180 Foot Tall Homer Simpson

To promote The Simpsons Movie, a 180 foot tall Homer Simpson was painted next to the Cerne Abbas giant in Dorset, England, using a water-based biodegradable paint that will wash away with the first rain.

Despite the painting's extremely temporary nature, the humorless Pagan Federation was not amused, and vowed to wash it away with "rain magic."

Wow. You've got to love organizations that are self-satirizing.

The Pagan Federation's complaint that the painting of Homer is "very disrespectful and not at all aesthetically pleasing" was met with a typical internet response. (The animated gif is hilarious, but it didn't animate when I posted it here, so you'll have to follow the link to see it for yourself).
