Bare-chested Shetlander welcomes Google with open fingers

Evidently unimpressed with Street View spymobile

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Shetland Islands are proving fertile ground for Street View tomfoolery, and hot on the heels of yesterday's Incredible Hulk revelation we have this chap offering Google's Orwellian black Opel the traditional local welcome:

Bare chested Shetlander gives Street View the two-finger treatment

Splendid. Of course, every time we at the El Reg Street View bureau publish something provocative captured by Street View's all-seeing eye, it gets censored within hours.

Have a shufti at what happened after Vulture Central blew the lid on Royal Artillery numberplates on Thorney Island. Here's the scene a couple of days back...

...and the same view now:

Royal Artillery numberplate now blurred on Street View

Uncanny. No doubt the Great Satan of Mountain View will give our hospitable Shetlander the same treatment in due course.

And while we're still hanging around the Shetlands, one Mikey threw us this email regarding yesterday's Street View shindig: "Nice one....I'm the guy dressed as Danger Mouse! Famous at last...."

Danger Mouse caught on Street View

Yes you are - at least until Street View deems you unsuitable for public consumption. ®
