Poking Fun: Chinese Building Mocked For Rude Shape

A building in Beijing has got people talking due to the fact that it looks like a penis.

A building in China has become a bit of an internet joke due to its resemblance to a part of the male body.

The new headquarters for The People’s Daily, a popular newspaper, has got people talking because it looks rather like a penis.

It is unclear as to what the structure, which is currently under construction, will look like when it’s finished but that hasn’t stopped people from poking (excuse us) fun at it.

And it also hasn’t stopped censors of the government-run publication from trying to limit the amount of comments posted online.
