Greatest marketing gimmick for an album release for w2a of all time.

So as Amazon are about to ship 10s of thousands of copies of W2A around the world, their owner takes a woman named after two Prince songs to space on a penis shaped rocket.

Coincidence? I think not.

I recognized her name because she was interviewed on a documentary about the plane crash that happened in San Diego back in 1978, when the airliner PSA Flight 182 collided with a Cessna plane and crashed into a neighborhood, killing all the occupants on board and a few people on the ground. Wally Funk worked for the NTSB,and was one of the investigators. After all these years, her name has stuck with me lol

Yeah, not her. Clearly she was named before Wally and FUNK were written.

No, I was meaning the other woman on board who’s first name is Anotherloverholeinyourhead and middle name is JungleLove.

Jeff Bezos (who owns Amazon) just went to sub orbital space in a small cock shaped rocket. I know what you’re thinking. “Aren’t all rockets cock shaped?” Well yes, but this one is uniquely so with a massive bell end motif. (Inside and out)

Now, on board was an 82 year old woman who’s name is Wally Funk. Or Wally F.U.N.K in order to make the joke that she’s “named after” two Prince songs.

The joke being that as we enter a 10 day countdown to a new Prince album perfectly named “Welcome 2 America” an American multi billionaire who owns the company who will likely ship the majority of said album, flew a cock shaped rocket into space with a woman who shares her name with two Prince songs.

It’s a perfect blend of ironic Princely imagery and the American style of capitalism that Prince is reporting on.


Welcome2America.

Their logo under the Amazon name is an erect penis, why not the spaceship?
