If you're unaware, Bing is Microsoft's search engine. And while it's nowhere near beating Google, it's still believed to be the third most used search engine, after Yahoo. Every day, Bing features an image from somewhere in the world on its homepage. Today, it's a beach. But one Twitter user has spotted something off about it...
Spot it? Unless you're eagle-eyed, probably not. Let's zoom in...
Yeah, that definitely appears to be a penis someone carved into the sand. As of writing, the image is still up, so you can even go and check for yourself.
Bing even tweeted the image...
And yes, people noticed on there, too.
Reddit user velocipenis appears to have been the first to spot the phallic object, and given his username, we're not surprised. Commenters obviously found the whole thing hilarious. And some of the responses are just plain savage...
Hopefully this doesn't get fixed soon. It's hilarious and will probably help people actually go out and use the search engine instead of Google, which is the de facto favorite. Actually, I wouldn't even be surprised if this was part of a marketing campaign on Bing's account. It'd probably help drive traffic to their homepage every once in a while if they started putting up hidden NSFW "gems" with the images that they select. It could be naughty words, or extremely suggestive photos. The best part is that they could claim ignore of it every time, or just put it back on other people for having "dirty minds".
"Why'd you spot that in the first place? Were you looking for it? We didn't notice it."
Yeah, that's the approach I would use. Bing has total plausible deniability.
Update: Bing has since edited the photo to remove the penis.
