People’s Daily’s New Headquarters Is More Than A Little Phallic

People’s Daily new headquarters penis

There’s phallic — the Washington Monument, skyscrapers, ice cream drumsticks — and then there’s penis. Behold the above, purportedly the new headquarters of People’s Daily. As Hug China explains:

Pictures of the People’s Daily new headquarters that is under furnishing at the moment have gone viral on Chinese social media. One of the picture taken by a netizen from a special angle on April 11 when the top part of the building was framed with construction racks makes the construction look like a colossal human male genital.

Of course, it’s all a matter of camera angle, as many have pointed out. But why be a spoilsport? The People’s Daily is a colossal dick.

Netizens, naturally, are having a bit of fun with this. Here’s the Penis Building, via Weibo, juxtaposed with the CCTV Tower off Beijing’s Third Ring Road in the central business district:

The CCTV tower is nicknamed Big Underpants. What nicknames do we have for the People’s Daily? Suggestions welcome.

      As I have often thought when it comes to the “journalists ” of China: “All in all you’re just another dick with no balls”.
