China’s latest pork-barrel prestige project will reportedly take the form of a giant ring, but so pointless is the project that it soon found itself the butt of mass Photoshop mockery.

Liaoning province’s 157m tall ring will consume 3000 tons of steel in its construction, and use 12,000 LEDs and an undisclosed amount of electricity in its nocturnal illuminations, but otherwise serves no particular purpose.

Plans to allow bungee jumping off it were abandoned as it was decided it was too dangerous even for China.

Amongst Chinese online the sheer pointlessness of the structure has stirred some speculation about possible uses:
