Planned World Cup stadium looks like giant vagina

It’s a case of good intentions gone wrong.

Qatar is hosting soccer’s World Cup in 2022. It gets hot in Qatar, with daytime highs during the summer hovering around 40C. Something has to be done about all that oppressive heat during the competition.

Architects were tabbed with designing a stadium to stay cool with air conditioning. They unveiled plans for Al-Wakrah Stadium, which will allow sunlight through a gaping hole at the top.

Unfortunately, the design — which is supposed to resemble the sails of a dhow boat used for pearl fishing by Qataris — comes across as a woman’s vagina.

“Al-Wakrah is the first of six stadiums already in the latter stages of the design process, our committee has issued 10 major tenders to the market encompassing project and design managers and stadium-operation consultants,” said Hassan al-Thawadi, the general secretary of Qatar’s 2022 committee.

    It is a great design. It may resemble a vagina from an aerial view, but how many people are going to look down on it from high in the sky

    Depends on what way you look at it……horizontal = looks like a mouth and vertically = resembles a vagina. Either way, the field looks great to play some football.

    Allah sees everything, including this abomination.
