I noticed that there has been a MARKED drop-off in new Doodles over the last 2-months.
Makes no sense. Google’s designers most likely all work from home — virus or no virus. So, the ‘stay-at-home’ should not have had any impact.
But, something is up.
Just wanted to make sure that you were aware.
Now you know.
Check Category ‘Google Doodle’.
Google Doodle For April 28, 2020, Was About ‘Cricket’ & Repurposed From June 1, 2017 — ICC Champions Trophy.
I knew it was cricket-related as soon as I saw it. The wickets were a dead giveaway. The rolling-pin as a bat was a bit off-putting.
Then there was the sock — or more to the point a sock with very distinctive coloring. You have to be a devoted fan, such as I, to spot that. Those are the West Indies colors.
Anyway, here is my post for the June 1, 2017 Google Doodle. Enjoy.
So, what was Google THINKING?
Yes, Google as we all know has a long and storied history of doing clever April 1st jokes.
Yes, we all know about the ongoing pandemic. Yes, I worked out that Google MIGHT refrain from joking around this year — given the gravity of the situation.
So, it would have been BEST not to do ANYTHING.
Do the Google Doodle for her the next day. That would have been better.
This was STUPID — Google.
Say it after I. “This was STUPID Google”.

Very strange and curious coverage.
It could still happen, BUT it is NOT looking good.
I feel bad for the Sinhalese. Google really is giving them the finger! Shame.
Well, I did my bit 5-years ago and got Sri Lanka its VERY FIRST Google Doodle. And I am not even a Sri Lankan anymore — legally.
There are Sri Lankans that work for Google They obviously don’t care.
