NEW YORK (CNNMoney) — In the outskirts of Rawalpindi, a Pakistani city less than 10 miles southwest of Islamabad, is what appears to be a park in the shape of an Android robot peeing on an Apple logo.

At least, that’s what shows up if you look up Rawalpindi in Google Maps.

The park is not actually there — it’s an illustration.

It’s not clear how long the image has been there or how it got there. When you look at “satellite view,” you’ll see a few residential roads, a bit of green space and some hills — nothing that looks remotely like an Android peeing on an apple.

It was discovered Friday by Ahmad Babar, a former Samsung employee living in Lahore, Pakistan.

On Facebook, Babar posted that he came across the Android image while looking for a place in Rawalpindi.

Google is no stranger to so-called Easter eggs — hidden treasures in its products. Just try typing “tilt,” “do a barrel roll,” “recursion,” “anagram,” “once in a blue moon,” or “answer to life the universe and everything” into Google’s search engine.

In Google Images, type “Atari breakout.” Google Translate has Pirate, Elmer Fudd, Klingon and Pig Latin options.

There are literally dozens of Google Maps Easter eggs in addition to the Android peeing on an Apple logo, including a tie-dyed Street View character in Berkeley, California and a “royal carriage” transportation option when asking for directions to Windsor Castle.

Spokesmen for Google and Apple did not respond to requests for comment.
