Eskimos have 23 words for snow

Actually, they have 24 words for "dumb white person."

... and civil engineers have 23 words for bridge.

This is just a small contribution towards debunking this myth, one I've had to listen to so often at those ritual re-education seminars that white people are required to attend from time to time to expiate our guilt at being responsible for all, yes, all of the evil in the world.

For some real rebuttal and some information on the marvels of the real Eskimo (Inuit) language see Language Log
