Homer and the Giant

BBC News: Wish for rain to wash away Homer.

Pagans have pledged to perform "rain magic" to wash away a cartoon character painted next to their famous fertility symbol - the Cerne Abbas giant.  A doughnut-brandishing Homer Simpson was painted next to the giant on the hill above Cerne Abbas, Dorset, to promote the new Simpsons film.  Many believe the ancient chalk outline of the naked, sexually aroused giant to be a symbol of ancient spirituality.  Many couples also believe the 180ft carving aids fertility.  The painted Simpsons character has been painted with water-based biodegradable paint which will wash away as soon as it rains.

There's an aerial picture of the Cerne Giant and his new companion on the BBC article.
