word du jour: PHALLUS

Once again I reference Merriam-Webster online.  The definition of PHALLUS is simple:

“a symbol or representation of the penis”

Because a picture is worth a thousand words, I have opted to illustrate the meaning with pictures rather than words.  (You may also want to note that most of these phallic buildings are financial institutions–that are boning us–coincidence?)

washington-monument

washington-monument-baltimore

principal-financial-group-des-moines-ia

bofa-charlotte-nc

astoria

While some of these look rather painful, they all required quite a bit of engineering…  🙂

Viva Viagra?
