[Snort-sigs] rule exclusion by content

Good morning,

I have this rule which generates way too many alerts in squert:

alert udp $EXTERNAL_NET 53 -> $HOME_NET any (msg:"PROTOCOL-DNS TMG 
Firewall Client long host entry exploit attempt"; sid:19187; gid:3; rev:7; 
classtype:attempted-user; reference:cve,2011-1889; 
metadata: engine shared, soid 3|19187, policy max-detect-ips drop;) 

we use OpenDNS in our environment and it seems like every single alert 
contains "opendns" somewhere in the content.  I'm sure there's a way to 
adjust or create another rule which negates the alert if the payload 
contains the word "opendns" but I've not seen any examples of this online. 
 Any help is appreciated :-)
