Google, in 2015, did a very fancy Google Doodle to mark the 155th anniversary of the “Pony Express” — but did so on April 13.

That was not wrong or a mistake. Just that very Californian Google was being CA-centric.

April 13, 10 days from April 3, was when the mail was DELIVERED to California.

Got that. {SMILE}

I kid YOU NOT.

April Fool’s was over a fortnight ago.

Well this will show Sri Lankan’s where they are in Google’s food chain.
Not sure why this is SPECIFIC to Deutschland?
Don’t they grow asparagus in California too?
