From: pete592The 'aerial photo' on the Des Moines Register site does, in fact, reveal a landmark whose shape will surely titillate purveyors of sophomoric toilet humor.

But in my opinion, what we see in Google Earth just doesn't amount to much. It's too bad actually. Has this place become overgrown with grass or something? Was the Register photo taken during construction?
From: AlanI don't get it. What, exactly, is interesting in this photo? And where is the "more info." link?

From: geeeniusClick on the "Learn more at dmregister" link. The picture does not show the actual "interesting" part very well.

From: Ravendark54Yeah this is one of those posts where the interesting spot is more clearly identified by the "more info" link.

From: AlanNo it doesn't; it looks more like a melting Oklahoma than a penis.

For those of us whose minds are not in the gutter, is there something interesting we're supposed to be seeing here? (I clicked on the link, but is just says Page not Found.)
From: Sub GirlDude, it totally looks like a penis. And a melting Oklahoma. You don't really have to have you mind in a gutter to see it.
