Google is a great tool for many things. You can use it to find websites when you’re too lazy to type “.com,” you can use it as a spell checker when you’re too lazy to remember that you no longer own a dictionary, and, of course, you can use it to find porn. But Google has another hidden feature that has only recently been uncovered. Google writes poems.

Yep, poems.

Google uses data from around the web to find the most frequent searches but it also tailors autocomplete to your personal preferences. Which means that everyone’s search results will be a little bit different. Like tiny snowflakes. How poetic.
