About Google Doodles

Doodles are the fun, surprising, and sometimes spontaneous changes that are made to the Google logo to celebrate holidays, anniversaries, and the lives of famous artists, pioneers, and scientists.

.....

Who chooses what doodles will be created and how do you decide which events will receive doodles?

A group of Googlers get together regularly to brainstorm and decide which events will be celebrated with a doodle. The ideas for the doodles come from numerous sources including Googlers and Google users. The doodle selection process aims to celebrate interesting events and anniversaries that reflect Google's personality and love for innovation.

How can Google users/the public submit ideas for doodles?

The doodle team is always excited to hear ideas from users - they can email

proposals@google.com

with ideas for the next Google doodle. The team receives hundreds of requests every day so we unfortunately can't respond to everyone. But rest assured that we're reading them :)

Just switch to Bing.

It works better than Google and has less of the liberal propaganda.

RULE 4: “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

If the rule is that every letter gets a reply, send 30,000 letters. You can kill them with this because no one can possibly obey all of their own rules. (This is a serious rule. The besieged entity’s very credibility and reputation is at stake, because if activists catch it lying or not living up to its commitments, they can continue to chip away at the damage.)

~ Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

View of Latest Articles shows several threads on this atrocity. What does google care if you don’t like what you see, as long as you see it?
Quit lookin’ at that stuff! Dogpile’s better :)

From Wiki

We Are All Khaled Saeed is a Facebook group which formed in the aftermath of Saeed’s beating and death. The group attracted hundreds of thousands of members worldwide and played a prominent role in spreading and bringing attention to the growing discontent. As the protests began, Google executive Wael Ghonim revealed that he was the person behind the account. Later after the revolution, in a TV interview in the presence of member of the ruling military council, it was revealed that AbdulRahman Mansour, a young underground activist and media expert shared the account with Wael Ghonim. Another potent viral online contribution was made by Asmaa Mahfouz, a female activist who posted a video in which she challenged people to publicly protest. Previously, Facebook had suspended the group because some of its administrators were using pseudonyms, a violation of the company’s ‘Terms of Service.’

Google hasn’t had an Easter doodle in 13 years. Complain all you want, but you’re wasting your time.

Just so everybody knows, Google absolutely loves it when the "far-right" (as they perceive us to be) gets all in a snit whenever their "Google Doodle" of the day ignores or marginalizes religious and patriotic holidays that most conservatives hold dear.

Those of you are bothering to email them in order to register your disapproval are merely encouraging them. With each new scathing email that comes in, you can bet that the Google people are high-fiving each other back in Mountain View and are already thinking ahead to what Google Doodle will outrage the conservatives the most on Memorial Day.

Sure, it's all juvenile and silly. But you guys are playing right along with it like some rookie high school teacher who just sat on a fart bag and is now shrilly lecturing the class for being disrespectful - as they try to stifle their laughter while thinking up the next gag to pull on her.

Google Team,

I find that your Doodle of Chavez, a known corrupt and human rights violator, to be inappropriate and right down disrespectful. I have served this country as a member, commissioned officer, and civilian within the Department of Defense and State - upholding the traditions and values of this nation (United States) so companies and individuals, like your self, can prosper and live life to the fullest. Depicting a self-appointed regime leader that has committed so many violation towards the common person in Venezuela it’s not even funny. Nor is this depiction of a person that would seen Google seized by his state, had you decided to upstart your search engine. I don’t know if you are reading this or will read it as seriously as you should. By placing this up there and not any reference to Easter - or just leaving it blank sends a big slap in the face against all US Military members and those civilians that report to work and duty all over the world to ensure that you have the right to place something like Chavez on your search engine Doodle. I would like to be the first to say, “Thank You for the disrespect and immaturity on your part.” I understand that you heads of Google are anti-Christian and very progressive. That’s fine. You guys have that right - but it’s a right that was gained by men like me that left the comforts of home to place our lives on the line to maintain the way of life that this nation has enjoyed since the 1780’s. People like Chaves do not need to be celebrated, due to the historical fact he did nothing but run his country in the ground. If you so hate the US and the Christian value system that made this country the way it is - then please - go to Cuba, Venezuela, or Iran and take your ideas and company with them and enjoy all the perks of the fascist regimes that they offer like minded individuals like yourself.

