Topeka, Kansas Unofficially Renamed "Google" 7

Posted by samzenpus
from the statue-of-liberty-insurance dept.
Mayor Bill Bunten issued a proclamation Monday that Topeka shall be referred to as "Google, Kansas - the capital city of fiber optics," for a period of one month. Bunten says the proclamation is mostly for fun, but that he hopes it will put Topeka on top of the list of cities vying for Google's fiber optics. I wonder what it would take to get Google to buy Detroit?

  • How much would we have to pay Google to take Detroit?

    (I live in Michigan, so I can make this sad joke.)

  • ...Bad jokes all month long about perverts in Topeka?
    ...Lawsuits from an unamused Google for unauthorized use of their trademark?

    This could go a couple of different ways... but in any case, I predict the bad jokes.

"We don't care. We don't have to. We're the Phone Company."
