“The Washington monument looks nothing like the guy. It looks more like a tribute to Bill Clinton”

The Washington Monument, in Washington, D.C., is an obelisk that was opened in 1888. Obviously, the monument does not look like George Washington (1732-1799), but there are jokes.
       
“I think some idiots must live here. The Washington Monument? Looks nothing like the guy. Looks more like a tribute to Bill Clinton” was posted on Twitter by Obivonne Kenobi on June 22, 2009. “‘The Washington monument looks nothing like the guy. It looks more like a tribute to Bill Clinton…’—Achmed the Dead Terrorist” was posted on Twitter by Mandy 🌺on August 4, 2009. “Washington monument looks nothing like him. More like a tribute to Bill Clinton..attribute Jeff Dunham” was posted on Twitter by brad pool on March 8, 2013. “‘The Washington monument looks nothing like the guy… It’s more like a tribute to bill Clinton’ -Jeff Dunham” was posted on Twitter by “follow my new twitte” on July 20, 2014. “Achmed the Dead Terrorist” is a character of American ventriloquist Jeff Dunham. The joke about U.S. President Bill Clinton refers to the obelisk as a phallic symbol.
     
“Have you ever noticed how the Washington Monument looks ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like George Washington?” was posted on Twitter by “four eels in a trenchcoat” on September 19, 2019. “Y’all ever notice that the Washington Monument looks absolutely NOTHING like George Washington??” (shown on an image) was posted on iFunny on September 21, 2019. It’s not known who originated the image. Elon Musk posted the meme on Twitter on May 2, 2023, and it received millions of views.
 
     
Wikipedia: Washington Monument
The Washington Monument is an obelisk-shaped building, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., built to commemorate George Washington, a Founding Father of the United States, victorious commander-in-chief of the Continental Army from 1775 to 1784 in the American Revolutionary War, and the first President of the United States from 1789 to 1797. Standing east of the Reflecting Pool and the Lincoln Memorial, the monument, made of marble, granite, and bluestone gneiss, is both the world’s tallest predominantly stone structure and the world’s tallest obelisk, standing 554 feet 7+11⁄32 inches (169.046 m) tall, according to the U.S. Geodetic Survey measurements in 2013–2014. It is the tallest monumental column in the world if all are measured above their pedestrian entrances. It was the world’s tallest structure between 1884 and 1889, after which it was overtaken by the Eiffel Tower, in Paris.
