Google jokes

One of the things I like about Google is the way they try and inject a bit of humour into what they do. Being funny is a key part of internet culture, and Google’s occasional light-heartedness is a welcome break from other more po-faced tech companies.

Here’s a couple of examples:

1) Recursion

Search for ‘recursion’ on Google, and see the suggested result. It took me a couple of seconds to get it…


2) ASCII art

A real one for the geeks this. Seach for ASCII art on Google and see what happens to the logo…

3) Anagrams

Search for the word anagram on Google, and it offers this suggestion – ho! ho!


4) World Cup

This one came to my attention today via Google’s Matt Cutts, who posted this to Twitter:

And here it is:


Nice one!
