Whatta way to kick off New York’s Fleet Week! The frosh-faced boys at the U.S. Naval Academy once again perform the annual tradition of climbing a greased up symbolic penis to replace a hat. It includes a swarm of smooth, shirtless young’un’s, and a feast of male on male grappling. We wouldn’t mind being trampled.
The winner is the young buck who makes his way to the top of the Herndon Monument first. It ain’t easy, what with the phallus being 21-feet high and covered in up to 200 pounds of Pjur Basic Watergl– er, I mean, 200 pounds of lard. This year, the honor went to 19-year-old Andrew Craig, who, after 2 hours and 10 minutes made his way to the top to replace the Dixie Cup Hat with a Midshipman’s Cover (whatever that is). His prize is a lifetime contract at Gay Fleshbot’s new porn studio, to begin filming as soon as Craig arrives at my apartment, all expenses paid by him.
Come claim your prize, Andrew! And congrats!
