A giant penis visible from space has appeared on Google Maps, and the world just got a little bit more hilarious.
‘A giant penis you can see from space’ – cue every male saying ‘guilty’.
There are a lot of natural wonders in the world, but this man-made depiction of a natural wonder just became the best thing to look at on Google Maps.
A gigantic penis had been carved into the bed of a dry lake in the south west of Australia, giving ‘Down Under’ a whole new meaning. The drawing could be found in Marcus Hill, a little way out from Geelong, Victoria, and appeared online on Friday afternoon.
An unnamed artist was behind the masterpiece, which has come to be known as ‘Aussie’s wiener’, and it was so big that it could be seen from space. Disappointingly, the drawing has since been washed away, but it will live on through Google Maps until they update their pictures again. Which I hope never happens.
9Pickle reportedly spoke to the artist behind this wonderful addition to the world, but he didn’t give his name away. He explained that he drew the penis with a friend, and they committed to the work for a couple of hours.
We own the property just off the lake – it was dried up for about a year. And so we went out exploring on the lake one day.
The top layer was kinda like salt and when you stood on it, it turned into mud.
We were out there for a couple of hours, stampin’ away.
The drawing was approximately 50 metres long – which, to help you get a clearer idea of the enormity of the penis, is the same length as an Olympic-sized swimming pool. It is quite possibly the world’s largest penis.
The artists were first able to appreciate their work when one of their uncles spotted the penis while checking out his land on Google Maps.
The artist explained their first sighting of the erection, saying:
My uncle actually spotted it
He was just looking at our property on Google Maps and saw it.
The world’s manhood was first shared on a Facebook page called Take The P*ss Geelong, who called for the creator of the drawing to come forward in exchange for a beer.
The post read:
If the legend who did this can inbox us with any form of proof, that’d be awesome.
We have a beer with your name on it
People have been leaving reviews for the new erection, explaining that it left them ‘very satisfied’ and that it ‘was a good size (of lake)’.
The world is overjoyed with the immortalised penis, and have taken to Twitter to share the news and express their love for the drawing.

You can see certain large landmarks on Earth from space, and now that includes a penis. The lewd landmark is etched into a dry lake bed in Marcus Hill, Victoria, Australia, and is tagged as Betoota Lake on Google Maps, where it has dozens of five-star reviews.
