China's State-Run Newspaper Is Building Itself a Penis-Shaped HQS

Users of China's home-brewed Twitter-alike Weibo have been having some fun this week with photos of the phenomenally phallic Beijing headquarters-to-be of the state-run People's Daily newspaper.

The fun quickly came to a predictable halt when the ruling party's censors got word that their mouthpiece was being made fun of, and blocked all search results for "People's Daily building."

But not before a few dirty-eyed Weibos noticed that the People's Daily's Leaning Tower of Penis fit ever-so-snugly into the opening of state-run TV broadcaster CCTV's headquarters, known locally as the "Big Underpants" building.
