I laughed out loud at Freddie riding a bicycle, with bunnies hopping after him.

Oh, and "men singing" cracked me up, too.

First, take some valium. Second, DSMN is a far more original choice than, for instance, Boh Rhap, Champions, Love of My Life or Somebody To Love would have been. Some people (note that I mean you) will always find something to nag about. If you assert that "DSMN [is] the only Queen song people have ever heard of", I can only ask what it is you are smoking.

Canada's got it but not the US. Looks like we're stuck with the stupid flag all day ...

To the Americans:

"Our doodle celebrating Freddie's birthday can be seen around the world on September 5 and, out of respect for Labor Day, in the U.S. on September 6".

I live in Norway though, and we got it! ...but you'll get it tomorrow.

Grrrr...it's not on the USA Google Search page today.
Instead, we get a teeny tiny icon of a waving US flag - for Labor Day.
