Ah, youth:

Teenager Rory McInnes painted a giant phallus on the roof of his parents’ West Berkshire mansion, apparently after watching a programme about Google Earth….

It is not the first time the stunt has been tried. In 2006 the Sun reported that “pranksters drew a willy on the roof of a top school” in Teesside that went ­unnoticed until it appeared on Google Earth.

Similarly for the benefit of Google Earth, pupils drew a 6m penis in weedkiller on school playing fields in Southampton in 2007.

Dad’s reply when contacted by a newspaper: “It’s an April Fool’s joke, right? There’s no way there’s a 60ft phallus on top of my house.”
