Latest Google Press Release Leaves Bad Taste
Story Text:

A whole bunch of happy Google huggers are busily reporting the oh so fun search for a couple of cooks post on the GoogleBlog today, and whilst I don't feel that slapping them about over world hunger is particularly fair (i mean, are we not allowed to talk about food?), some of the points Erin Bradley makes are very well put, and bear repeating.

Dear Google,

You're the richest, coolest, most awesometastic company in the whole wide world.

WE GET IT.

It just screams of noveau riche (think Steve Martin as Navin Johnson in this movie) and makes us wonder why such a seminal company still feels like it's got something to prove.

Maybe you're jealous of Yahoo's buddy-buddy relationship with glamour boy Richard Branson and want the world to know you're jet-setters too?

Here's a tip: a simple "help wanted" ad will do.

You are what you eat... nuff said.

For a single guy...

Oh, yeah, that blog entry smacks of, well, err, you know.

To be perfectly fair, the tagline for the blog is "Googler insights into product and technology news and our culture." So it fits.

New Vogue Thing

I know its the new vogue thing to bash google, but this is a stretch. So they have fun making the google blog and hiring a chef, krikeys !!

Your getting soft Nick

I'm worried your getting soft by posting to such nonsense. Seriously, Erin needs to get a life. Sure, the humour from Google isn't everyones cup of tea, but lets ban all cooking blogs as well because shit, some third world country run by a despot lacks sufficient food, lets ban housing sites because some people don't have shelter in major cities, f*ck, lets ban web sites because some people don't have internet access.

Hey, i did say i didn't

Hey, i did say i didn't agree with that bit...
