Is it possible that phallic buildings all over the world are part of an ongoing practical joke, or are architects trying to overcompensate for something? Either way, you could say these structures are a stroke of genius.

Phallic architecture dates back to the ancient Greeks and Egyptians, two cultures obsessed with all things genitalia. They're responsible for many of the first phallic buildings but the fascination continues around the world to this day. Donsider this cocky collection of phallus palaces a good place to start.
