Some naval pilots took to the cerulean blue skies above Washington state’s Okanogan County on Thursday to craft some free public art for the inhabitants below. That art was a giant aerial dong, hovering on high like a cryptic message from a benevolent god. The people below rejoiced (tweeted). The U.S. Navy is pissed.

In a statement to KREM 2, officials said that: “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.” This isn’t an apology, per se, so much as an acknowledgement that the sky penis happened and that someone’s going to get a talking-to. Also, I’m neither a pilot nor a professional sky artist, but I don’t totally believe it has zero training value. That’s a well-formed dick!

The outlet also spoke to the FAA about who may have created the celestial wiener. The agency replied that unless it poses a safety risk, there’s not much they can do, as they “cannot police morality.”
