London's Newest Skyscraper Set to be Nicknamed the 'Cock and Balls'

By Gary Cutlack on at

The Spire London is the official name the post office will be using to deliver the Amazon packages of its super-rich tenants, but there might be a less flattering nickname in the pipeline for the building due to the unfortunate way its three components blend together when viewed from above.

There is one main, longer, bulbous part, flanked at the rear of either side by two smaller, spherical objects.

It's reminiscent of a childlike rendering of a penis and testicles, as if an architect has become bored and drunk and decided to make concrete graffiti atop London's streets. Hopefully the air conditioning systems vent steam from the tip. [Mirror]
