The great eskimo vocabulary hoax!
One of my journalism professors (yes, I studied broadcast journalism for a few years - yes, I wised up and graduated with a different degree) repeated the myth that Eskimos have umpteen different words for snow. They do not. More to the point - the essay debunking that myth was printed before I even entered college. One would think that paying over $10,000 a year would get me clued-in professors. One would think that, but it would not be true.
