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?

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.

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

Penis.

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.

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!"

Default 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.
