It's A Google Thanksgiving (Vanity)
Google ^ | 11/22/2007 | Torchthemummy

Posted on 11/21/2007 11:25:21 PM PST by torchthemummy

Take a look at Google's Thanksgiving cartooned logo.

Sitting to the left of the table is a turkey dressed as an Indian and to the right a turkey dressed as a Pilgrim.

Can anyone tell me what is actually on the table being served as the main dish? Looks like a cat but if you zoom the picture it becomes too pixelated to tell.

Looks like a bunch a a veg-ta-bules to me! Kind of like the ads for the fast food chain where the cows hold signs saying stuff like "eat mor chikin".

Checked it out with a magnifier i had downloaded long ago..At first i thought they were having Garfield..On closer look though, they are eating vegetables..You can see carrots-orange with the green tops, something green-maybe lettuce, something purple-a beet maybe?, and potatos with little eyes..The white you see is a bib that the Indian is wearing and his long belly-with Garfield’s reddish orange color looks like-Garfield..Makes sense that the two turkeys would be vegetarians..a bit of irony that the Pilgrim is offering the Indian a cup of something-maybe tea and the Indian is holding up something-straight and short and orange on a stick that looks like a u-shaped fork...

Actually, the 'Indian' turkey on the left has carved out and is holding aloft the 'Pilgrim' turkey's still-beating heart. The 'Pilgrim' turkey on the right is holding out a tin cup in hopes the 'Indian turkey will return his still-beating heart.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Google is a trade mark for the search engine. The number I followed by a hundred zeros is spelled googol.

Yes, you're right, but I think the name for the search engine was actually stolen from Barney.

A close up looks like turnips, orange squash and maybe another vegetable.

Here’s my favorite search engine:

http://www.dogpile.com/

Look at the graphic on the dogpile page.

I use this search engine quite a bit — and it’s getting better over time:

http://www.scroogle.org

Use the scroogle scraper.

Do NOT go to the .com site.
That is porn and not affiliated with the .org site.

they are eating vegetables

Yes, a PETA inspired Thanksgiving. Or, in a Seattle school, a day of mourning. I would be mourning, too, if I had to eat that meal.

"The number I followed by a hundred zeros is spelled googol."

Unless being used as a transitive verb.

So, we have an Aztec Thanksgiving for the disabled? /Sarc

Gobble, gobble!

OTOH, if you look at Yahoo’s logo for long enough [or at the right time] the vegetables get up and dance around with arms and legs.

Really.

What's up with Drudge? He's got a photo of a PEACOCK for his headline with the word "Thanks" underneath.

At least as of 0827 Eastern. His page changes constantly.

I think that was a shot at NBC..."thanks"..

IMHO, it looks like the Turkeys are eating "chicken"..and veggies.

Happy Thanksgiving FReepers..

Hmmm...I didn't think of that.

I thought it was a Drudge staffer that didn't know the difference between a peacock and a turkey.

Tryptophan Man here,

The tryptophan from the turkey and wine is in it’s full effect, and that stuffing, potatoes, grill scrapings and extra thickened gravy has us unconscious on our couches.

From the looks of the Google logo, the turkeys are opposed to eating the traditional thanksgiving meal. They’ve got a pumpkin, tomatoes, and other assorted fruits and veggies.

What about those Google Christmas logos? I don’t even think I see a tree anymore nowdays. “Happy Holidays” it is.

Eat Well,

T-man
