Pensioner’s Giant Cock Has Become A Tourist Attraction In UK

A Scottish pensioner’s home has become a local tourist attraction after he erected a 14 foot (4.25 metre) cockerel in his front garden.

73-year-old Jim Hughes pruned an ivy-covered tree into the shape of a male chicken outside his home in East Wemyss, and even added a beak and a comb to make it look even more cock-like.

“Originally, it was an old cherry blossom tree,” Hughes told Fife Today. It got that big that I was worried it would be blown over and hit a car.”

”It’s in the front garden and looks out into the street. Since then, quite a few people have been stopping to take photographs,” he added. “I call it Jock. And it’s crowing for independence.”

Jim isn’t the only keen horticulturalist making headlines with bizarre topiary.

Back in February, tree surgeon Chris Bishop rose to fame after pruning an 18 foot (5.5 metre) tree on his property into a giant penis.

Worcestershire resident Chris spent three years growing out the Cypress tree before he was able to trim it to look like a huge gentleman’s sausage.

The green-fingered 43-year-old told Caters: “No-one’s commented when I’ve been out in the garden, people have just looked at it and walked past. I think it’s because they’re trying to work out whether it’s just their dirty minds.”

Despite protests from angry neighbours, Chris says he plans to grow the foliage out even more so he can add a pair of testicles to the sculpture.
