Feeling hungry? Trendy? Wonderful? Google wants to know

The Google homepage is fairly simple. It has two main buttons — "Google Search" and "I'm Feeling lucky — and a text entry field. Now it has a little secret though: The "I'm Feeling Lucky" button can change to reflect various emotions.

A post on the Google Google+ page — say that three times fast — reveals that hovering your mouse over the "I'm Feeling Lucky" button will cause it spin to another emotion. Click and you'll wind up on a page related to that particular emotion.

"I'm Feeling Hungry" leads to Google Search results for restaurants nearby, "I'm Feeling Artistic" leads to a collection in the Google Art Project, "I'm Feeling Trendy" shows you hot searches on Google Trends, and so on.

No word on whether Google will add an "I'm Feeling Lost" option for those of us who constantly glance at Google Maps.
