El Reg nails rooftop 60-ft todger outrage mansion

Berkshire phallus eludes Google Earth

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

There was much merriment yesterday at the news that an 18-year-old wag had painted a 60-ft phallus on the roof of his parents' £1m Berkshire mansion - an outrage which escaped mum and dad's notice for a year:

The BBC reported that the young man was away travelling, and would "have to scrub it off when he gets back".

Well, the Beeb was keeping schtum on the exact location of the defaced domicile, but after a bit of sniffing about we tracked it down to the village of Inkpen Common, as you can see here (.kmz format) or here on Google Maps:

Sadly, it's evident we'll have to wait a while before Google Earth gets up to speed on this particular todger tomfoolery. Regular readers will recall that it has in the past featured the Pennsylvania wedding tackle shocker, the Caledonian fuck you, the farmer's huge arse, the 40-metre Yorkshire profanity and the fat Russian cock. ®
