Google announces motto change...

I just read a shocking news report: In the wake of its decision to censor its search results for the oppressive Chinese government, Google is changing its original corporate motto "Don't be evil."

The new motto, according to unnamed company sources, is: "Be semi-evil. Be quasi-evil. Be the margarine of evil. Be the Deit Coke of evil — just one calorie; not evil enough!"

"Be less evil than most of your competitors"

"Don't be evil as long as it's easy"

"Don't be evil*"
*Warning: This policy is US-only

"Evil government makes evil non-evil"

"Small evil isn't really evil"

"To be evil, or not to be evil. This is the question"

"White is a new black, realistic is a new non-evil"

"Don't be very evil"

"Be quite good"

"So what? We are less evil than Yahoo!"

"Censoring human rights groups in a totalitarian country is evil? Really? Holly crap, why nobody told us?! Larry, come here, we have to talk!"

"Be less evil than average*"
* You can calculate average evilness ratio by searching Google for "I'm evil" and "I'm not evil". It's 233000/50400, that is 4.6. So as long as your evil to non-evil ratio is less than 4.6 you are ok.
