Google Maps helps you find your way, but Google Naps — a parody based on the popular mapping service — is helping you discover the best places for a snooze.
A group of Dutch users created Google Naps to uncover “the world’s coziest and coolest places to take a well-deserved nap.” These napping spots, which include Portugal, China, Indonesia, South Africa, Brazil and all four corners of the US, are shared by fellow users.

To avoid being called out for the blatant ripoff of Google Maps, the Dutch founders have left a message on the Naps tool for Googlers:
Hello, please don’t be mad this is just a joke, a parody. We don’t mean to damage your brand or anything, we just want to bring a smile on the faces of Google fans. So please don’t take this to court, we only have a few hundred Euros in the bank. And we also don’t want to go to jail because we’re too busy with other things at the moment.

Google Naps is probably more funny than useful for anything, really. The only time it could come in really useful would be when you’re on vacation, maybe — though why would one need to nap on a bench when that’s what hotels are for?
