Because the 4th July is unique to America, the World Cup is a World event?

When you get to be as big (and as good) as Google, you would think it no longer matters what they throw up as a Doodle - they could put girls in bikinis everyday & there would be those women who would get upset - but tGoogle's #s wouldnt be hit in the slightest.

It would be funny, in a way, for them to excercise this - a way to brag "we can do whatever we want !"

Then after proving a point, they would go back to normal of course.


This one is pretty cool:
