A STUDENT has some scrubbing to do after his parents discovered he'd painted an 18m-long penis on their roof to get his home noticed on Google Earth.

Rory McInnes, 18, decided to make his family home stand out after watching a documentary about Google Earth.

Armed with a tin of white paint, he climbed on top of the $2 million home in Berkshire, south east England, and set to work.

His artwork remained unnoticed for 12 months until a helicopter pilot spotted it and swooped down low so his passengers could take photos.

Dad Andy thought it was a prank call when a British newspaper contacted him about the painting this week.

"It's an April Fool's joke, right? There's no way there's a 60ft phallus on top of my house,'' Mr McInnes told The Sun.

He confronted his four children, finding his answers when he reached Rory over the phone in Brazil.

Part-way through gap-year travels, Rory could not hold back his laughter as he confessed: "Oh, so you've found it then.''

The image has been compared to the Cerne Abbas Giant, a 55m-high naked figure carved into the hill at Dorset which is said to attract couples seeking to have children.

Mum Clare said: "We don't want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying.''

Mr McInnes added: "We don't want to lie in bed at night and hear couples at it above us.

"When Rory gets home he will be given a scrubbing brush and white spirit and he can go and scrub it off.''

Wonder what would have happened if he'd just painted a great big circle with a large H in the middle on the roof...

Just bet he's grounded...forever. The neighbors just have - - - - - envy since they don't have one painted on their roof.

It sounds like the parents are having a good go at teaching him not to do it by embarrassing him. I think that he should go on the flat roof with grey paint and just do the whole roof, which would paint it out.

This is better than trying to remove the paint with white spirit.

I think that a better joke was the time that some locals got some blue sheeting and they laid it over Cerne Abbas giant (or some similar nude man) to make it look like he was wearing a pair of jeans. I think it happened some time in the last 10 years.

This story reminds me of the scene in "Superbad" in which that fat boy would secretly drawing large hair penises in elementary school.

I was thinking the same thing...

But it must be hard to get everything in proportion when you're painting something that big. :lol:

Penile painting topic

Scary height for drawing. If he had slipped, it would not have been the first prick to fall off. :P
