More Apple Maps mischief on Bad Monkey Street

Apple Maps is obviously a fan of my work. 
So it turns out that there is yet another problem with Apple Maps; it turns out that Apple Maps helped themselves to information from OpenStreetMap--the wikipedia of the map world--including street names that are editing pranks. Besides Mojo Way and Hillbilly Hameed, Apple Maps shows a street in Kabul named Bad Monkey.

Could it be that Apple Maps is a fan of my work? After all, I did call my second collection of articles that I write for the Hearthstone Community Church by the title Bad Monkey. Probably not, but that is a much better theory than Apple Maps trying to do a project for as cheap as humanly possible.

You can find Bad Monkey online at Barnes and Noble--Apple Maps might not tell you that.
