Fun Job of the Day - Google seeks full-time Doodler


The job calls for a "sense of humor, love of all things historical and imaginative artistry".
"First impressions matter," Google told prospective Doodlers.
"Every day, hundreds of millions of online users visit the Google homepage. Yes, to search. But also, to be delighted, informed, and surprised (And maybe even to laugh a little).
"The Google Doodle makes this possible - it's the change that is constant on Google.com."
"From Jules Verne to Pac-Man, you have the reins to our brand and iconic logo and can run free with your innovative ideas."

Failure to Launch The Movie starring Kim Jong Eun

Boris Johnson bans 'gay cure' bus adverts - Telegraph


Transport chiefs stepped in on the Mayor’s orders to block the posters, faced with a the prospect of the argument being played on the streets of the capital next week with rival advertisments.
Two Christian groups announced on Thursday that they had booked advertising space promoting the idea that people can become “post-gay” through therapy.
Anglican Mainstream, a traditionalist Christian coalition, and Core Issues Trust – a counselling group which practices controversial “reorientation” therapy – wanted to place full-length banners reading: “Not Gay! Ex-Gay, Post-Gay and Proud. Get Over It!”
They are a direct response to advertisements taken out by the gay rights group Stonewall earlier this month as part of the campaign for same-sex marriage reading: “Some people are Gay. Get over it!”
