It's conclusive proof that google has been taken over by pagan devil worshippers. :p

They use the animal theme a lot for a lot of their logos, and for the new year logos it always has been an animal theme bar 2005.

|Anyone have any ideas about Google's new animal theme and newly alternative representation of holidays? |
I believe the idea is that cutesy little animals are safe and non-controversial. Ironically, just prior to seeing the beaver in the logo, I read a news item about the damage Canadian beavers (Castor canadensis) are doing in Chile, so maybe they're not so safe... (giant, clever rodents, with teeth that never stop growing - they'll take over the world if we aren't careful).
Happy New Year,
Stefan (in Canada)

Well seeings as beavers don't inhabit Australia, I found it very impersonal seeing the logo on google.com.au ...
Surely they could have spared the cost of one share price in wages to change that beaver to a koala and the pile of sticks to eucylptus leaves...!

It really is amazing what we learn here - WonderWorld should get a prize for seeing that 2006!
I was so concerned that the beaver had stacked his campfire wood up wrong, it would never burn right! And I thought he was yelling some expletive about where the heck did he pack those waterproof matches...
And now I feel so stupid that I didn't realize his campfire was the shape of a 6.
I'll bet only 1 in a million people can see the 2 in the mountains and the 6 in the sticks, and figure it out.
WonderWorld, maybe you can decipher the Google Patent for us, please?

There's a "2" in the mountains? Really?

It's suggested by the green highlighting, but it's pretty vague eh?
And folks, those aren't the Alps, they're the Rockies :-)
