Latest Google Parodies

Spotted via Google Blogoscoped,
Google Content
Blocker
is a parody of a pretend Google feature that blocks editorial content on pages, leaving only ads. But hey, not just Google ads. Any ads, in order not to be evil.

Meanwhile, spotted via Threadwatch is Marissa (Beta), a fake blog for
Google’s Marissa Mayer, director of consumer web products. Marissa often gets called out to defend Google
if it takes heat for some product features such as Google AutoLink.

We’ll see if that lasts longer than the fake blog created for Google cofounders Larry Page and Sergey Brin back in
2003 🙂
