Google Falafel Doodle Has Totally Confused The Internet

Google Falafel Doodle Has Totally Confused The Internet

These days it's hard to browse the internet without being greeted with bad news and uncertainty. Will we crash out of Europe? Will Boris become PM? Are we actually living in a dystopian society or is this just a terrible dream?

This could be due to the rise in veganism over the past few years, with it being a tasty option that could tempt even the most devoted meat eaters. It's easy to see why these little balls of plant protein are quickly becoming a staple in the millennial diet.

Google Doodle themselves have raised a valid question:






I guess that raises the question - do we even need a reason to look at a cute video of a falafel? Sometimes it's nice to look at something cute on the internet like the good old days. Remember when we mainly spent our time looking at pictures of cats?
