Google satellite captures 'pe**s prank' pics at Hamilton high school!

June 8, 2011 - Wellington

Google satellite has captured the aerial view of a pe**s prank at a Hamilton high school, which has been seen by millions around the world on the Internet map.

The satellite picture, taken in May 2009, had shown six phallic shapes etched into the grass at Fairfield College, with two by the car park particularly gigantic.

David McQuoid was searching for a property when he came across the surprising snaps.

"At first I thought it was a large piece of art work," quoted McQuoid as saying.

The principal of Fairfield College, Gerhard van Dyk said that the caretaker became aware of some of the grass dying, as the x-rated crop circles popped up around the school.

"There's not really much we could do about it. The caretaker took some more weedkiller and tried to camouflage it a bit," Van Dyk said.

The rest of the grass was killed, but it was a few months before the rude renderings disappeared. But by then an eye in the sky had snapped these images, which the Times had chosen to cover.

Van Dyk has said that he would contact Google.

However, a spokesperson for the Internet giant said that the Earth images came directly from satellite pictures, unlike the Google Street View shots, which could be blurred for privacy reasons.
