According to Silicon Valley Sleuth, Yahoo!’s new maps service (which I covered here) had a bogus local business listing for Google: “The Dude’s Fish Store”. The Sleuth’s web site has a screen shot, but I found more proof (and more irony) by Googling for “The Dude’s Fish Store”–it showed up in Yahoo! Local’s list of “Toys in Mountain View” (View image). It’s gone now, but I love that Google’s own index preserved the prank against them.
