In a regular expression "bar" will match "bar" while "[bar]" will match "b" or 
"a" or "r". Just don't use the square brackets.

(You should also use regular expression literals ( /bar/ instead of new 
RegExp("bar") ) as they avoid having to escape things for regex and then escape 
them again for the string.)
