    I was particularly impressed that the Post used snot rocket correctly in the sentence "There’s such a thing as a “snot rocket,” which — well, look it up." Kudos to Angela Haupt, the journalist, who probably consulted the AP (About Phlegm) style guide.

    Likely the first use of the term in the Post in, well, all time.
