Google Cheese Logo Marie Harel

Today on Google's home page is a special Google logo, a Doodle, for the 256th birthday of Marie Harel. Marie Harel was the first to make a camembert, which was in 1791. The Doodle on Google's home page takes you through the several steps on how to make the soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese.

The interesting thing is that animal activists are supposedly upset about the Doodle. There is a thread in the Google Web Search Help forums with a furious message from one of them that reads:

Cows don't joyfully carry a bucket up an idyllic hillside with a lovely young maid so they can be milked and their milk made into cheese. If google's content creators aren't aware of the horrific standard living conditions that factory farming inflicts upon dairy cows, perhaps a little bit of research is in order before making absurdly ignorant cartoons about it?

Google wrote on their Doodle description:

Our Doodle celebrates Harel’s 256th birthday with a slideshow that illustrates how camembert is made, step by step. It's drawn in a charming, nostalgic style reminiscent of early 20th-century French poster artists, such as Hervé Morvan and Raymond Savignac.

You can play with the Doodle slides over here.
