Giant Painting on Roof Points to Peen-Teen Prank

March 26, 2009

(Chattahbox) — Home improvement shows are hugely popular on TV today, but Rory McInnes, 18, may have taken the desire for distinction just a little too far, according the the Daily Telegraph. Inspired while watching a show about Google Earth and armed with a brush, a tin of white paint and, no doubt a malevolent grin the British student and evident geek proceeded to embellish the roof of his parent’s luxurious home in the cloistered seclusion of south-western Berkshire with an eye-catching sketch of a 60ft phallus.

For an entire year it stayed there unseen, seeding the skies like a R-rated crop circle. Parents, Andy and Claire only learned of their son’s diabolical deed when a national newspaper called them one day to confirm a report by a pilot who had been somewhat surprised by their choice of d├ęcor. Barry, 54, thought the call was a joke. “It’s an April Fool’s joke, right? There’s no way there’s a 60ft phallus on top of my house.” he told the reporters. But to his chagrin, the story was true.

The parents quizzed each of their children to discover the culprit, and three of the four were clear of all blame. But when Mr. McInnes called Rory, currently safe in Brazil on a gap-year excursion, the adult-themed artist finally came clean. “Oh, you’ve found it then?” was his only reply.

In a display of Herculean restraint to which only the Brits could ever aspire, the parents have decided to take their son’s prank in good measure. But once his tour is completed, they assured the reporters he’ll be made to atone. “When Rory gets home he will be given a scrubbing brush and white spirit and he’ll go and scrub it off.”
