LifeHacker made me aware of some amusing Google search pages in L33t, Klingon and Sveedish Chef (bork bork bork). I'm not sure if these really count as Easter Eggs as they are all listed on the main Google language tools page. Other cute versions include Elmer Fudd and Pig Latin.


Google does have an actual "official" Easter Egg page that's pretty cute.


And, of course, there's the classic Google search for French Military Victories, but that's a Googlebomb, not an Easter Egg



So what sort of Google Easter Eggs have you found?

Go to language tools in google and translate the following from English to Spanish:
"The girls mom is very nice".
Now copy the translated text and translate that back from Spanish to English and see what you get!!!!! Now what you think....

In the search bar, type "the answer to life, the universe, and everything" You have to have seen or read A Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy to get this one.

Try this (without the accented a) instead: "La mama de las muchachas es muy agradable"
i.e. mama, as in mamary gland. The trick only works if the accent gets killed by the copy/paste.
