April !, 2010: Topeka'd

This is why I love Google, excuse me, Topeka - and why the company is not Microsoft. The former has always demonstrated a sense of humor; the latter, never.

Google changes it's name

I feel disturbed by this. Yes the kinship google shared with the city is nice... blah blah blah. But I was very attached to the google name. I'm going to miss it. I feel empty.

I hope this is a joke... Changing "Google" to "Topeka" will ruin the whole industry. -.-'

I "topeka'ed him on altavista" <--that one just killed me!!!

So the April Fools Joke with Topeka has taken us all by surprise, however it did do one thing in my opinion, It has now made MANY americans and many people around the world aware of the presense of a Topeka, Kansas, as I didn't even know a place named Topeka existed. It has sparked an Idea, which I would require to cal...l upon ALL TOPEKANS, as us at Temple of groove would love to configure a Social Network application geared Specifically towards Topekans, We will name this Topekas as a combination of Topeka and Kansas. If we find support this would be in the works. Email us at info@templeofgroove.com or visit us at http://www.templeofgroove.com/ as we have already purchased http://www.topekas.org/

Google was a good company, but those Topeka guys I wouldn't trust as far as I can through them. You know they are up to no good.

You have got to be kidding. "Son, go Topeka it." Come on. Let's hope it is a joke. Otherwise, it's a very bad business move. What did we do to deserve this? It ain't funny. I will never be a Topekan. I rather be a Binger.
