It’ only been a few days since a pilot drew a penis in the sky in Florida, and another phallic phenomenon has already taken over the Internet.

The above screenshot of Network Ten anchor Natarsha Belling was posted to UNILAD’s Facebook page this past weekend, and it has since blown up and been shared on a number of different news sites around the world.

It was also trending on Facebook.

“Once you see it, you cannot unsee it…” UNILAD writes in the caption.

Unfortunate for her, but true. You will never not see a penis on Belling’s neckline.

No response yet from her on Twitter.

So far 2015 has been a good year for viral outfits. Which will you be wearing this Halloween? The white and gold dress, blue and black dress or penis jacket?

Thanks to some high winds and a shoddy construction job, a giant chunk of scaffolding came crashing down from a building this week in Portland, Oregon.

Onlookers watched and filmed in fascination as the debris teetered back and forth before eventually falling to the street.

No one was injured in the accident, but one car apparently took a lot of damage.

Fail of the Day: Only One Contestant Makes Final Jeopardy

Thursday night’s Jeopardy was just plain sad.

Two of the contestants, Brad & Stephanie, ended the game with negative scores, leaving only 34-year-old Kristin Sausville to play Final Jeopardy.

“This was not one of our greatest days,” said Alex Trebek at the end of Double Jeopardy.

Brad and Stephanie had -$200 and -$6,800 each before they were whisked off stage in shame.

The only thing worse would have been if Kristin wagered it all and ended up in red as well.

Kristin’s husband has also been on the show in the past, and coincidentally, this same thing happened to one of his competitors, according to People Magazine.

The best thing to come out of this? Poor Stephanie’s face.

Oh my god… Chewy!

This girl was just filming herself (vertically… ugh) practicing some yoga moves when her little dog wandered into the shot.

Then BOOM, Chewy gets lauched into space before transitioning into downward dog.

Looks like he was just a little shaken up but otherwise seems to be ok.

Fail of the Day: Krispy Kreme Promotes ‘KKK Wednesday’ on Facebook

Do you enjoy your donuts with a nice cold glass of white power?

Krispy Kreme in the UK posted a very unfortunate promotional image on their Facebook page this week, which has since been taken down.

Alongside some less controversial activities like “Funday Monday,” “Balloon Madness” and “Face Painting Thursday” sits “KKK Wednesday.”

The event is scheduled for February 18, and runs from 12pm-5pm, so 5 hours of hate-filled donut revelry!

“KKK” is actually intended to stand for “Krispy Kreme Klub,” but to most people this connotes white hoods and cross burning.

The company has apologized for the mishap in a statement.

Krispy Kreme apologises unreservedly for the inappropriate name of a customer promotion at one of our stores. We are truly sorry for any offence this completely unintentional oversight may have caused. All material, both online and in the store, has been withdrawn and steps are being taken to ensure that greater precautions are taken with publicity materials in the future.

They add that the event was designed to attract customers into the shop to decorate doughnuts using their Krispy Kreation Station product and not as a casual Ku Klux Klan meetup with glazed refreshments.

Oops of the Day: Arizona Congressman Mistakes Boko Haram with Boca Raton

One ruthlessly kills thousands of people and the other is nice place to relax in the sun.

In an interview last week with CNN, U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar, R-Ariz. mistakenly referred to Boko Haram, the Islamist terrorist organization in Nigeria, as “Boca Raton,” the city in Florida.

They were discussing the issue of paying ransom to terrorists for kidnapping victims.

“Once you start doing that, then everybody, every American citizen traveling abroad becomes a subject in regard for kidnapping and then the plight of how much money has been captivated in the Boca Raton group,” Gosar said.

The mayor of the city in Florida, Susan Haynie, laughed at the mistake.

“While I’m pleased that the congressman from Arizona would have the name of Boca Raton on his lips, I am disappointed that he would confuse our vibrant, beautiful city with a movement promoting Islamist insurgency in Nigeria,” she said.

It was a simple slip of the tongue. Just don’t make the same one when planning your spring break this year.
