This is the image in question. If you don’t see an image with roads, then the New Yorker’s fail whale has failed (or perhaps just changed).
This is the Wikipedia article that sent me on the wild whale chase. Of course, it may well have been fixed by the time you read this.
This is a previous post on Twitter’s Fail Whale.
If I knew of a page about Fail Whales and their relatives, I’d link to it. Ideally, it would collect fail images.
