Well, sort of.

This is just about as ‘Straya as it gets. A giant dick and balls has appeared just outside of Geelong in Victoria. It has been carved into a dry lake bed, which is a thoroughly unsurprising place for an unsolicited penis to show up.

How big is the engorged member? Well, Google’s satellite managed to pick it up from space. Naturally, it has been dubbed ‘Aussie Weiner’ on Google maps.

The Geelong Advertiser reported that the image became popular online after being shared on a Facebook group called Take The Piss Geelong, but that the local community had been aware of the unique graffiti for several months now.

The local publication also reminded us that this isn’t the first time that such large-scale drawings have been picked up by Google Maps in Australia. Late last year it caught a crude stick figure and far inferior penis on satellite cam in a paddock in Mount Duneed.

There has been no reports on who the perpetrator is this time around, but they’re probably damn proud of themselves.
