Most Hilarious Skyscraper

I saw this building in hong kong a few months ago, and i just had to take a picture, it just proves the fact that they dont hav much room in hong kong, but still it just looks so funny.
Has anyone seen anything funnier than this?

This is the most slender tower I`ve ever seenthis one in Hong Kong. Ugly as The Elephant Tower in Bankok. Still more to come....

What's hillarious about that? That's pretty norm for HK. We have limited and expensive land so alot of scrapers are built slim.

I find this more hillarious

In a way yes though the city has some impressive scrapers as well. Though I hated the Baiyoke II.

The 2nd one if you look at it in real life is really thin, like a pencil.
