You've probably noticed a few things Google sneak in to their search engine. Like some of the things they come up when you search something.

This is an old one:


or another old one:
1. Go to Google maps
2. Search "New York to Tokyo"
3. Read instruction 38

This is the most recent one i've found:
1. Go to Google
2. Search "What defines an english person"
3. Look at first link

What are some of your experiences with google's sense of humor?

I like how when you put "why are americans" the whole first page is full of results that end the question with "so fat"

For reasons inexplicable, a “Today I Learned” thread on Reddit has turned into a treatise on how to make Google Translate beatbox for you, among other things. It must have taken some intense experimentation for Redditor Harrichr to get here but he somehow stumbled upon the following combination of steps.

1) Go to Google Translate
2) Set the translator to translate German to German
3) Copy + paste the following into the translate box: pv zk pv pv zk pv zk kz zk pv pv pv zk pv zk zk pzk pzk pvzkpkzvpvzk kkkkkk bsch
4) Click “listen”
5) Be amazed

Since the original post both the thread and meme have expanded into slight tweaks and variations, including Technocopter, Helicopter and Dubstep. YCombinator user iamdave actually posted a guide to making your own beats:

zk = suspended cymbal
bschk = snare
pv = brush
bk = bass
tk = flam1
vk = roll tap
kt = flam2
kttp = flam tap
krp = hi hat tap
pv = short roll
th = better hi hat
thp, ds = instant rimshot.

That was pretty amazing. I've not heard of that before

Few more:
Zounds! Chrome's Annoying Sounds Few browser extensions are as irritating as Chrome Sounds, an April Fools' Day joke that actually works--if you're foolish enough to install it. According to Google, Sounds provides "a more magical and immersive experience when browsing the web using the power of sound." In reality, its enhancements include the sound of breaking glass when a window closes, and other auditory annoyances that rival nails on a chalkboard.

This isn't new Duffman I've known about this for ages. It's brilliant but Harrichr never came up with this.

You realize, I hope, that Google had nothing to do with "Why is there a dead Pakistani on my couch" right? That line is a scene from LOST, and was a popular search for a while.

As an englishman and a kayaker, I find google's sense of humour rather offensive.

The best one.
Go to maps.google.com
Go on directions
In A, type 'The Shire'
In b, type 'Mordor'
Click on the walking icon, click get directions, rofl.

It says the kayak thing for any transcontinental directions...


Edit: Way back in the day you could google "french military victories" and it would say "Did you mean french military defeats?"

Another good one was searching 'failure' with the I'm Feeling Lucky option and it'd take you to Bush's wiki page.

Really?
Are you clicking on the walking thing?
It says
"Warning - Walking is in beta. Beware - One does not simply walk into Mordor" or something.

Don't pick a city name, just type The Shire and leave it. Not The Shire, New York or anything.
