be hilarious"
 
2021-07-21 5:50:01 PM  
Because aerodynamics?

Okay, but why does Jeff Bezos look like a penis, then?
 
2021-07-21 5:51:27 PM  
Just throw a lampshade on it like Starliner.

Ground Control to Major Dong.

FTA: "So they reduced the girth of the shaft, but kept the capsule at the top the same size, which gave it that distinctive shape."

Amazonians are size queens.

With Covid going on and us too poor to play space cowboy, make sure to get your little prick

Tell me you're overcompensating without actually telling me you're overcompensating.

Akshiually...

I think it's fairly obvious.  The engineers he hired, just didn't like the guy, so they designed him a dickship.  "Yes, Sir, it's shaped like that for... aerodynamics, yes, that's it, aerodynamics."
 
2021-07-21 6:06:28 PM  
And if my slaves work even harder, my next space rocket will be gold-plated!
 
2021-07-21 6:12:31 PM  
What a colossal prick.
 
2021-07-21 6:13:06 PM  
What a dick ship.

Aerodynamics?

So, there's two... "things" here, I suppose.

1. The Tootsie Roll effect. There are people that are so obsessed with penises, it's going to be "whatever it is I think I see, becomes a penis to me." See basically any object that has one dimension longer than the others. The natural world includes a lot of these forms as a matter of efficiency.
2. It really looks like a dick. I have a dick (last time I checked). It isn't some rectangular or cylindrical object that happens to fit its function, like trees, buildings like silos and skyscrapers. Plants, etc..

I respect the science going in to the work. But, come on, that's a penis.

Sin_City_Superhero: What a colossal prick.


i think he's officially an astronomical prick now
 
2021-07-21 6:15:27 PM  
I gotta admit, I never saw a dick shaped space ship coming.

Today: Why Bezos's rocket is such a dick

Tomorrow: Why Bezos is such a c*nt

I've never had a problem with the man. He provides a service that millions of us use. Fu*k the haters. So what if he's rich. We made him rich.

I've got two insights here, Mackenzie Scott pretty much has a goofy looking dudes type and she's running with it.  And this is funny and all but the vagina is not very aerodynamic so there's that.
 
2021-07-21 6:23:24 PM  
I want to be the first to officially blame the patriarchy.

I have never seen a coont go in a dick, so that's, something

Well, space said "oh, I barely felt you penetrate me.  Any of those Saturn 5s around, perchance?'
 
2021-07-21 6:29:42 PM  
wanted more ball room in the cockpit

Because it has thrust!

Ironically the launch went without a cockup.

No one cares that he's rich. They care that he got rich by exploiting workers and evading taxes.

There.

Geez, people, what did you expect - they'd build a rocket shaped like a brick?
 
2021-07-21 7:00:46 PM  
Capsule separation referred to as L-Bobbitt maneuver
 
2021-07-21 7:01:36 PM  
It's the Ypsilanti water tower.

Has anyone ever even tried?

Here for the Dr. Evil comments and it certainly didn't disappoint.
 
2021-07-21 7:22:55 PM  
Fixation on male genitalia is pathetic.
 
2021-07-21 7:25:36 PM  
Ok, but what does his penis look like?
 
2021-07-21 7:28:25 PM  
So that's why so few feminists go into the space industry. Even the engineering ends up symbolizing the "patriarchy" lol!
