Having a glance at Becky’s LJ (via John’s) today, I saw a link to a report from the Guardian: Schoolyard penis seen from space. Their picture is a little fuzzy so I took another from MS Live Maps:

Two pupils who drew a giant penis on a school lawn using weed killer two years ago can still admire their work from satellite photos now posted on the internet.

Despite the school re-seeding the area, the penis has turned up on satellite image search engines because a photo was taken before the new grass could conceal the appendage.

The unnamed pair of year 11 pupils from Bellemoor school for boys in Southampton, burned the 6-metre (20ft) phallus into the grass as an end of term joke.

How awesome is that?! Shows the waste of taxpayers’ money but… HOW AWESOME!? Those kids must be so impressed =)