Good Day and Happy Easter - for a single man laid down his life - for all of us. The least you can do is not have put anything up to counter that.

Why do people complain so much about something they have no control over?

Start your own search company. Then put whatever doodle you want on the search page.

Problem solved.

It’s still a free country and Google can do whatever they want.

who cares if they “honor” Easter. If Google’s little logo doesn’t honor the fact that Jesus rose from the dead. So what?

Who cares what any of these fools honor or dishonor? It just reveals who they are. We can point it out, we are free to comment and even write them... but Jesus had no army, no riches, preached love and forgiveness and told us basically to realize that all here on earth is just useless crap while his true kingdom is the real reward.

I used to get twisted up by Piss Jesus, Stomp Jesus, defame Jesus and all the other little protestations about the one true Lord... well guess what? They crucified him, tortured and murdered his disciples and have for over 2000 years killed, maimed and prosecuted those who believe.... still we stand.

It’s like looking at a monkey reach into his cage and pull out a turd to eat.. they look so foolish and petty. You can correct them but in the end they’re monkeys. They play with their poo... cause that’s what they do. Haters, atheists and their ilk are the same.. it’s what they do.

It always ends poorly for them. Always has, always will. There is always something missing in their lives that no amount of money, drugs, mistresses, vacations, sexual adventures, houses, mansions, cars, planes, power and slaves will fill. They’ll always be trying to fill the hole that only our Lord and following his path leads to.

I’m a crappy Christian... so I just say “screw ‘em”. Destroy yourselves while I try to muddle through this life with my family and follow the path I’ve chosen.

It takes a special kind of stupid to be getting filthy rich off capitalism, while hating it and celebrating leftists and Marxists. Google is and has been dead to me for quite a while. In the meantime, I celebrate that Christ is alive!

It is all quite simple.

Call your stock broker first thing Monday morning and place an order for $135 billion dollars in Google stock (GOOG). Once the trade is executed and the $135 billion is taken out of your checking account, you will own a majority stake in Google and you can direct to board and employees to do Doodles to your liking.

Google did not do anything comparable to Serrano's work. All Google did was fail to make an important Christian holiday the theme of one of the doodles on their search page. They didn't insult Christianity in any way. By paying so much attention to Google's doodles and becoming offended over every slight, conservatives give the doodles far more importance than they are meant to have or should have.

I've known several developers and engineers up at Google - and most are not classic liberals. Many could be described as fiscal conservatives or libertarians, and I know one is a social conservative in at least some of her views. But the programmers aren't deciding the doodle topics, I guess.

They’ve been doing this at every opportunity for a decade. This one in particular they’ve probably had circled on their calendar for years.

They’re reading these irate emails aloud to each other today, mocking them, and passing their favorites around to their friends. Nothing makes them happier than knowing they’ve made Christians upset on the Holiest day of the year.

Don’t give them the satisfaction. Not today.

Rejoice... the Lord is risen.

Here is something you can do. You can start your own search engine and then you will be free to do whatever doodle you like on each of the holidays.

I'm thinking of starting my own search site and calling it Fork.com. I might have to buy the www.fork.com domain but what the hell, seems like the owner is not doing much with it anyway.

So instead of "googling" your way around the internet, you can "fork" your way around the internet using my Fork search engine. Imaging "forking" Sandra Bullock instead of just "googling" her. Now that's what I'm talking about. Fork.com could potentially make me one of those Internet billionaires and I'll be able to roller skate down the hallway of my corporate headquarters, not shave every morning and show up late for meetings and nobody will be able to do anything about it because I will own the company and I will be hailed as a genius.

I'll make the cover of WIRED and technology paparazzi will flock to my press conferences as I announce my latest product - in "beta" form of course. Forget Google glasses. I'm going to embed the Internet into a fork so that you can surf the Internet while you're eating.

But back to the doodles, I'm going to have the best holiday doodles on my Fork.com search engine landing page in the industry. For example, on Patriots Day, I'm going to have a bunch of dead Redcoats on the top with their blood trickling down the page to form the word FORK. On St. Patricks Day, I'm going to have web page go green and there will be a drunken leprechaun spilling green beer into the FORK logo. On V-J Day, I'm going to show a Japanese Zero warplane on fire crashing into the FORK logo with a mushroom cloud coming up from below.

It will be awesome. And yes, people will complain. Then I shall go public and list my stock for $17.76 a share.
