Google Street View's wackiest scenes

The Internet is full of silly websites, but this one takes the cake. I know you've heard of Google Street View. Now, I want to introduce you to its woolier cousin, Google Sheep View. The site was created as a silly joke by a couple of sheep enthusiasts who decided to compile Google Street View photos containing the four-legged animals.

As for the simply brilliant name, [Ding] Ren says the idea was 100% Freudian slip. "I was asking Mike to look something up on Google Street View and said Google Sheep View by mistake and didn't even realize it. Guess I just always have sheep on the mind," Ren said.

Sheep on the mind, indeed. Before creating Google Sheep View, Ren and his friend Mike Karabinos rode trains around their native Netherlands to look at sheep in the countryside. Now, thanks to their Tumblr website, sheep enthusiasts don't have to hop on a train. They can see the wooly animals right through their Web browser.
