The Power Of Google

Well for one thing it’s excellent for debunking bullshit stories like this from The Seattle Times:

Snohomish High School calls nickname derogatory; suspends teen for T-shirt
By Lynn Thompson

An item on the Snohomish School District’s Web site refers to the football team’s “SnoHo” traditions. And “Snoho Mojo” is both a headline in the school yearbook and the name of a local espresso stand.

But when Snohomish High senior Justin Patrick wore a T-shirt to school last month with the lettering “SNOHOS” across the front, it led to his suspension from school.

School officials say “Snohos” contains a slang term for prostitutes [ho] and is derogatory toward women.

Woah, what stellar logic school administrators have deployed. Clearly Ho-Ho’s must be banned from the school cafeteria, if they’re not already, in order to prevent females from being doubly offended. Jeez…

How prevalent is the usage of that notoriously offensive word “snohos?” Here’s what Google has to say:

Results 1 – 5 of 5 for “Snohos”

It’s listed on the vasts internets a mere 5 times? Hmmm I’m offended by that…
