If someone in Beijing directs you to the 'Big Penis', they aren't pointing you to some den of iniquity but rather the direction of the new 150-metre-high People's Daily newspaper building. Social media is abuzz with talk of the building, with hugchina.com saying it is a "yin and yang" match to the China Central Television building (CCTV) which is nicknamed 'Big Underpants'.

It says: "Previously the candidate names for the new building included electric iron..., penguin, and stinkpot. But now after more pictures of the building circulated on the internet, it seems the name big penis gains common consensus among Chinese online population."
