To reduce controversy, next year the students are planning...
...to hang the lights over the rear entrance.
You've heard of the e-penis – the measure of an individual's power and stance on the internet – but have you considered the street penis? Yes, 'tis the season to overcompensate by spewing the most garish Chrimbo lights display possible all over your home to let your neighbours know that you are indeed the big man. We all know …
An indirect relative of mine tells stories of a perfectly restrained, polite and quiet young lady in his shared student house who was in the middle of PhD writeup.
One day, completely calm and unassuming, she went into the garden, took out the lawn mower, mowed the word "Wank" into the back lawn and then quietly went back to her room, presumably to continue writing but nobody knew for sure because nobody dared talk to her for the rest of the day.

"I would hope that if they are students, their university or college takes some form of action against them"
Someone should try get a hold of the the head of the staff there, and put forth an oral complaint relating to taste and the sheer size of the thing.

There was time when 16/17 year olds were treated as "almost adults" in taking responsibility for themselves - in line with their still current legal sexual consent and even marriage.
If you would care to read the Reading Chronicle article the Reg refers to it states (and I quote)

It is believed to have been erected by a group of students living in the house."
Sometimes I really appreciate local rag journalists.
