And the World Wide Web…

Once the internet has spotted something amusing, the internet will never let it go. And the World Wide Web is also full of eagle-eyed people with a lot of time on their hands – like those who tuned in to Australia's Channel Nine this week to find newsreader Samantha Heathwood donning a particularly memorable outfit.

If you look closely, you can see the shape of her jacket collar makes out a recognisable form. That's right, it looks like a penis and a pair of bollocks, which is, of course, nothing short of absolutely hilarious for anyone who's got the mental age of a 10-year-old (so all of us, then).

If your mind really as immature as everyone else's, all you have to do is follow the outline of Heathwood's unfortunately-shaped collar to spot the phallus.

And the placement of her top underneath isn't exactly helping, either. Nor is the zip underneath that… No, YOU have a filthy mind.

Viewers immediately took to social media to point out the interesting wardrobe choice – with many dubbing the garment the 'penis jacket', while others said it was a bit of a 'dick move' by Channel Nine to make Heathwood wear it.

One person wrote: “I know I'm immature but this cracks me up.”

Another added: “Literally cannot unsee it now.”

Mind you, not everyone had bad things to say about the jacket – some were able to actually rise above the sniggering, with one writing: “You people are so catty, so what, it looks good on her!”

I mean, it does. But it still looks like a penis.

And, believe it or not, this wasn't the jacket's first rodeo on live TV.

A similar photo of the jacket also did the rounds on social media a few years back, when another newsreader called Natarsa Belling was seen wearing it on 10 News.

Commenting on a 'who wore it better?'-style photo, one person wrote: “Who thought that was a great idea? The first time!”

Another person said: “This is priceless.”

A third wrote: “#penisjacket lives on!!!! I still find this hilarious!”

Someone else added: “Woah that's even worse than before… this time spillage.”

Wow, yup, that last person went there.
