Who Chases Google with Desires Fork?

Abby Zimet

Not everyone is happy with the privacy-challenging technological marvel that is Google Street View. Hence the recent ambush by two scuba-gear-wearing, pitchfork-wielding protesters in Bergen, Norway. The English translation of the Norwegian account is wonderful. We hasten to add: Our translation into Norwegian would be much worse.

"In the Google car roars past, bouncing the two up with their own
desires forks in his hands, and comes running after the vehicle in the
diving suit and flippers."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
