SEARCH LOLZ: Internal Memes From Googlers Leaked (And Some Are Rather Damning)

Popular social news site BuzzFeed, has uncovered a stash of images that allegedly leaked from an internal meme generator within Google intranet. The majority of the images appear to be pro-Google and rib at rivals Facebook, Yahoo! and former Google exec Marissa Mayer.

All of the images were sent in from a tipster who stated that they were from “memegen,” a meme generator found within Moma, the Google intranet.  Buzzfeed pointed out that a few Googlers have mentioned memegen previously in social media.

The majority of the memes were in good clean fun and most touted Google’s services. However, two of the alleged images actually seemed quite troublesome and shed some light as to what Googlers really thought about the company. One criticized the Google+ification of the company that echoed statements accidentally released by a developer and echoed by a departing engineer. This blurry meme reads “It’s not you I hate, Facebook … I hate what Google’s become because of you.”:

Another alleged image compares public perception of Google versus reality. A reality that show a cobbled together machine comprised of a plethora of different parts. This received over 800 votes. Yikes.

To see all to alleged Google internal memes, head over to BuzzFeed. All images courtesy of BuzzFeed.
