This is Rich

A 180 foot image of Homer Simpson has been painted into the hillside, next to the famous fertility symbol - the Cerne Abbas giant - in Dorset. Pagans are not happy with the new addition to the hillside, and plan some 'rain magic' to get it washed away.
Ooooh, not the dreaded "Rain Magic" are they going to drink tons of water and pee on the other guys field? Warning, pagans, that'll only make the plants grow faster.

Biby -

Well, welcome from Kerala, India. I encourage readers to click on your profile and follow you to your nice travel blog.

I have a sort of connection to Kerala in that I studied the region as part of an economic development class in pursuit of my bachelors degree in economics. The professor of the class had been at the World Bank and headed the team that implemented "sustainable development" there.

I think things have paid off for Kerala.

If I am not mistaken, there's a sizeable contingent of Christians in Kerala.

Someday, I'd like to make a visit.
