Google initiated a search caption challenge asking folks to write a cartoon caption. Evidently, this type of contest holds a long history, dating back at least to the 1930s. Google worked with artists like Matthew Diffee, Emily Flake, Christoph Niemann, Danny Shanahan and Jim Woodring, who created cartoons that place characters in unusual and interesting, yet funny, situations. Each cartoon shows the character doing a Google search. The task is to imagine what they'd be searching for at that moment, and describe it in a caption.
