To the glee of millions watching on the internet who believe him to be the apogee of everything wrong with American inequality, Jeff Bezos launched a rocket carrying himself into space.
And it looked like he was sitting in a giant fucking dick.
Bezos has amassed a fortune unseen in human history and has become a villain online for those who see his ethos of unfettered capitalism and consumption as the root of many of society’s evils.
So when a video of his rocket launch started playing on networks everywhere—which he personally funded to the tune of $5.5 billion—some were filled with joy that the world’s richest man was stepping into the cockpit of, well, a big-ass cock.
You may have a company worth a full trillion dollars, the literal black heart of a supervillain, and the ability to self-fund a trip to space… but if your rocket looks like a dick, you’re gonna be roasted.
