Lucky couple thank golden penis-shaped god for whopping £560,000 lottery win

A lucky couple have thanked a golden penis-shaped mythical god for their whopping lottery win.

Restaurant owner Udom Kanmuang and his wife Noi pocketed 24million baht (£558,000) in the lottery draw in Thailand on May 16.

According to The Thaiger, the couple believes their win came as a result of daily prayers to Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat, a figure in Thai folklore.

Noi would apparently pray to a statue of Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat in the pond at their restaurant every morning at 11am.

Udom and Noi hosted a grand ceremony dedicated to Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat following their win, with employees from the restaurant and local villagers invited.

An image has now emerged showing the newly-rich couple posing with the statue – which is undeniably phallic.

The two bulges at the bottom of the golden shaft are a particularly interesting touch, although if yours looks exactly like that you should probably visit a doctor.

Udom and Noi also hired 50 dancers to perform around the statue and placed three boxes of offerings down for Por Pu Sian Anan Nakarat.

Their prayers had brought them minor lottery wins before but nothing as big as the May 16 scoop.

It came as Udom was convinced his luck was out. Just days before he had lost his bid to become an MP representing the Pheu Thai Party.

After the lottery win he wrote on Facebook: "Consolation prize after losing the election! This cheers me up!"

He told ThaiRath he had been buying lottery tickets using the same numbers since April after he became a parliamentary candidate.
