    Thats a pretty good one. Hopefully there will be many more good internet jokes this year. Today is my birthday, and I always like looking for the jokes every year.

    edit - I just saw this on the news too. I have igoogle as my default, but then I saw the Topeka page on the news, so I clicked on the Classic Home and sure enough there it is in blue red yellow and green. lol.

    The fact that Google's blog has a direct link to this post on BHW is disturbing.

    They are watching our every move. :rolleyes:

    i noticed a few weeks ago that the redirection does not always work on here. so be careful of the links you post.

    lol. Thanks new moon. No joke it is my bday. it kinda sucked when i was a kid it's always a big deal on someones bday in middle school, but when it was my turn everyone would just think I was making a April fools joke. lol
    But other than that I always liked it.
