The Googlebird

"The Google Story," by David A. Vise and Mark Malseed, describes the lava lamps, AstroTurf, beach volleyball, celebrity-caliber fried chicken and touch-pad-controlled toilets that have given Google's cloistered Googleplex campus in Mountain View, Calif., its much-vaunted Peter Pan atmosphere.
Whoa, Janet Maslin! That's waaaaaay too much sentence for me. I will leave the toilets aside and forgive the awkwardness of "Googleplex campus." But are we really supposed to know what the fuck "celebrity-caliber fried chicken" is? If chicken really were measured in calibers, what would a Hilary Duff bird rate? Juicier than a Liberace? Fresher than a Rosie O'Donnell?

(If you really want to know, here's the answer, a recipe they call "Chicken a la The King" over at the Googleplex.)
