Melbourne radio station, ABC 774 was excited to interview artist Gregor Kregar about the big steel gnome that was soon going to be installed in the city.
To let everyone know about it they posted another of Kregar's works, "Transit Cloud". The aluminum art hangs near an Auckland train station in New Zealand.
And well... every single person who tweeted back had the exact same thought.
There were comparisons to other phallic installations.
Some were irate.
The sculpture of the flying penis cost Auckland council $200,000 and unsurprisingly it's caused quite the public flap.
