Excel question: Need formula to COUNT cells WHERE text is NOT "foo" or "bar"

This would be so simple in SQL but I can't figure out the formula in Excel. Let's say I have one column whose entries are mostly "foo" and "bar", but also miscellaneous stuff like "tator", "fedora", and some blank cells. I want to group the other values into an "other" category, but I won't always be able to predict what they are.
This is a really small spreadsheet (less than 100 rows) so I don't want to bother with Access.
