Does this Marathon Medal Offend You?

I came across this story on msn this morning and thought it was pretty funny.  I hope I don't offend anyone....
Here is what the article stated. "The 23,000 runners who completed the Edinburgh Marathon last weekend were likely pretty fatigued, but it wasn't the exhaustion that left their mouths agape when they crossed the finish line. Each competitor was awarded a medal that, well, let's just come out and say it: It looked like a penis. Race director Neil Kilgour "admitted that no one had noticed a problem with the medals when they were being designed" and said he wasn't sure if there would be a redesign for next year. Guess the race organizers think you have to be pretty cocky to think you can run 26.2 miles."

What do you think?  I would have never thought that this medal resembled the male anatomy!


  1. Haha, I would never think that! Although now you bring it up...it made me laugh!

  2. this is funny...no I would have not noticed it either!!!
