GOOGLE, Kan. (CBS/AP) — Topeka’s mayor says the city shall temporarily be referred to as “Google, Kansas – the capital city of fiber optics,” in an effort to persuade the Internet giant to test an ultra-fast connection in the state capital.

Mayor Bill Bunten issued the proclamation Monday after no city council members objected to the month-long change.

This is pretty pretty shameless. More shameless than a republican admitting that global warming is real. Seriously Kansas, your internet is not fast enough. Do you really NEED to be able to download 10 TB of porn in 5 seconds?

Next, Birmingham, Alabama will be changing its name to Pepsi in order to attract young people to its state. (Seriously, who would live there except an old, confused person?)
