Instead of celebrating an important historical figure or holiday, yesterday’s Google Doodle clearly referenced some Google staffers’ lame inside joke. “I knew that the doodle wasn’t really for me as soon as I saw that the Os were supposed to be eggs, and there were arrows pointing to the Gs which read ‘Kelly’s slippery hands,‘” said one Google user, recalling that the doodle ended with beer bottles for the L and E. “Then when I clicked on it, it took me to a webpage which just read ‘Who spilled the eggs? Kelly spilled the eggs!’ I guess I could see that being funny if I’d have been there. I just feel like Google missed an important opportunity to do a more serious doodle on Abraham Lincoln’s birthday.” At press time, Google staffers were getting a good chuckle after placing targeted ads for “Kelly’s greasy eggs” in users’ browsers.
