I heard a good one last night.

The foo is like the worlds largest library with all the books on the floor (and 1 corporation in charge of the card catalog)...

What is foo?

Name foo correctly and then you get to start your own Footastic #*$!.

But there are plenty of people stacking books that interest them, so the corporation that controls cataloging to come along and piggy-back on their hard work.

Apparently the corporation is doing well selling 'Sponsored Catalogue Cards'.

Foo is largely a matter of expectation.

So... what's is Foo?

foo = food or fuel

PS: btw #*$! above = W_T_F (possibly the other abbreviation was on the auto edit list?)

haha, looks like you'll have to pick another abbreviation; it is in the "swear filter". :)

w_t_f also stands for Where's The Fire...

I think that might well be an official US Navy translation.

as in W_T_F Over?

Now it could become the official WebmasterWorld abbreviation that means What The Foo!

meanwhile, what's foo for you?

All you have to do is convince BT that it means "where's the fire". I'm sure he'll take it off the swear filter right away. ;)

Hmmmm . . . I have always based the origins of the term foo from WWII flyboys phrase, who experienced odd flashes of static electricity along and offboard the wingtips of their aircraft, most often explained as a variation on St. Elmo's Fire.

Of course a lot of superstition and legend goes along with All Things Airborne as well as afloat, so there are many legends that these anomalies were "something else" - gremlins, ghosts, or even aliens. The pilots who experienced these anomalies and bravely took to the air again became known as Foo Fighters which is where the Seattle band got it's name . . .

Urban Legend? It's all a bunch of foo anyway, one good pass across the Internet puts the foo next to the bar . . . .

in this world there's two kinds of people my friend - those with foo, and those who dig.

So what is foo?

Good Answer-but not the one. The line is actually a quote from one of the best "western" movies of all time...
