#HHD Gallery: Half-Naked Navy Midshipmen Climb A Phallic Lard-Covered Sculpture

Let’s celebrate hump day with coverage of an event where mostly-naked Navy boys climb a phallic statue covered with lard. It’s my favorite event of the year. I covered it annually on my old blog so why not here?

It’s an annual rite of passage at the U.S. Naval Academy: the Herndon climb. Hundreds of plebes scramble to climb a greased up monument to replace a freshman’s hat with a midshipman’s hat. This year’s event took place on May 18. You can learn more about the event here.

Totally homo-erotic hotness. Be sure to watch the video above as well.
