BANZAI LABS GOOGLE EXPERIMENT
BANZAI7--Google Inc. is apologizing for a racially offensive image of the first lady that appears at the top of the list when users search for pictures of Michelle Obama on its site.
Google placed a text ad above the image titled "Offensive Search Results" that states "Sometimes our search results can be offensive. We agree."
As an experiment, BANZAI7 LABs has prepared an image of Google CEO Eric Schmidt morphed with the face of Mr McGoogle, a Chimpanzee scientist who works in the Lab.
We have tagged the Image "Eric Schmidt" and are waiting to see if and when it comes up on top in a Google Image Search of "Eric Schmidt".
This image has been prepared in the interests of good science. BANZAI7 Labs apologizes if you find this image disturbing.
