60 foot phallus

This 60 foot phallus story. It's just wonderful. Inspired by Google Earth a teenager decided to paint something on hte roof of the family home something that could be seen from the air. His choice of subject was that 60 foot pahllus. Yes, I know, teenagers are ever fond of the willy joke. Erm, in fact given that all men remain teenagers at heart we've all been chortling over this 60 foot phallus.

A man in the British town of Hungerford says he and his wife were unaware their teenage son had painted a 60-foot phallus on their home's roof.

Andy McInnes, 54, said the first time he learned of the phallus adorning the roof of his home for the last year was when members of the media asked him to comment on the artwork spotted by a helicopter pilot, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday.

It's an April Fool's joke, right? There's no way there's a 60-foot phallus on top of my house, McInnes said

The story of the 60 foot phallus continues:

McInnes said after questioning his four children about the roof painting, he learned his 18-year-old son, Rory, had created the artwork a year ago.

The Telegraph said the teen, who is currently in Brazil, was inspired to paint the phallus after viewing a TV special on the Google Earth program that allows online visitors to view satellite images of their homes.

"When Rory gets home he will be given a scrubbing brush and white spirit and he can go and scrub it off," McInnes said of the punishment awaiting his son.
