I've seen lists over the years of the hidden gags and funny stuff built into Google. It seems either the people who work there actually are "real" and allowed to express it, or the company wants to make it look like that's the case.

I can't remember what was on the lists, but the gags probably change, anyway. Entering the name of competing search engines might be fun, though.

They are called Google Bombs and actually have nothing to do with Google itself. It's a trick of search engine optimization that people use. When you hit the I'm Feeling Lucky button all that does is open up the page that ranks highest for your search criteria. People create pages that look like a Google search results page and then use tricks to get them to the top of the list on Google's index. In this case the top results for that search is:

http://www.nochucknorris.com/

What sucks is people use these same techniques to direct computers to malicious sites. Often right after a major event like the earthquake in Haiti. So when people do a search for it the top results are actually sites that contain malicious software or phishing type scams.

So it's cool and dangerous all at the same time.

Google does allow for their folks to do some fun and creative stuff, this just doesn't happen to be an example of it.
