They need to have a word with the Salton Sea as well, it seems.

"Erected" a sky penis? They were a bit SHORT on words for this?

OY

Also, "It's hard taking everything so seriously — even the Marines need a release every now and then. "

Well, OY, you've got to admit that it's a stiff job to describe that properly; even if you don't use any ejaculations.

I wonder what the potential strategic effects of flying your plane over a penis-shaped route during training actually are? On a wartime mission it might not be the optimal flight-path, but in training?

And unless it's done all the time, surely it would only make a tactical difference to the one mission anyway? Or would it be part of some kind of propaganda strategy? I can see that working to demoralise the enemy, in some scenarios...

I think what they mean is the strategic effects on the battles that really matter to the high brass.

Budgets.

"You made us all look like <s>idiots</s> dicks!"

Fixed it for you.

I am deeply offended by all these nonchalant references and double entendres related to male sex organs and orgasm.

Penis.

GenYus234 24 October 2018 08:23 PM

Would that be a chalant reference to a male sex organ then? I find myself plussed.

WildaBeast 24 October 2018 08:32 PM

Was that a single entendre?

ASL 24 October 2018 10:45 PM

Frankly, I don’t know where you’re getting that from. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m not going to sit here and listen to these wild allegations any longer.

Fireman.

GenYus234 24 October 2018 10:47 PM

I'm guessing that WildaBeast didn't carefully read your post and just glans at it.

ETA: Also, need to share an earworm that the title gave me. "Sky penis in flight! Afternoon delight!"

ASL 24 October 2018 10:49 PM

Donít pee absurd.

SatansHobbit 25 October 2018 01:30 AM

Meatus later, it will make a vas deferens. ;)

Alarm 25 October 2018 06:54 PM

it takes a lot of balls to do something like that!

:fish:

Marines who drew phallic flight pattern in sky grounded
 
The Marine Corps has grounded two aviators who were involved in flying a phallic-shaped flight pattern over California last month.
