GOOGLE EARTH: 60ft penis painted on roof

Teenager Rory McInnes painted a 60ft penis on the roof of his parent’s home after watching a documentary on Google Earth. The lad, currently on his gap year, painted the giant phallus in 2008, but it wasn’t discovered until a year later when a helicopter pilot spotted it and allowed his passengers to take photos. According to the ‘Daily Mail‘, the boy’s dad didn’t believe it when he was first told: “It’s an April Fool’s joke, right? There’s no way there’s a 60ft phallus on top of my house.” But after ringing around each of his four children, Rory owned up to the painting, reportedly saying: “Oh, you’ve found it then!”
