    Got to admit, its a really well done image !

    On the opposing side though (as a keen archaeologist and worshipper of all things historical), I can kind of see why some might complain. Its a little bit *too* close to the giant. Would be the same with any monument, I doubt too many would be impressed if I created a mimic stonehenge made of toilet rolls right next to the real stonehenge, or if I made a mimic sphinx next to the real sphinx made out of empty crisp packets.

    Brilliantly well done though.

    I thought they already had! (Got a sense of humour I mean, not performed "rain magic" - although...)

    Can't wait for the "magic rain". Is that the same or different to all the other rain we've been having?

    Strangely I was thinking "HAROLD!" anyhoo................

    Would be nice to go see it at the weekend, but i'm guessing it'll be just a white mush of paint or gone by then

    Mind you, a Loo-roll henge sounds pretty impressive, gotta make sure it's recycled and biodegradeable roll though!!!!

    What other land marks can we recreate!!!???

    Re: Giant Homer Simpson in Dorset

    I find it offensive and funny at the same time. With it being made with biodegradable paint I find it more on the funny side as it’s a short term pic. If it was for a longer amount of time with none biodegradable paint it would be a lot more offensive.
