I’ve spent the past 24 hours meandering around the newly unleashed Dallas version of Google Street View, which offers a street-level picture of everything in the entire city. Amazing. And amazingly addictive. Jump to learn how you can help us hunt for funny pics of your city — and win a prize!
Okay, in other cities where this launched earlier, there were a certain number of images that were deemed inappropriate. Like, one woman in San Francisco was caught bending over to pick something up, and you could see her thong. Not that I’m suggesting you spend the next eight hours trolling Google Street View, trying to find a picture of a woman in her thong. No, no, no, no. Please don’t do that — now!
With a little work, you can find out how to embed a street view in a post, or in a comment, as I’ve done below. Once you’ve found an image on Google, click the “link to the this page” button, and follow the directions. Your job is to find a funny and/or noteworthy Google pic of Dallas. Someone coming out of a topless joint. Someone standing on a street corner, picking his nose. Troy Aikman jogging with his shirt off. Whatever.
You’ve got till Monday. Post them in the comments section for this item. Best pic gets a $15 gift certificate to iTunes. Do it.
