That horrid Google…On the prowl!

The Google BookIn 1913, Vincent Cartwright Vickers wrote The Google Book, a children’s book full of fanciful birds, including one called a “google”:

The sun is setting —
Can’t you hear
A something in the distance
Howl!!?

I wonder if it is —
Yes!! it is
That horrid Google
On the prowl!!!

Seems Google has been “on the prowl” for close to a century!
