A man who used a drawing of a penis as his signature "for a laugh" has lost a five-year battle with Australian authorities for it to be recognised.
Jared Hyams scrawled the provocative - and hairy - moniker at the bottom of a form for the Australian Electoral Commission as a joke but will be breaking the law if he continues to use it.
He said: "When I did this signature all of a sudden the s**t hit the fan. I was receiving letters and phone calls telling me I couldn't have it. I thought, that's interesting, why not?
"I thought it would be a laugh; they would approve it and next year I would sign something different.
