Objects as Male Anatomy Blogging

14 Aug

A long time ago, I promised some scatological humor (re: penis jokes) on this blog. Time to deliver. Luckily, Quixote is out there identifying the biggest phallic buildings, so you don’t have to. Thus I give you the Burj Dubai skyscraper, which he has dubbed the Ultimate Phallus:

Quixote’s footnote observation about the structure is priceless:

*Until they build Next Big Thing next year.

Who designs these things? It’s like they hired an architectural firm comprised of me and my friends from high school.

    Hahahha! Only someone with phalic obssession/fetish can come out with that design! I think it should be the Monument/Architecture that symbolizes the GAY Pride Parade all over the world! hehehhe! (But by golly! That hurt!)

    It would be pretty funny if the Burj Dubai was adopted as a gay symbol, given it’s located in a not exactly gay-friendly country. I bet the rulers would be horrified…let’s do it!

    Pretty much all the Burj Dubai architects, Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, do is big glass box skyscrapers, so I think it’s a fair assessment that their collective maturity is at high school levels — they display the requisite laziness.

    :0 Do u think its something to do with gender affinity? (maturity level).. its quite astounding when beautiful and paradoxical arts/structures came out from accident or plain laziness.. hahaha! I think Monet’ and Michael Angelo will be scandalized! hehhehe!
