Jeff Bezos teased over phallic-shaped rocket after launching into space

A historic moment occurred today as Jeff Bezos successfully reached the edge of space.

The Amazon founder blasted himself and three others into the sky, soaring more than 60 miles above the Earth

But naturally, Twitter users couldn’t stop ridiculing Bezos by comparing his spacecraft to a penis.

One person joked: “Jeff Bezos going to space in a cock shaped rocket is peak ‘divorced dad’s having a mid-life crisis’, get him an earring and a tattoo.”

Another added: “Jeff Bezos is taking a giant leap forward today for penis-shaped rocketry.”

A third wrote: “Congrats to Jeff Bezos on developing an even more phallic rocket ship..”

Many thought that the design of the sub-orbital New Shepard rocket may have been deliberate.

One viewer theorised: “Look, aerospace engineers could have gone a lot of different ways with Bezos’ spaceship.

“At this point, I feel pretty confident that he sat them all down and said “I’m going to space in a giant cock. A huge, glorious, shining penis that I will ride to glory. Make it happen.”

Others, frankly couldn’t believe it was real.

“I guess I hadn’t been paying enough attention to the news about Blue Origin to actually look up a photo of it.

“So… have we already talked about how Jeff Bezos will be riding a giant dildo into space tomorrow? I know all rockets are a little phallic, but… damn,” tweeted one person.

The quickie trip, on the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, lasted around 11 minutes from launch to capsule landing.

Bezos was joined by his brother Mark, female astronaut Wally Funk, 82, who trained in 1961 but never went to space, and the company’s first customer, Dutch 18-year-old Oliver Daemen.

Ms Funk and Mr Daemen are the oldest and youngest people to fly into space, respectively.
