Well, the Easter Bunny went all starry on me - and, it may be an urban myth, but I believe they tried to teach pigeons to fly little kamikaze bombs - by teaching them to peck to keep a little ship outline centred on crosshairs for food pellet rewards.

I confess, I am glad A2k uses hamsters.

Just one more great way to prove to your friends that you're clinically insane:
From Google's Preferences page you can chose which language Google's messages are displayed in. I've been using Elmer Fudd as my language for a while now. Laughing Some other weird ones you can choose are 'Bork, bork, bork!', 'Hacker', 'Klingon' and 'Pig Latin'.

The same guy that did the french military victories google bomb also did one to disparage peace protesters. I forget his name but he is a right wing Canadian fella.

Type "anti-war peace protesters", then click I'm Feeling Lucky.

This doesn't work with other languages than English or google.com, however (until now).

Wanna list google bombs here too?

Here's a new one:

"miserable failure" has been Google bombed to point to Bush's biography.

Oil Monger
Ok, i have decided to start a google bomb on dick cheney. For those of you who dont know, a google bomb is a way of exploiting how google works to make a certain website come up when a phrase is searched for.

for example, type in miserable failure at google and look at the firt result. it's bushes official .gov bio. pretty amusing. i want to do the same with cheney.

the trick is having a huge number of web sites with a link to the desired site using the phrase. for cheney, i think "oil monger" will be apropriate.

if any of you have a website, dislike cheney, and like to support a good prank that could possibly get into the news (the bush google bomb did), please put this code somewhere in your site/weblog/whatever

<a href="http://www.whitehouse.gov/vicepresident">"oil monger"</a>

then if you would, add your site to google by going here

http://www.google.com/addurl.html

any help is appreciated, TELL YOUR FRIENDS

GoogleBomber,

A) This site eliminates pagerank so it won't help a GoogleBomb to post a link here.

B) I have done some fun Google Bombs. If you want to start a project let me know. I don't have the time but I can help.

This one's not a Google Easter egg either, but this is one of their weird domains that I'm starting to see in logs for sites I administer.

www.466453.com

Edit: I just realized what it is, it's "google" on a phone.
