Today I learned that one of my 4x great-grandmothers was named Siri.
So if you ever get poor iPhone search results, it’s because they’re done by a dead Norwegian woman from the 1800s.
I honestly have no problem with Yahoo!. As others have pointed out, they actually know how to be a website and Flickr doesn’t seem to be plagued by weird outages so they’ve shown they can handle sites with strategically removed e’s.
Plus if it weren’t for Yahoo! I wouldn’t have the coda to my favorite baseball story.
My auntie works for a law firm in San Francisco and they have season tickets for the Oakland A’s. When my mom, brother, and I visited in ‘98, she got the tickets for us and we all went together. I don’t remember who the A’s were playing, but it was during the time when Jason Giambi was on the team because Aunt K said she liked his buns. I inadvertently embarrassed her because I honestly couldn’t understand what she was saying, so I made her repeat it a bunch of times.
The seats weren’t a fancy skybox or anything, we were sitting in normal stands, on the third base side. There were some Britishes in the row behind us, and one of them who knew baseball was explaining the game to his friends who weren’t familiar. (“So, the man gets three tries to hit it?” etc)
Later on, one of them saw an ad for Yahoo! Sports on the outfield wall and remarked: “Yahoo? Are we in some sort of cowboy town?”
So my family quoted that to each other for the rest of the trip ^_^
Bonus for Omahasnakes:
lol i dunno, I think I’m sitting on one
I can’t believe the choclote “beverage” Yoo-hoo™ bought tumblr.com and now we all have to drink Yoo-hoo™. Smh.
They’re going to make us all eat cold cuts!
