Wow, I’m shocked. Google has a yellow ribbon under their logo right now.
I have always loved when Google decorated their logo for holidays and certain birthdays and such. But I was always irked that they NEVER recognized any military or other patriotic days. Pissed even. The only thing remotely patriotic they ever recognized was Independence Day. But nothing on Veteran’s Day, Armed Forces Day, Flag Day, Memorial Day or Patriot Day (Sept. 11th) etc. etc.
I guess I wasn’t the only one who noticed because there was some complaining and finally Google started decorating their logo for Veteran’s Day the last two years now. Now today I see they have the yellow ribbon.
I still have a complaint though. Usually when they decorate their logo, if you click on it, it brings up several links on that topic/holiday. They didn’t link the ribbon to anything. I’m also thinking they should have done the yellow ribbon for Armed Forces Day – that would have made more sense. Memorial Day isn’t necessarily about supporting the troops but rather recognizing and remembering those who DIED for their country in war time. For some reason I picture the people in charge of this at Google are pimply faced 20 year olds who drink expensive Starbucks drinks and know nothing about life. And how come they didn’t decorate the logo itself?
Oh well, something is better than nothing I guess. At least they are slowly starting to get it.
