And on the Gay Pride Day, the lord looketh down and saw… a Penis. Yep, thanks to Google Earth, we’ve spotted a penis-shaped church in the U.K.
The Telegraph reported Thursday on a group of homeowners in the U.K. who feared their house prices might falter after Google Earth images revealed that their neighborhood resembles a huge penis from above.
Slate picked up on the story, stating that the residents of George Road, Edward Road, and Yeoman Cottages in Hoylake, Wirral, live on a cul-de-sac of balls. “We have all become a laughing stock,” said one man.
“We didn’t design it to be seen from above,” a church officer told Sauk Valley, which is perhaps the problem. It used to be that only God, angels, extraterrestrials, pilots, and birds had to contend with stray bits of architectural lewdness. Now, thanks to satellite services like Google Earth and Google Maps (and several more expensive surveillance options detailed here), anyone can take up an aerial vantage.
Suddenly we are feeling quite religious. Time to pray?
