Street View Party Time

Peg Man
The street view icon on Google Maps currently portrays Peg Man wearing a party hat and three balloons. Is he celebrating Stock Market Meltdown Day?

Perhaps he is celebrating Google's 10th birthday?

Or perhaps he's a few months late turning up to pose for the street view car's snapping of Google employees at the Googleplex.

The street view icons in Japan and Australia are also similarly attired in their best party clothes. However the French Monsieur Peg Man is still racing the Tour de France two months after the rest of the riders packed up and headed home.

you do realize that "peg man" implies the fine art of "pegging", in which a member of the opposite sex wears a strap-on phallus and proceeds to "peg" said "man". google may want to rethink this name...or not, if they're down with that ;p
