Google's Sense of Humour

funny google searches

Contrary to belief it seems Google do have a sense of humour. Google, that company that seem to be trying to take over every aspect your life, have often shown in the past that they have something of a sense of humour – debatably more than their Apple counterparts, who have only really begun to show theirs with the interesting responses Siri gives to specific questions.

Contrary to belief it seems Google do have a sense of humour. Google, that company that seem to be trying to take over every aspect your life, have often shown in the past that they have something of a sense of humour – debatably more than their Apple counterparts, who have only really begun to show theirs with the interesting responses Siri gives to specific questions.

A lot of people are aware of the little amusement Google can bring to your every day search, but surprisingly more people are not, and very few know a comprehensive list. This is why we’ve pulled together out list of Google’s top 15 Easter Eggs – the hidden little surprises that can be uncovered. The majority of these require you to turn Google instant off and use ‘I’m feeling lucky’ as a search option, just so you’re aware.

Let it snow

Type this in to Google to get a little festive treat. Enjoy a little snowfall on your monitor and watch it mist up like a window on a cold Christmas morning. See it here.

Hanukkah

Search for this and you get a nice string of lights below the Google banner, demonstrating a bit of diversity from Google there – not all about Christmas is it? See it here.

Do a barrel roll

A bit of harmless fun, doing exactly what it says on the tin. Google will roll over in front of you. See it here.

’tilt’ or ‘askew’

It’ll put google on a funny angle and you may need to adjust your neck ever o slightly to get the best out of it. See it here.

Google Gravity

Gravity hits the Google web search as all of a sudden things come crashing down thanks to Sir Isaac Newton’s principles being employed here. You will need to feel lucky! See it fall here.

Epic Google

This really does make Google go totally epic, but you will need to feel lucky! See it here.

The Crocodile Hunter

Again, not so much a search function. But if you head over to Google earth, and search around the Sydney Opera House, you’ll find the late Steve Irwin posing with a croc.

Google Guitar

That old doodle that was an awful lot of fun won’t ever disappear fortunately. Play it here.

Google Pacman

That little game that bypassed all of the work’s security and managed to entertain too many people for too long and wasted too many man hours. Test your skills here.

Google Sphere

An image search with a twist, its just plain remarkable. See it here.

The Head and the Freezer

We are not quite sure what is special about ‘241543903’ but we suggest you head on over to Google, type in ‘241543903’ and click images. It’s is strangely spooky!

Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Jet Ski and Google Maps

If you have 30 seconds this afternoon we will set you this chuckling little challenge:

  • Select ‘Get Directions’
  • Type in ‘Japan’ as your start location
  • Type in ‘China’ as your end location
  • Click ‘Get Directions’
  • Scroll down to direction number 43 and give yourself a wee smile!!
