• The Marine Corps Marathon Route Looks Exactly Like A Certain Piece Of Male Anatomy

    If you look very closely at the route for this weekend’s Marine Corps Marathon, you will see what looks very similar to a certain piece of the male anatomy aimed squarely at Congress.

    The Marine Corps Marathon is an annual race held in Washington, D.C., that helps raise money for wounded veterans. The ninth largest marathon in the entire world was established in 1976 and regularly brings a race field of over 30,000.

    The race kicks off near the Arlington National Cemetery, the United States military cemetery across the border in Virginia, before winding its way through the district.

    It would only seem natural for the military marathon to travel around the National Mall, which is already home to one phallic symbol, but the route takes an interesting series of turns when it reaches the steps of Congress.

    There are any number of different routes the marathon could take that would circle the National Mall, but as others have pointed out in the past, the Marine Corps Marathon continues to use this hard stretch of road pointed right at the front door of Capitol Hill.

    It’s no secret that the Marine Corps demographic leans heavily Republican. So could the marathon route, which is coordinated by the Marine Corps Reserve, be a direct message to Congress?

    Here’s an artistic representation of what the designers may have been shooting for.
