U.S. rower Henrik Rummel and his coxless team were awarded the bronze medal today at the London 2012 Games, but all anyone could focus on was his package. A Reddit user posted an image of Rummel in which he seemed to be sporting a larger-than-life bulge, with the suggestive comment: “One US rower was particularly excited by his Bronze medal.” The note prompted a response from Rummel, who denied that it was an erection: “I swear it’s not erect!” Rummel said. “I don’t know why it ended up in that position but there you go.” Right. Despite his efforts to quell the rumors, the photo and its accompanying comments continue to make jaws drop across the country. One supportive Reddit user even felt the need to rise to Rummel's defense, opining: “Dude when you win a medal in the goddamn olympics your penis can be however you want. You earned it.” We took to Twitter to see if others agreed. Here are our top ten perky penis tweets:
