Yup, It's April 1st

I want to look up something, some song lyrics, as I can't remember them exactly. I go to Google, to do the search, and I am greeted by this at the top of the page:

a different kind of logo
Yup, April 1st.

Topeka, for the geographically impaired, is the capitol city of the state of Kansas, about a 80 minute drive west on I-70 from Kansas City. This all started, when Topeka, competing with many cities across the fruited plain for Google services, told Google they would change the name of the town to Google. Thus was born this April 1 plan from Google. You can read more about it here.

It did make me giggle a little, even though I kind of knew it was coming. The visual took me by surprise.
