What in the world? Where in the world?
Found this while googling. Interesting!
Just saw this recently when I was looking for some building. It's in England. The
architect was Norman Foster. It has lots of names including the Gherkin, the Crystal
Phallus, and the Towering Innuendo.
Reminds me of a news item I saw recently about a glass building they built somewhere that was actually melting away cars parked in that street because of the light reflection of the sun.
Oooh it also gives me an idea about a different building that can be used for a game. Will put it up... see if you can find that one too.
Yeah, I think Rock is right. The "Gherkin" in London. Gherkin is of course a pickle.
Rock, I'll bet it's called some names that are a bit more lewd than Crystal Phallus!
Well, oops ...
nope I didn't intend to be a bit risque here!
I was googling for something, then I got "pickles" in my google search results, which got me "lard", which got me "the gherkin building." DON'T ASK!!!! LOL Even I'm not sure how that progression happened! LOL
It is the Gherkin Building, 30 St. Mary Axe, London
It's the fault of the lard, Diane. You just slipped into an unexpected spot. Serendipity.
Barry, I used to be lucid now and then. And sometimes the computer makes me feel like a
Luddite. About 30 years ago my son and I dropped into a pet shop we often visited. The
clerk was a college kid who was doing his homework for a sex ed course. The assignment
was to list synonyms for phallus. I suggested the name of the actor with the most symbolic
name in filmdom.
Uh Rock, would that be Peter O'Toole?
I hope it's not the Dutchman DvD
Right with Eversharp, Barry. Somehow I thought you'd get that one. Are you
feeling a little perkier? Seen the coyote again?
BTW, I was looking for a pic of an exotic animal to post. Found proteles or aardwolf
which is a member of the hyena family. Seems to have dog-like characteristics.
I'd hate to work in a neighboring building with a view of the pickle building. I think
it would make me dizzy. (Well, dizzier.)
Ahhh - that is funny.
Separate names with a comma.
