"Holding the ICICI Bank guilty of "unfair trade practice," the Commission termed such miscreants as "yahoos" and said they are boorish and a brutal lout (sic), who care a fig for legal and judicial authorities, including the Supreme Court."Unless you're an avid reader of Swift or a quizzer who has encountered this before, you are unlikely to know that "yahoo" can refer to a member of a tribe that Gulliver encounters during his travels. As the wikipedia article on the topic notes that the tribesmen are "vile and savage creatures, filthy and with unpleasant habits". It's unusual to see this usage, especially given that in this WWW age, the ! has completely taken over. One linguistic point for the Commission.
