Ding dong…

Who’s there…

Bing dong!

What’s that you ask?

The background image on Bing’s homepage which shows a penis carved into the beach.

Penis Carved Into Photo on Bing

Maybe this was an old image from their homepage image contest that someone from their dev team put up without paying much attention.

Or perhaps some smart marketer for Microsoft is hoping to increase Bing’s search share.

In either case, it’s refreshing to see MSFT & Bing with a funny image slip as opposed to Google and Street View.

You can join the conversation on Reddit. I’m sure #bingdong or some variation with be trending on Twitter soon enough.

UPDATE: Looks like Bing finally scrubbed the image clean – if you go to their homepage you now see an innocent beach.
