New York - Google - Penguin, Vicky, Sagan in Ballpit 1a (By Ryan Somma)

I spotted a picture on Flickr by Vicky Somma where the photographer said he took the picture in Google NYC's ball pit. For some reason, the office has large penguins in their ball pit.

This all sounds crazy.

(1) A huge corporate has a ball pit in their office?

(2) There are large stuffed penguins in the office.

(3) The penguins are in the ball pit with a mother and baby?

(4) I am writing about this here (see disclaimer below).

But all in all, I find it more interesting that there are Penguins in the office, more so than ball pits. Don't you?

Assuming why they are not having Panda as well?

Maybe instead of playing with stuffed animals they should be working on fixing their algorithm? I mean why is it that Google employees can play with stuffed animals at work while they send millions of webmasters in a panic with notices which required a reconsideration request a month ago but now we are told may be ignored? What is it Google? The whole playtime thing for Google employees might explain why they have been falling flat on their face lately.

Is it just me, or is the kid wearing a t-shirt with a Star Trek communicator on it? =)
