Web search engine Google changes name to ‘Topeka’ on April Fool’s Day

It’s no joke, go to the world’s favortie search engine and you’ll see that TOPEKA has replaced GOOGLE.  Yes, we realize it’s ironically April Fool’s Day…

The change is purportedly a return gesture to Topeka, Kanasas, whose mayor unofficially renamed the city “Google, Kansas,” for the month of March in an effort to land a spot on Google’s “Fiber for Communities” program. The initiative, launched this year by Google, promises to install new broadband cables in random communities around the United States

Topeka is on the map now!  And if you’re wondering where in the world Topeka, KS is…Google Maps: Topeka
