What do you think of communities changes their towns name to generate jobs?



On the search engine usually known as Google, users today are having their computer redirected to Topeka. The city of Topeka, Kan., has been wanting to change its name to Google, so Google decided to change its own name to Topeka.

In explaining the April Fools' Day change, the search engine says Google employees once known as "Googlers" will now be called "Topekers" or "Topekans."

Starbucks is getting in on the April first fun, too. The coffee giant announced on its company blog that there will soon be two new drink sizes. "Plenta" is a hefty 128 ounces, while "Micra" is a tiny two ounces. Starbucks suggests once a customer is finished with a Plenta drink, the cup can be used for a rain hat or a lampshade. It says a Micra cup can be used as a milk dish for kittens or a paper clip holder.
