July 30th, 2021 · 70 minutes

Poor Mona found herself sucked into the YouTube algorithm before the family vacation, and Andy takes a daycation of his own. We go through Google's "About This Result" feature, plus another feature that instantly deletes the last 15 minutes of your search history. Then, another entry into the Google Graveyard, but not before many emojis get a makeover. And finally, a few cutesy Olympic-themed games that are better than the real thing.
