Google Doodle celebrating the search giant's 15th birthday

It's simple. 10 hits. You hit the piñata, and the candy hits the ground. That's Google's devious offering for its 15th anniversary Doodle. Why devious? Because you can't stop at 10, man! You can't stop at 20! You just keep hitting that stupid piñata, watching the candy fall, vowing to best your top score again and again and again. Thank you soooooo much, Google. You almost cost me an entire day of actual real work. 

Almost. I scored 134 pieces of colorful candy before I checked into Google Doodle rehab.
