Penis Building Is No Laughing Matter to Chinese Government

May 2, 2013

First came the oh-so-amazing—and hilarious— Mars penis. And now, we bring you: Building penis. (What can we say, we're highly amused by phalluses in unexpected places.)

However, officials in China, where the one-eyed-monster-shaped building is being erected (oh!), are not laughing along with us. Censors in the country have actually blocked photos of the unfinished skyscraper after users on China's version of Twitter started cracking jokes about the building's all-too-familiar shape.

Why so serious? The building will actually be the new headquarters of The People's Daily, China's major newspaper, which is run by the ruling Communist Party—and apparently, its members are a pretty reserved bunch.

Others have said the building looks a giant juicer or an aircraft carrier…but it totally looks like a ginormous dong to us. What do you think?

The Chicago Spire penis building promised to be 610 meters tall - although it never got erect.

Imagine that thing going pee-pee in your Coke.

It's not as streamlined as the dildo building in London, but maybe if they clad it in veined marble...

The building should be intact especially in China where males are not mutilated.

R6. It's kinda hard to tell unless you keep a jewelers glass on your person.

The Wang Building.

Didn't anyone look at an architectural drawing of this building before giving approval?

For chrissakes, it's Beijing. The text in the caption below it would look like a giant penis!

What R9 says. How did that ever get approval? I was thinking that perhaps the design was by a world-famous, award-winning architectural firm and the Chinese felt they couldn't say no as a face-saving measure. But apparently not:

[quote]The troll man who designed the People's Daily HQ is architecture professor Zhou Qi, the IB Times reports. And you know what's sort of funny? Not only did he beat out at least four architecture firms to construct this penis-shaped behemoth, but he's actually commented on China's penchant for mocking its suggestive architectural landmarks before.

Well played professor.

I love these pictures that include the aforementioned "big underpants" in harmony with the phallus.

It won't be so obvious with the scaffolding removed.

It's just following the natural forms of the Chinese landscape.
