Have you ever spotted a Google Street View car in your area? Google updates its Street View imagery every few years or so in most urban areas, so depending on where you live, you might have a pretty good chance of seeing one of Google's unmistakable Street View cars take a drive down your street with its branded exterior and wacky looking camera perched on top of its roof. It just so turns out that Google's Street View team often ends up capturing some pretty strange stuff. And with so much surface area to cover, those strange images that were captured usually end up on Street View, only later to be spotted by users checking out the area online. Why not grab your stuffed penguin pal and head out for a nice bike ride?
