Funny skyscrapers

There are threads for ugly skyscrapers, beautiful skyscrapers, overrated skyscrapers underrated skyscrapers and many many more, but so far I haven't seen here a thread for funny skyscrapers. Some tall buildings do appear to be humorous, some even hilarious so this is the place to post them. Let's have a good laugh

The first skyscraper I will post here was never built, though the moment I saw it I had to laugh. It does speak a lot about the time in which it was designed and it certainly wasn't meant to be funny, but by nowadays standards it certainly is a funny skyscraper

The Palace of the Soviets:

The Basket Building

The Longaberger Company, based in the Ohio town of Newark in the US, makes traditional woven baskets. So there was only one thing their new HQ could look like
