Google Maps users in stitches after finding ‘phallic building’ online

A Google Maps user has been left in stitches after finding an amusing "phallic-shaped" building on the site.

The discovery was uploaded by Reddit user Poo0I56 and has left several online users in disbelief.

User Poo0I56 wrote: "Found a most rather phallic building in Dixon." The "phallic-shaped building" is actually the Christian Science Society of Dixon in Illinois.

One fellow user commented: "Just imagine a person going to that church and seeing a satellite view."

Another user rudely joked: "Someone should open up a hard cider place there and call it, Dixon Cider."

Over 100 people have positively 'up-voted' the Reddit post.

A spokesperson for the church, Scott Shepherd, previously told "We didn’t design it to be seen from above."

On the Christian Science Society of Dixon's Facebook page, that hasn't been updated since 2015, they describe themselves as: "All about unconditional love, spiritual growth and healing based on the Bible, Christ Jesus' teachings, and the writings of Mary Baker Eddy."
