Stargate, genital jewelry or gaping orifice?

Chicago has the Bean. Montreal has a giant c**k ring? At least a few dozen social media users are seeing a resemblance between the sex toy and Montreal's forthcoming The Ring, a 50,000-pound stainless steel sculpture set to tower above downtown Montreal's Esplanade PVM and avenue McGill College.

But that's not all. Others have likened the sculpture to an intergalactic portal.

Still many more are echoing a refrain common whenever Montreal gets nice things: Why spend public money on this when you could spend money on road infrastructure?

But hey, at least we can giggle at the c**k ring jokes.

There were a few other sexual references too...

Other more innocent souls saw an onion ring.

Or could The Ring actually be Montreal's latest innovative transit solution?

Many (many, many, many) others are simply baffled anyone would spend money on art instead of asphalt.

The (c**k) Ring is supposed to be installed in June.
