"Things You Wouldn't Know If We Didn't Blog Intermittently."
I think your use of snopes as a reliable source was a mistake.https://www.kentuckyderby.com/
Post amended to delete the Derby comment. Thank you.
I think the whole premise of the story is dubious.https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20110111093900AAszfQT
Post deleted. Fell victim to an urban legend.Thanks for helping me clean up the blog.
The problem with the post was not necessarily using Snopes as a reliable source. The problem was not following the link "More Information About This Page" at the bottom.http://www.snopes.com/lost/false.aspIt is a pretty good object lesson on relying on a single source of information.
I get a lot of mileage out of that Lost Legends Snopes page. Mainly with people that like to say "you cant trust Snopes".
