[put at-character here]George: I forgot to check the its URL, and I couldn't reproduce it, sorry.

I first thought it was a bug with the Les Paul doodle or something related to my query (cf. http://blogoscoped.com/archive/2008-06-17-n27.html). I have no idea what it is.

I think it is the colors of a flag for the gay and lesbian movement.

Apparently June 2010 was lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender pride month. Perhaps it is again this year.

Well, in the past it was Gay, Lesbian, etc. Not working now though.
