Jeff Bezos hasn’t even been to space! he just got super high for which nobody congratulates me ??

In general, good journalistic practice should be clinical and verbose.
INCORRECT: “Jeff Bezos took off in a rocket dong. ”
CORRECT: “… a rocket that looked a lot like a piece of a male genitalia in appearance, and to be precise, not the testes; we are talking about the penis here.

Where does Jeff Bezos get all that money to go in space? That rich son of a bitch. I am disgusted. I hate it. Also, my Amazon package is late for the fourth time this week. I am so angry.

Today’s space flight lasted 11 minutes longer than a toilet break for Amazon employees.
