Unfortunate Weather Graphic Shows Penis-Shaped Rain Band Over Essex
An unfortunate weather graphic has grabbed the attention of the online community - and not for the right reasons.
BBC Essex posted an image to its official Twitter account last night (28 August), ostensibly to warn residents to expect heavy rainfall.

However, a number of eagle-eyed followers were quick to outline that the graphic resembles a rather intimate part of the male anatomy.
Yes, the map appeared to imply a rain band shaped like a penis and testicles was set to cover a large area of the region and poke out towards the sea, with a particularly dense collection of clouds emanating from the tip.
No laughing please, we're all adults here... plus, there's no doubt this was nothing more than an innocent accident.
Nonetheless, since it was posted last night, the uncanny image has garnered 96,000 likes, 22,500 retweets and thousands of comments from people who couldn't help but crack a few jokes.
"Essex is seriously getting it tonight," quipped one Twitter user, while another commented: "Accompanied by a stiff breeze."
"As a resident of Southend on sea I think I'm somewhere between the shaft & the ballsack," wrote a third.
With 11,600 comments and counting, there's plenty more where that came from.
For more manhood mishaps, earlier this month a woman had people in stitches after posting what she thought was an innocent photo of some vegan sausages. Can you see where this is going?

The Australian shopper took a photo of the packet, but the sausages had slipped down and reshaped themselves inside the plastic packaging, giving them a wrinkled fleshy effect.
It didn't take long for a number of social media users to point out that they looked a tad... well, penis-y. Cue the jokes...
"Vegan sausages... that was not my first thought when I saw them," wrote one user, while another added: "They're willy nice."
A third remarked: "So you're telling me I could have gone to the supermarket instead of getting with my ex?"
All jokes aside, the UK is set for some average weather for the upcoming bank holiday following the weekend washout, reports The Sun.
Next Monday will see temperatures of around 19C in London and highs of 11C in parts of Scotland.
So not freezing, but certainly a contrast to last year's scorcher, which was the hottest on record.
Meteorologist Gregory Dewhurst said: "Temperatures over the last few weeks, especially at the beginning of August, were very high.
"We haven't seen temperatures this cool for quite a while."
