I always go to iGoogle not the classic Google, so not knowing today was the 57 anniversary I didn't know till you posted. Of course the moment I saw the post I had to check it out. No scanner though...

We had a scanner sitting around for a project that's in production in the office... So we abused it. :-)

But it said what I figured it would say: Google

I was semi-hoping that it would say something else (AKA: something... erm, inappropriate), but I suppose they couldn't... there were probably a lot of people who checked, LOL!

I love that Google does that kind of stuff though. *g* I love internet easter eggs like that - like the point in the exclamation mark in the Yahoo logo on their site goes "Yaaaahoo!" when you click on it. :D

Wow. Okay. Never knew that one... *clicks more than once and gets strange stares from co-workers*

It used to be when you clicked on it (actually, I think it's the whole exclamation mark, now that I think about it...), the original Yahoo yell from the 90s played, but I just went to click on it, and now it's a chorus of different people. Lame.

But YAY for weirding out co-workers! :D

I think the old Yahoo yell would be better... but it was still something new and fun to push a few times.

When I first heard about it, I clicked it a couple hundred times, I think. That was when it was the old Yahoo yell... and I was in a coffee shop on a friend's laptop. I had my headphones on, and finally the guy behind the counter was like "WTF are you laughing at?!" because I couldn't stop giggling. I unplugged my headphones and explained it to him, and I did it, and then he started laughing, and it turned into the two of us clicking it randomly for the next half hour. *sporfle*

I am easily amused.

Yeah, it wouldn't be. Nice to have it confirmed though.
