In the latest parody site to spoof the most popular search engine on the Web, the folks behind "Gizoogle" are attempting to give a Snoop Dogg spin to the Web. (Warning: Translations do feature adult language) The site works as a near carbon copy to the Google Web site, the exception being the "translation" feature that rewrite SERP's and cached pages into the gangsta rappin' language of popular rap star Snoop Dogg.

Taking a moment to Gizoogle my own name brought up the following translation from my Search Engine Guide bio page:

"Ms . Hollaz to the East Side. Laycock is also known fo' her writ'n on search engine optimizzles n hustla search issues . Yippie yo, you can't see my flow. She served as tha Web Search Guide at 'bout.com from Novemba of 2002 thru Jizzle of 2004 to increase tha peace. Recognized in tha online forum communizzles as "thejenn," she serves as tha Forum Administrizzles fo' tha JimWorld Search Engine Perpetratin' forums if you gots a paper stack."

According to the Gizoogle site, the engine was created as a tribute to Snoop Dogg himself by fans of the rapper/actor. How long the site will remain active once Google's lawyers get on the ball remains to be seen, but in the meantime, searchers around the Web are having fun playing with S-to-tha-izzearch Snoop Dogg style.
