Ask.com Ruins Cinco de Mayo

Ask.com Cinco "do" Mayo

Ok, so Ask.com didn’t really ruin Cinco de Mayo, but they ruined the spelling of it. On their homepage, they’ve misspelled the Mexican holiday as Cinco do Mayo. Only one letter off but that’s enough to have people like me out there putting up blog posts about it. Maybe Ask.com should do this all the time, that way they can get more traffic. Really though, something on the home page of a search engine should be spell checked much more closely.
