Chinese Newspaper Erects ‘giant Joystick’ Building (LOOK) by roccio(m): 11:48am On May 03, 2013
When it comes to office buildings, does size really matter? It just might, if China’s main state-run newspaper has its way.

The People’s Daily is used to breaking news, but recently it became the news after some dirty, dirty minds realized the paper’s new headquarters was starting to look like, well, a giant joystick.

The building, which stands 150 meters tall, is currently under construction in Beijing. Due to its rather distinctive shaft — er, shape — mischievous pictures of the construction zone began cropping up on China’s Twitter equivalent, Sina Weibo.

More than one person pointed out that, with a little creative Photoshopping, the “Giant joystick” building fit snugly between the “legs” of the infamous China Central Television (CCTV) headquarters, sometimes referred to as the “Big Underpants” building.

Is this creativity or what?
