The People's Daily building in China looks like a gigantic, gold-plated, um...

Is it just us?

THE HEADQUARTERS OF the Chinese newspaper People’s Daily has been likened to gigantic part of the male anatomy, reports Shanghaiist.

That much has been observed for awhile, but now final stages of construction are taking place, and it turns out the building is going to be gold-plated, which makes the whole thing even more garish.

It is in Beijing if you ever happen to be there and want to swing by to inspect it for yourself.

Here are some images of the building from Instagram.
