If you’ve ever lurked around the Mildly Penis subreddit you’ve probably come across the Christian Science Society Church in Dixon, Illinois, because, well, it looks mildly like a d**k.
Last week the Christian Science Society Church was in the “news” (if that’s what you call stories about giant d**k churches) once again, this time because allegedly a water main had broken right on the corner of the street, making it look like, you know…

Not only did the New York Daily News call it a Photoshop job, some sad, pathetic truther went deep on proving that unless every single car happened to be in the same location during the water main break as they were when Google’s satellites passed by, this was a hoax.
