Schoolyard Penis Seen From Space

Intriguing headline. Not exactly what I thought (and I'm glad about that) when I read it, but it's a cool story anyway.

From News:

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.

The satellite image of a penis on the lawn of
Bellemoor school in Southampton.
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.

Staff, parents and pupils who log on can now see the image in all its glory.

A spokeswoman for the school said: "It was just one of those high school jinks.

"This was an act of vandalism that took place during the summer of 2005. Southampton city council re-seeded the area and the grass was re-grown by the beginning of the new school term."

Now that's a prank! Only six metres? I'd have gone much larger, but I'm very insecure...
