Is it just us, or are we getting an awful lot of penis stories lately?

A job applicant in Illinois ruined his chances of landing the role after sending nude photos to the company's female HR officer.

The 23-year-old man, who had been offered "conditional offer of employment" by the unnamed company, but decided it would be a good idea to send photos of his junk to the female employee just a few days later. 

Amazingly, he sent a second nude snap the following day, after he received no reply to his first message. He then tried to call the number, but to no avail. It wasn't long before the HR officer put two and two together and found like link between the number attached to the images and her employee list.

Needless to say, his contract offer was rescinded, and the police were called, although the company has chosen not to pursue any legal action.

According the the Chicago Tribune, the police say that the man claims to have sent the photos by accident, which might explain why he tried calling the number. Although, can you really mistakenly sent naked photos twice? We're not sure, so the best bet is to act like a decent member of society and keep your private parts, y'know, private.
