12 hilarious everyday Google questions, illustrated by Irish artists

Irish illustrators raise money for Pieta House by drawing your weird and wonderful Google searches.

FROM SHOWER THOUGHTS to commute musings: Doodle My Google, an initiative on Twitter and Instagram encourages people to send their rogue online searches to be illustrated.

The project was set up by Paddy Thunder and Katie Liston, in May of this year. Speaking about Doodle My Google’s origins, Thunder told TheJournal.ie, “It all began with a highly questionable suggested search term popping up when using a friend’s laptop. This started a conversation about how funny search histories can be when taken out of context.

“Once we had the idea, we figured it would be nice to put it towards a good cause so we are now in the process of making an initial set of limited edition prints available to buy in aid of Pieta House.”

The premise is simple and open for all to get involved. Send a direct message on either social media platform or tag your search history with #DoodleMyGoogle.

So far, Doodle My Google has seen Irish illustrators including Fuchsia MacAree, Fatti Burke and Ruan Van Vliet doodle queries spanning Drake’s love-life and bruised posteriors.

1. ‘Is it safe to eat mouldy bread?’

2. ‘Happy birthday rabbit toasted sandwich’

3. ‘Octopus smart’

4. ‘Has Drake ever dated a regular girl?’

5. ‘Crispy bacon near me’

6. ‘Snoop Dogg narrating nature’

7. ‘Joan Burton boat’

8. ‘Hard bicycle saddle bruised ass’

9. ‘Will Eircode catch on’

10. ‘Trump Impersonator Olympics’

11. ‘Are pigs actually clean’

12. ‘Why does my cat massage me’
