It does not look like one, and you can't say it does

What does this building look like to you?

When it's finished, it's going to be the Beijing headquarters of the state-run People's Daily newspaper, but while it's being constructed, it does look a bit on the phallic side.

Members of China's Twitter-like site Sina Weibo began noticing the erection resemblance and posted humorous photos and comments until the unamused Chinese government began censoring any mention of the building at all.

It probably doesn't help that the building is near the China Central Television Headquarters, which many have nicknamed "Big Underpants."
