Fun Facts

  • Beaver pushed the computer mouse off the side of the desk between the third and fourth frames.

Creator's note: That stupid mouse is always getting in the way. I usually throw it on the floor myself between panels 3 and 4.

  • James had to ask his girlfriend what the colors of Google were.

Creator's note: she is a 'hot tamale'

  • Both Beaver and Steve are either right-handed or ambidextrous. Beaver can type with six fingers total (and not "pecking" at the keyboard, one finger at a time).

Creator's note: lefties are not to be trusted.

  • Beaver and Steve share a computer.

Creator's note: Steve has his own computer, but it is full of jam.

Creator's note: It was registered by a reader after I made the comic. Diabolical!
Someone else's note: Man, this is HornyManatee.com all over again!

  • Beaver and Steve live in the United States, since google.co.uk has a UK under Google, whereas the US Google site has no such addition.

Creator's note: FALSE: Beaver and Steve live in New Malden. The 'UK' did not appear because it is imaginary google, which has the word 'imaginary' above the word 'google' instead.

  • The caret is improperly shown in the search field. The caret is only sideways in a DOS prompt; in Windows the caret is shown as an I-beam.

Creator's note: imaginary internet has a horizontal caret. Because it is imaginary.
