Today's rocket launch of Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin has many people thinking of 'Austin Powers'. Laugh at the best jokes on Twitter.

Why is today’s rocket launch reminding Twitter of ‘Austin Powers’?

Jeff Bezos is heading off to space today. Good for him? We guess. Though if he was hoping to be the first billionaire, then we think Richard Branson has him beat. Either way, everyone saw the rocket launch. And, uh, look, we don’t know how to say this, but the rocket looked like a penis. Naturally, the internet had millions of jokes and thoughts about such a thing.

We even had the requisite Austin Powers jokes. In The Spy Who Shagged Me, Dr. Evil (Mike Myers) releases a rocket that looks like, well, like Jeff Bezos’s rocket. Naturally, the jokes were plentiful. So let’s see if Twitter can top that classic scene with their comments on today’s rocket launch.
