According to my 6-year old daughter, the existence and availability of Choco Tacos is the most goddamn serious thing on the planet on the planet right now. How are you going to refute that? You can't. Because that's just the way it is. And if its true for my daughter, how true is it for many more 6 year old girls across the country, nay the WORLD?

Can it also be folded into an ice cream hat, or perhaps a brrrrrrrrrroach?

I generally don't eat stuff like that so even your clarification is foreign to me.

Here's a thought: Congress relies on the services of unpaid interns to do a lot of the work behind legislature. Imagine if a few of them started tweaking things here and there.  Or maybe they have.

So people really have nothing better to do than to scour all of Wikipedia looking for IP addresses that belong to federal buildings?

"has been edited six times by staffers at either the House of Representatives and the State Department,  during the workday (!!)"

So? A lot of these political staffers are unpaid interns, even if it was a paid employee, who cares. People often get free time in their workday. Talk about a slow news day.

Waffle cone folded into taco shape. Filled with vanilla ice cream with swirls of chocolate sauce. Topped with hardened chocolate shell and peanuts.

The waffle cone gets a little biatchewy somehow and it's absolutely divine and now I want like six.

If it read spaces then it would be trivial to get around the filter by inserting spaces. Don't worry, everyone knows what you meant.

What, precisely, does any of this tell us - besides the fact that, somewhere in the House of Representatives, someone's enjoying an esoteric inside joke about Senator Rayburn and Choco Tacos?

... which has now moved from the comparative internet backwater of Wikipedia history pages into actual search engines to be enshrined for all eternity thanks to an intrepid Washington Post reporter. Somewhere, a congressional staffer is laughing his or her ass off right now.

Because people used to get around the filter by inserting spaces between letters of words they know were filtered, so the filter was updated to ignore spaces when considering whether something should be hit by the filter or not. Obviously the more expansive the filter logic becomes, the more false positives it will throw up.

But you're forgetting the most important thing about the Choco Taco.  Everybody loves the Choco Taco.
