Overheard – Why aren’t there any Google jokes?

I just finished reading Robert Scoble’s blog post about Google’s page rank being dead and bloggers needlessly obsessing about their Google page rank (PR) numbers — and it reminded me of a question I’ve been meaning to ask somebody for awhile. How come there aren’t any Google jokes?

You can do a search and come up with literally hundreds of Microsoft jokes. There are Linux jokes. There are Unix jokes. There are Cisco jokes. IBM jokes. There are even jokes about bloggers.So how come there aren’t any jokes about Google?

Is Google’s power so formidable that it’s not funny? Are we afraid that if we joke about Google we’ll be punished and sent to SEO hell? Isn’t there anything funny about Google?

Or are there lots of great Google jokes floating around out there and I’m just the last one to know?

Back to work now.
