SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Google's mystery barge is heading on a short cruise to comply with an order requiring it to move from its current home on a San Francisco Bay island.

The agency leasing the Treasure Island space where the barge is being built says the four-story vessel is bound for the Port of Stockton, a destination located about 80 miles east of San Francisco.

The barge is supposed to move by March 7, according to Mirian Saez, director of operations for the Treasure Island Development Authority, which rented the vessel's current home.

The mystery surrounding this is certainly giving it some publicity, unwanted or otherwise.

The "leave San Francisco for Stockton" part sounds like it's just crying out for a punchline, but I can't figure it out.
