click for full sizeStarting on June 12th and likely through July 13th, a full month, Google will be showcasing tons of different Google Logos, Doodles, for the World Cup. In fact, they may even change throughout the day, depending on who is playing who and at what time.

So far, we had 14 Doodles in 6 days, that is clearly two Doodles a day. At this rate, we can expect to have over 60 Doodles in a 30 day period or so!

Many searchers are feeling Doodle fatigue - are you?

Here are some complaints from the Google Web Search Help forums:

Can we move on? The soccer doodle is getting really old -- gives new meaning to the term "yesterday's news." There are a LOT of people who aren't soccer fans. How long will you monopolize everyone's browser with this game?

I could NOT agree more with you. Besides the fact the doodles are FIFA-related (which I also couldn't care less about), these doodles are actually TACKY. They look like they're done by a first-year animator learning Flash. The doodles have moved from being creative inspiration to tiresome and mundane predictability. Honestly, Google needs to severely downsize the Doodle thing because it's getting stupid. Instead they should have one maybe once every three months or something, and make it special.

The complaints go on... But I suspect most enjoy the Doodles over hating them.

Here are the Doodles we have thus far:
