When news went round last year that a house in Swansea looked like Hitler, there were many people who doubted it – until they saw the photograph. After that it was found that any number of cats, and even a goldfish, looked like the unlamented Führer. So the idea that a church might accidentally look like a chicken could not be ruled out a priori. Yet it still seemed unlikely until photographic evidence was provided: the Church by the Sea at Tampa, Florida, not only resembles a chicken, but a chicken with attitude.
These unintended lookalikes are a welcome change from the City skyscrapers given nicknames because of their contrived shapes: the Cheesegrater, the Helter-Skelter, the Walkie-Talkie. Those are as unsatisfactorily inauthentic as chicken nuggets made in the shape of dinosaurs.
这些不经意的发现的确给拥有大量摩天大楼的都市带来了别样的风情，由于其人为的造型，所以人们给它取了些绰号：the Cheesegrater（奶酪摩擦机）, the Helter-Skelter（狼狈，慌张）, the Walkie-Talkie（搬弄是非的鸡）。这些绰号都是不真实的，因为这些鸡块以恐龙的形态出现。
