Despite the fact that we already have the Washington Monument, it’s clear that some men love to throw their dicks up in the air.

The U.S. Navy—not always known as a hotbed of gender equality—was forced to acknowledge the actions of its members who were involved in drawing male genitalia via a jet over a rural county in Washington state Thursday.

Several residents on the ground captured the crudely drawn dick pic from the ground and posted the images to social media.


The Spokesman Review reports that an investigation has been launched, and the Navy also released a statement on the incident: “The Navy holds its aircrew to the highest standards and we find this absolutely unacceptable, of zero training value and we are holding the crew accountable,” officials said.


The plane was dispatched from the Naval Air Station on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound.

Eleven years of my life being spent in the Marine Corps tells me these dudes are about to be piloting a desk in the squadron’s training office, measuring fat people’s body fat and making rosters on Excel.

20 years ago they’d probably receive a high five and pat on the back. The current climate of the military does not take kindly to this kind of thing.

Side question: wtf do we (mensfolk) enjoy drawing dicks on things?
