I liked this so much...


...I had to steal it from Captain Haddock's site. It is, as you can see, a big cock drawn on the roof of a house somewhere in the Home Counties that is proudly visible on Google Earth.

Drawing cocks - often in unlikely places, or of unlikely dimensions - is an important part of the British character, and something at which we still excel. This genius begins early: what would a British school desk be without a cock and balls scratched onto it by a compass needle?

Well done to the anonymous artist in this case, and three cheers for our gallant, patriotic phallus graffiti-ers!

Update: I've just remembered that the phenomenon is documented by England's greatest 20th century poet, Larkin: who can forget the girl on the poster advertising the joys of
'Sunny Prestatyn', who, courtesy of graffiti, is set 'fairly astride/A tuberous cock and balls'?

It's a very unusual helicopter landing pad. Pilot shouldn't go too close the end. Might come off.
