I don’t know what it is about monuments, but something goes into the thought process of people that really make you wonder if Freud wasn’t onto something. So I present my personal Top Five Phallic Founder Tombstones:
5. Gouverneur Morris
It might be difficult to tell without a size model, but just look at the size of it. Morris would be proud.
4. Aaron Burr
Simple yet poignant. I find it very a-musing.
3. Alexander Hamilton
As one of the most overtly sexual of the Founders, this was probably inevitable.
2. James Madison
James Madison may be little, but his tombstone isn’t.
1. John Hancock
Be honest: you all saw it coming. With that name, how could it not?
Hancock’s grave is probably my favorite ever.
Maybe next to that guy who killed 99 bears
