Hamilton, NZ – Given that New Zealand is a relatively industrialized and advanced culture, it is not necessary to exclude it from the happenings reported on D’D. So, it is with great pleasure that I report to you that the fine artwork of pranksters at Fairfield College in Hamilton, New Zealand – namely, the huge crop-circle-esque penises etched into the college lawns two years ago which were recently discovered to have been immortalized by Google Earth.
A New Zealand local, David McQuoid, discovered the images while scanning the neighbourhood online looking for a property.
“At first I thought it was a large piece of art work,” he said. Well… it is.
Acting principal Gerhard van Dyk (pronounced “dike” ya’ smartasses) is reported to have said that it was hard enough to deal with when the prank was pulled back in 2009. The artwork was done with vegitation killer. As such, it slowly and irreversibly revealed itself.
“There’s not really much we could do about it,” said van Dyk. “The caretaker took some more weedkiller and tried to camouflage it a bit.”
Nobody was caught so no discipline was ever meted out. After time, the memory of the huge penises faded. Until now… Principal van Dyk has said he would contact Google about the image in a bid to have it changed.
Also, since pranks are an accepted part of the UK and European academic cultures that New Zealand practices, it is not expected that – even in the event of a perpetrator being identified – that anyone will be facing felony charges or have their college degrees rescinded.
