A bit of an odd question, but if I wanted to search for the symbol ":" in Google, how would I go about doing that (and would it even be possible)?

I found this article (, but that's not what I'm looking for ... A search for [:] just gives you the word "colon", but what if I want to find instances of the ":" symbol itself?

My new inappropriate catchphrase: Vinegar, please!

Kevin Trudeau, mentionined in the Coral article, is all over my TV all the time nowadays. He settled with the FTC, I believe, and can no longer sell anything but books, so, of course, he's selling books.
