    Google Spelled Incorrectly On Google.com??

    Go to google.com and take a look at the word 'Google' at the top. Does it look like it's spelled 'Googe' or is the green stem on the flower supposed to be the L??

    I'm sure this will be gone after today (Feb. 14) since it's the Valentine's Day logo on Google.com.

    Yeah, I know they change the logo quite often, like for holidays and all. My question is, do you think it looks like 'Google' is spelled incorrectly?

    It does look like its spelled "Googe". And thanks for pointing this out! I've been using Google all day and only just now noticed that.

    It's possible that the stem is intended to be the L, since the L is usually green. However, that's not entirely clear, and it does look like "googe." File it under "failed artistic gambits."

    Any way that you look at it, Google botched their own name. Love and forgiveness is in my heart, though. Afterall, it is Valentime's Day. Whoops! I do believe I misspelled the word "Valentine's".

    Most of their special logos don't look like they're spelled right.

    But I like them anyway.

    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    I loved some of the Olympic designs they had for the last Winter Olympics.

    SHeesh I wish I would have bought stock in this company. The shares might as well be through the roof!
