Flaming Bag of PoopAn old childish prank has made its way to your virtual doorstep, Google Maps.

Everyone growing up has heard of or possibly participated in the old flaming bag of dog poop left at the doorstep of an unsuspecting neighbor. But have you ever seen it done virtually? I have not - at least not until today.

State Farm Insurance agent, Jeff DiBlasi, had his Google Maps/Place page vandalized with poop by someone playing a dirty prank against him. Here is his Google Place page and as you can see, one of the featured pictures is a poop diaper that leaked.

Google Places Poop Diaper Prank

Jeff DiBlasi said in a Google Places Help thread, "Someone put REALLY inappropriate photos of pictures of poo on my business listing."

He did report the image weeks ago but the image is still there.

Is this the new form of dropping a flaming bag of poop at the virtual doorstep of a neighbor or business you dislike?
