    I won't link to the original because the picture might offend audiences in the US (although its conisdered appropriate to post on the BBC in the UK), but its worth checking out the BBC news page and searching for it. Funny, funny stuff!

  2. If I wasn't in class I'd be rolling on the floor now. :D
  3. Life-size? :eek:

    Whatever it was, it made him mad enough to paint a 60ft member on their rooftop. What kid would not want to do that to their school or something?

    I was searching for the story on the BBC website when I came across this gem which I find hilarious:

    Student is fined for snow phallus
    A student who built a 4ft (1.219 metres) phallus out of snow in a park was given a fixed penalty fine of £80.

    John Knowles, 18, a history student at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, created the snow sculpture on Parker's Piece near the Parkside police station.

    Mr Knowles was told that he had caused public offence for the "intricate" creation in a "prominent position".

    A police spokeswoman said: "The officer took the view that it could cause offence and issued a fine."

  12. Personally, I would NOT do this in anger, but out of love. :)

    If they really wanted to punish him, they'd make him pay the repair bills on those things.

    Here at TB we have a NSFW rule that disallows an image of a phallus to be posted in the forums.

    LOL. Now that's funny. As a police officer working in a town with two colleges, we get frequent calls during the winter from stodgy old ladies upset that some college house or other has an anatomically correct snowman in the yard.
