Google homepage featured an interactive holiday Doodle (Google Logo) from December 23 through December 25. The logo features 17 illustrations of scenes of peace, joy and beauty around the world.

Google, the giant internet superpower, is everywhere! Yes, with so many 3G and WiFi connected smartphones and portable computers it is seen that toilets are favorite places for some people to go online. But, that is not what I am going to talk about here.
It is a toilet paper named “Google”. I am sure it doesn’t relate to the Google we are accustomed to.
100% Virgin pulp, Google® toilet paper… Do you think this is the brand Larry Page and Sergey Brin use at the Mountain View, CA office?I don’t think so. The cheap manufacturer wanted to save on color and printed the name in a two color printing. [photo source]
