Chicken Church vs. Penis Church: Which Looks More Like A ...?

Last spring, tourists began flocking to Florida to cluck at a church that looks exactly like a chicken.

In October, a Google Earth user discovered that a Christian Science church in Dixon, Ill., was the spitting image of a penis -- when viewed from above.

Now that the year is coming to a close, we at HuffPost Weird are left with a nagging question: Which place of worship looks like a more realistic cock?

Real Name: Dixon Christian Science Church

Does it really look like a chicken?That's rhetorical. It obviously looks like a chicken.

Does it really look like a penis? A local architect, who did NOT design the church, says it's "a little bit of a stretch" to say it looks like a penis.

U Mad Tho? "We're not fond of it being called the 'Chicken Church,' said an anonymous employee. "It's attracting people to us for all the wrong reasons... I think they're making fun of it."

U Mad Tho? "We didn’t design it to be seen from above," Church official Scott Shepherd told in an interview last month.

Bonus Points: The church's official website doesn't even try to hide it:

Bonus Points: The church's slogan is "rising up."


Weird readers, we leave the final decision to you.
