Bing’s Homepage Has A Hidden Penis For You To Find
Image Credit: Bing
I don’t use Bing, because the only people who use Bing are either those who use Microsoft Edge and haven’t yet bothered to change their defaults, or masochists. But those who do use Bing will know that the search engine features a nice photograph on its homepage, which Microsoft changes every day. Yesterday it was a lovely, scenic image of Brač Island in Croatia… along with a hidden, sandy penis.
Yep, Bing was proudly displaying an image of a penis on its homepage, with the photo featuring a phallus carved in the beach’s sand. It’s a bit difficult to spot in the full photo:
But when you zoom in on the image it becomes a little clearer…
…and there it is. A big ol’ penis, carved into the beach by some prankster who wanted to ruin this otherwise perfect snapshot for the Microsoft search engine.
Microsoft hasn’t commented on the penis, and really, who can blame them? Though it’s attracted a great deal of attention online, I think we’d all be surprised if a Fortune 500 company turned around and said: “Hey, guys, sorry about that sandy dick we exposed to you all. Here’s a penis-less photo of another beach instead.”
While it’s likely that Microsoft simply didn’t realize that the penis was tucked away in Bing’s homepage, it does at least give users a reason to visit the search engine over Google. It’s not really ideal that it’s to take part in a Where’s Waldo-esque penis-spotting game, but hey — traffic is traffic.
