YO Philly!



Philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, the city known for its rowdy sports fans who throw snowballs at Santa and let their toddlers down a cold one during a Phillies game.

Is it any wonder that in a classy city like this, a statue of the State’s founding father can be found standing proudly atop City Hall exposing his manhood for all the world to see as if ready to send golden showers down upon the residents of this fine town?


Is That Penn’s Penis?
It’s hard to know how to handle this topic delicately, but so many people have remarked on this curiosity that it’s hard to avoid the subject. It concerns the massive statue of William Penn on top of Philadelphia’s City Hall. No other statue on a public building can match this 37-foot-high bronze for sheer size. And so the question leaps to the minds of anyone who looks at it as they drive down from Fairmount Park and the Art Gallery...did anyone realize how it would look from this angle?

Weird US
Only in Philadelphia, right?

Of course, that’s only the beginning of this story; if one takes a walk around City Hall, the story gets more interesting when we see what Billy Penn’s junk is aimed at:

In the interests of research, Weird Pennsylvania took a stroll beside City Hall to see where the statue appears to be aiming. The result raised more questions than answers. From an unscientific analysis of direction, distance, and angle, the intended target would appear to be the historic Masonic Temple and Methodist Episcopal buildings.


It makes one wonder what it was that the Mason’s could have done that would have riled the ire of this man of peace and made him pissed enough to… well, piss on the grand Masonic Lodge in his hometown.

Penn’s Urinal?
What makes this mystery even more puzzling is the fact that William Penn was, himself a Freemason:

This Frame of Government, with some emendations and omissions, was adopted by an assembly representing the freemen of Pennsylvania in 1682. This First Frame was revised in the Second Frame in 1683 and by the Charter of Privileges of 1702 which became the fundamental law of the province. This fundamental law was based on the consent of the governed; that authority should be vested in the law, not man. This code in it's final form was mild and humane for the age. Prisons were converted into work houses and reformatories and prisoners were not forced to pay fees or provide their own support. All law-abiding persons who "acknowledged one Almighty and eternal God to be the Creator, Upholder, and Ruler of the World" were to be free to worship God in the manner of their choice.

The colonial charters, the immediate antecedents of the American state and federal constitutions, are therefore traceable to two major sources; charters of incorporation, such as the joint stock trading companies; and the doctrine of fundamental law and rights. These principles are fundamental in Masonry and Penn, since he was a Mason, may have drawn his ideas, as well as those of representation and religious toleration for those who believed in God, from this source but there is no proof that he did.

Masonry in History

Could it be that William Penn felt betrayed by the Mason’s somehow? Was he disappointed with the violent results of the Masonically inspired French Revolution? Maybe it’s to show what he thinks about what has become of the United States, the 1st country founded upon Masonic principals.

Of course it’s entirely possible that Penn didn’t have any problems with the Mason’s at all; it could have been the sculptor of the statue who had a beef with the Masons. Alexander Milne Calder was the son of a tombstone carver and was a sculptor throughout his lifetime, however I can find no mention of him or any of his family members ever being members of the Freemason order. Perhaps he was jealous at being spurned by the Freemasons and designed the statue to show his outrage.

Then again, ‘ole Billy Penn is getting up there in years, maybe he doesn’t even have the stream strength to reach across the street anymore.


City Hall may just seem like a dingy monolith that's very gradually sprucing up--minus, that is, the pervasive smell of urine. Or it may just seem like just a huge annoying rock to drive around. But hear this: Philadelphia City Hall is the largest functioning municipal building in the country. On the 10-year-old free tour program, tourists, elementary school students and even some bored Philadelphians have enjoyed breathtaking views of the city. From the observation deck you may feel like you're about to be peed on by William Penn (maybe that's the origin of that smell?)

BTW: for all of you out there with your fingers poised over the “alert” button ready to report FortAnthem for posting pornographic pics of a state founder, here’s what the statue looks like from the front:

IT’S NOT HIS JUNK!!




It’s just an optical illusion that makes it look like that from a certain angle. According to some, that’s his hand sticking out at waist level, others say it’s a pair of gloves or a treaty he signed with the Indians. My eyes aren’t sharp enough to tell what it is exactly from ground level and I’m not about to go climbing up there to find out either.

You are so mischievous, do you know that? Either that, or you are all out of bubble gum.

I think this silhouette is happenstance.

if you had a sense of humor, and were famous enough to have a statue built in your honor, wouldn't you think it hilarious to do it this way? It's Mel Brooks humor all the way. Intentional or not, it's genius. thanks for bringing this out.

I have to agree. The subtlety(sp?) in the way this was done is fantastically hilarious. There is no way, in my mind, that the silhouette casted by this statue could have been unknown to the sculptors. Its very funny.

Do you have any theories why he might be pointed in that direction? Do you think it has something to do with Billy Penn or the sculptor?

is there a statue of a hot lady anywhere in that direction?


I have no idea to be honest. I do believe that a lot of these things are done for a specific purpose. History surely has the answer, we just have to look into the deep cuts. I hope your thread gets more attention. It was very well put together.

None that I know of but that's as plausible an explanation as any I guess.

Me, personally, I think it was the sculptor who designed it that way. By his time masonry had become a fraternity of businessmen and a social lodge with no connections to its stone carving roots. Being the son of a headstone maker and a sculptor himself, he may have been upset at the direction Masonry had gone.

Aside from a few ornamentals and symbols, I doubt that any Masons today really know anything about the stone-carving trade, much less have actually taken a chisel to a piece of stone in their lives.

Thanks for the compliment.


This is the thing that drives me nuts about ATS sometimes; I work hard to put together a thread like this and it gets little attention. Other times when I do drive-by threads, just posting a news story with a little commentary, and it gets 10 times more attention. Sometimes I wonder why I bother to put any work into my threads anymore.

Probably because it does not appeal to the least common denominator. You should have titled it "Freemason 'points' the way to Argatha entrance", or some such nonesense.

Hmmmn, you aren't telling us that this is another one of those wacky Freemason hand signs used to identify each other and pass on secret information are you?

Maybe the way the junk points is a secret Masonic sign indicating where the nearest lodge is or where secret information is hidden. I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Masons had it set up so that if one stands in front of the urinals in most buildings, that person would also be facing in the direction of the nearest lodge. Or maybe its only certain urinals with some secret Masonic symbols on them?

I'll be watching for this one to show up in the next Nick Cage movie.


BTW, don't Masons have some pretty strict rules about divulging their secret signs and signals? It has something to do with cutting the throat and disemboweling if my memory serves correctly.

You better hope your fellow Masons don't find out that you let this one slip out.

Uh-oh!

We haven't heard from AM for two days now.


I hope his Mason buddies didn't hack him up for letting that secret sign out.

nobody would want his entrails. They are probably pickled.

He is probably just sitting back, wishing he knew what good sweet tea tasted like.

You don't just hack at AM, you have to first slowly marinate him first.

good lord, he's been marinating for years now. He should be able to be cut with a fork.

I found the connection, this clearly proves that there is a giant masonic conspiracy in the world.

If you follow his penis, you will come to a place called A Pea In the Pod‎! This is obviously free-masonic satanic humor.
