    The logo for Valentine's day on google is fairly odd, seems to spell 'googe'!

    Anyone else notice this? :D

    EDIT: Incase they change it, here's the original!

    I didn't even notice that. They're missin' an L. The stem doesn't really look like an L.

    The stem is definitely meant to be the L, but lets face it - they've cocked it up and it looks like googe.

    All the decent chocolate-dipped strawberries I've ever seen actually do have very long stems. :eek:

    Very true, Google still did a crap job, not that I care all that much.

    I'd rather talk about this than Anna Nicole's death.

    Looks the same to me as well.

    The stem just isn't enough to look like the L.

    http://googe.com/ is a parked domain and isn't very useful for searching the Internet.

    And it's too bad that elgoog.com is gone. It used to let you search Google but display everything backwards.

    Every holiday they change up the name to associate the celebrations and what not with their site.

    Nothing new.

    I think that there already is a thread about this design, but I'm to lazy to look for a link right now.

    what happened to elgoog? I liked it a lot! do they still have that site where you type your name and it makes google say that in google letters instead of "google"?
    the stuff i've found out about from bored kids in the school computer lab...

    I mentioned elgoog in my post above. It's been gone quite some time, and Google may even have had something to do with shutting them down.
