The owner paints a warning message on the roof to prevent curious neighbors from watching – but the waterfall backfires spectacularly!
A homeowner tagged ‘look p*rn, not me’ on his roof to apparently poke fun at nosy neighbors spying on Google Maps – but the stunt has backfired as tens of thousands are now flocking to see it.
The beautiful waterfront property is located in Lake County, Northeastern Illinois, which has natural terrain ranging from sand dunes to prairie.
An image of the property was shared by a Facebook user who posted a photo of the crude graffiti on a dedicated group chat with other satellite imagery fanatics.
As a result, the rude message, which is painted in white capitals to contrast sharply against the owner’s black roof, can now be found on Google Images, with the world able to see it.

It appears the painted message is serving to dig in those who may be spending too much time browsing Google Maps or poking fun at nosy neighbors

Historical images from Google Maps show the text has been on the roof since 2008 and has faded in the past two years.
A Facebook post highlighting the incident received more than 120,000 interactions, with many taking to the social media platform to express their thoughts on the irony.
One claimed “the whole world” is now watching their rural property, and another, who appears to be a Google Maps enthusiast, added, “Close to Chicago.” Soon it should be a law to have a quote on your roof”.
Another commented: ‘That poor guy or whoever is probably seeing this and thinking ‘well shit, that didn’t work.
Another user remarked, “And then all of a sudden the whole world was staring at them.”
One joked: “I can’t disagree with the owner.”
It’s unclear who exactly wrote the teasing post, but social media users believe it was the owner.
