Willy-shaped church 'doesn't look much like a willy', insists architect

Whatever you say, pal.

AN ARCHITECT WORKING in the town whose church became famous online for its willy shape has insisted it doesn’t really resemble a penis.

John McLane – who initially submitted plans for the Christian Science Church in Dixon, Illinois but did not design the final result – said comparisons to a curving todger were “a bit of a stretch”.

Meanwhile a spokesperson for the church has said it wasn’t designed “to be seen from above”. Church officer Scott Shepherd told there were no plans “whatsoever” to alter the shape.

The new church gained a brief, bright moment of online fame after Tumblr user Christian Nightmares spotted its unconventional shape.

It was even augmented by an enterprising Photoshopper, who decided to imagine the moment the church flushed the fire hydrant:

Shepherd also explained to the reasons behind the church’s unconventional shape. It was built to curve around a large oak tree, he said, while also offering plenty of windows for natural light.

Still, at least the church has a sense of humour about it:
