IKEA's Swedish Sausage Mystery

In 2006, IKEA found itself in a bit of a pickle over a certain greyhound featured in its annual catalog (which goes to 175 million people). At issue: The dog's leg. Or what some customers and bloggers suspected to be ... an image of a human penis. Did some disgruntled employee have a little fun with PhotoShop? IKEA reps were emphatic that the dog's leg just had an "unfortunate resemblance" to a penis. So which is it? You be the judge: The NSFW version is here.
