Play PacMan on the Streets of Dallas, Thanks to Google Maps and April Fool's Day

As a brilliant April Fool's Day scheme, the geniuses at Google turns its map browsers nationwide into an interactive Pac-Man game. For the next 36 hours or so, cities everywhere will see huge amounts of productivity tossed out the window as we right click our way through the streets of America. When you load Google Maps, you'll see an extra icon at the bottom left hand corner of your screen, click that and Blinky and Pinky will appear on Maple Avenue, or wherever it is you office.

Don't tell your bosses we told you.
