The Chaser: Who Put The Di** in Dixon?

     Well folks, Christmas is a little less than two months away now. Time for wearing red and green, putting the tree up, spending time with friends and family. It’s a time for ornaments, egg nog, exchanging presents and bringing good cheer. To that end, some of the more “twisted” among us will even be digging out the Red Peters and Rodney Carrington “Twisted Christmas” tunes. Before we let Rodney ask, “Who Put The Di** on The Snowman” however, some of us, including the folks at Gawker (1) and the Huffington Post, (2) find ourselves wondering; who exactly put the di** in Dixon, Illinois?

     It seems that the Christian Science Society in Dixon, Illinois, has commissioned the building of a new meeting hall at the corner of West 2nd Street and Highland Avenue. The building, a new addition to the neighborhood, is almost complete. From the ground, it appears to be a rather nicely designed building; modern and airy in appearance, with plenty of windows to allow light to flood the interiors;

     Now, before I go any farther, one should notice the second line of the motto in the picture, and keep that in mind when considering the following view…on a south-north map orientation…of the same building…from space:

     Um, I’m not sure if the folks in the Christian Science Society of Dixon knew that their brand new edifice looked, shall we say, phallic from the “God’s eye view,” but hopefully, they do now. I don’t know, maybe the construction company got -stiffed- on the job, so they decided to have a little fun with the blueprints. Qui sait?
