The Google Doodle for Valentine’s day is out. It is a combined tribute to Valentines day and George Ferris, the inventor of the Ferris wheel whose birthday happens to be Feb 14th.

So what does the doodle show? At every click of the love button, images of 2 animals in love pop up on the Ferris wheel and then they are shown going on dates. This covers all kinds of dates, the fun ones, the really quiet romantic ones and even the ones where one of the dates feels it is a disaster. It is a long running doodle.

But the last image is a nod to the single life. The last image is of a single animal. There is no animal shown on the corresponding ferris wheel and the thought bubble of the single animal shows a television. The next image shows him/her happily curled up on the couch with their television set. Though a slightly cliched representation of the single life, full marks to Google to atleast have shown a single person on Valentines. Good fun 🙂
