:teehee:

Check out this (http://www.google.com/tisp/) link. Click some of the links within it and read about it. It took me a moment to realize it wasn't real. It's linked off of the main google search page. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

I was at work this morning, and I saw a different one (American server at work, Canadian server at home) about being able to get all of your email printed and sent you to you snail mail! :rofl:

This is my favourite part:

In-Commode Package Delivery
With professional installation service, you can also have your Google Checkout purchases delivered directly through the sewage network into your bathroom. Each package comes pre-sealed in a watertight and nanobot-resistant bag made of biodegradable corn-based plastic. For a limited time, TiSP subscribers who sign up for a Checkout account will receive free bathroom delivery on their first ten Checkout purchases.

:roflhard: :roflhard: :roflhard:

Everything on this (http://www.google.com/tisp/faq.html) page keeps cracking me up too!

I LOVE GOOGLE. They do some funny stuff.

Exhibit A:
Click Here (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=chicago+to+london&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=42.581364,112.148438&layer=&ie=UTF8&z=3&ll=46.437857,-42.890625&spn=37.174963,112.148438&om=1). Read directions... particularly #20.

Exhibit B:
Click Here (http://moon.google.com/). Zoom all the way in.

Google Rocks. :heart:

This (http://www.google.com/tisp/notfound.html) page is awesome as well, and has some links to some of their other gag pages!

Fancy a trip down memory lane? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Google's_hoaxes) Wikipedia has the url listing for all the google jokes of past years.

That 's great!!!!!!! I really like the Trickle, the #2 and the Royal Flush. I also like the one with the pigeons that are behind Google's successful searches.

I love April Fools!!!!!!

Why is TiSP in beta?
When things go wrong with TiSP, they go very, very wrong. Let's leave it at that.
