Illustration for article titled Google Street View Becomes Google Bag View in Alaska

One of the occupational hazards of Google Street View is, I guess, having the camera obscured by something. It could be a pterodactyl, perhaps, flying low for a closer view, it could be a giant Monty Python-style animated brogue homing in on the car as if it were a roach ripe for the squishing. Or it could be a plastic bag. One minute it's dancing around, American Beauty-style, the next it's spread-eagled over the camera rather like an over-amorous spinster at a barn dance. This is what Minnie Street in Fairbanks, Alaska, looks like, according to Google Street View. [Google Maps via Google Sightseeing]
