    Fans of "Parks and Recreation" know that Ron Swanson is a man of simple taste.

    Give the park's director of Pawnee, Indiana a slab of meat, a mustache trimmer and a government that doesn't function and he is a happy man.

    So it stands to reason that a man of such old fashioned values would not be a big fan of Google Maps.

    But in Thursday night's episode of the popular NBC show, the character played by Nick Offerman joined the hoards of Europeans who have chased Google Maps cars out of their town.

    When Swanson finds aerial images of his home on the Mountain View-based search company's website, he freaks out and does what any rational man who values his privacy does: He trashes his government-issued computer.
