Google's Annual Memorial Day Excuse

One of Charles Johnson’s readers get the standard form letter that Google’s been sending out every year since at least 2005 regarding their lack of a Memorial Day splash page, despite having pages commemorating World Water Day, and the birthdays of Edvard Munch, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Percival Lowell, and Ray Charles. (Though the international celebrity with a huge fanbase born on December 25th remains oddly unnamed each year by Google…)

Because the art designers at Google seem remarkably stumped by the unique design challenge that is Memorial Day, Zombietime is soliciting reader help.

Zombie is requesting that contest entrants keep things as tasteful and reverent as possible. Call me unnecessarily cynical and churlish, but something tells me though, whatever they design just won’t make the cut with Google.
