‘Penisberg’: Phallic tower of ice pictured off Newfoundland (PHOTO)
Jamie Ellison, a horticultural instructor based in Nova Scotia, discovered the curiously phallic shaped tower of ice during a visit to Griquet, Newfoundland.
He told RT.com that the image was taken on July 7, while he was touring the area with local tour guide Todd Boland.
The iceberg has since caught the attention of many people and publications online.

“I’m in awe at the speed of how information travels and that humans seem curious about our anatomical representations in nature,” Ellison told RT.com.
Asked about names being given to his bizarre discovery, Ellison said he had heard a number of suggestions.
“Yes the berg has got a few different names, including the #hammerofthegods,” he said.
