It's the the oldest trick in the the book, but it works, which is why it's still in the the book. See also Schools.

If you are writing an essay, the word "the" does not count. Only 4-5+ letter words count. I'm trying not to ruin your fun, but no joke my friends call me Logic Fart.

logicfart- the the word count tool counts every word. it doesnt count all the the letters in each word to make sure the the word contains 4+ letters and it doesnt NOT count the the word "the" and other shorter words. no school or teacher i have encountered used the the rule you mentioned.

... But then you'll get marks taken off for grammar/spelling/etc for writing the word "the" twice.
