Rory McInnes did some of his own decorating at his family home... by painting a 60ft penis on the roof of his parents house. His parents Andy and Clare were delighted a year ago when builders finished a new roof on their $2 million house, but Rory, 18, had just watched a documentary about Google Earth — which lets internet users view satellite pictures — and decided to make the property stand out.
He grabbed a can of white paint and climbed up to the roof, where he spent half an hour painting the giant fallus on the roof of his parents home. For the next year only Rory knew about the giant manhood on the roof near Hungerford, Berks, but his secret was blown when a helicopter pilot spotted it, and hovered so his passenger could take photos.
Andy, the father of the trouble-maker, thought it was a joke when British newspaper The Sun contacted him about the painting. He responded with: “It’s an April Fool’s joke, right? There’s no way there’s a 60ft phallus on top of my house.” He then spoke to all four of his kids demanding answers, and when he phoned Rory — who was traveling in Brazil — he burst out laughing, saying: “Oh, you’ve found it then!”
This picture of a giant fallus is regarded as a massive fertility symbol, and couples often have sex near pictures of this giant appendage in the hope of conceiving. Rory’s mother Clare said: “We don’t want any more children, so the idea of sleeping under a giant fertility symbol is rather worrying.” Rory's father also commented that: “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.”
