3 thoughts on “The Google

  1. Curiously, my father talked like this for decades before Google appeared. He would compulsively put a “the” in front of things that normally don’t carry it. “The Yahoo” did indeed come up at one point.

  2. Nearly everyone who lives in North East Tennessee refers to Wal-Mart as “the Wal-Mart,” and the place they work at as “the “insert name of employer here.”” For instance if you work at Eastman Chemical Plant it is refered to as “the Eastman.” I grew up in Knoxville, TN and people do not speak that way there so it may be specific to very specific regions of the US.
