Google Makes Me Laugh


Google Makes Me Laugh

I use Google Chrome as my web browser.  After the first couple of days of trying it, I was hooked.  I downloaded Chrome on all both of my computers and never looked back.  It works wonderfully with Gmail, it’s fast, and it’s very user friendly.  (There’s one website that I use at work that doesn’t like Chrome, however, so I do sometimes have to stoop to Internet Explorer.  And I mean “stoop” in a loving way.) 

I wouldn’t go so far as to say it’s perfect.  If it were, no one at Google would have a job.  Chrome bombed on me the other day, mind you, only for about 2 minutes.  I launched the browser and tried new tabs, but this was all I got:



“Aw, Snap!”?  I couldn’t help but laugh.  I didn’t know what was funnier: the x-ed eyes on the sad, file-folder-of-death or the cliché, Tracey Morgan catch phrase.  I immediately deemed it worthy of a screen shot and a blog post. 

It’s nice to know that the folks over at Google have a sense of humor.  After a little bit of investigation, I realized I’m not the only one who thinks this is funny.  You can even buy an “Aw, Snap!” T-shirt.


(I’m pretty sure it says “GEEK” in big, bold letters on the back, too.)

<3 the Google. :)

Their homepage logo changes are awesome, too. Did you see the day when they made the logo into a functional Pac-Man game? Or when they incorporated different Sesame Street characters over several days for the 40th anniversary? Go Google!

And Go You for writing about the Google. :)

i kinda want the t-shirt now.

i was reading your last post about word verification and a lot of the words i get are almost sexual. i wonder how the words are actually generated...

Cole Garrett said...

You know, every time I think I figure out how the words are generated, I get one that throws that theory out the window...
