    I seek a definition...

    Can someone tell me what a "Foo" is? Do I have one? Do I need one? If I do have one, do I need a wrench to replace it? Will it last the whole biking season? Does it affect my stand over height? Must I lube it?

The word foo itself has no meaning and is merely a commonly used logical representation that is used much like the letters 'X' and 'Y' in algebra.
    Foo has entered the English language as a neologism due to its popularity in describing concepts in computer science and is considered by many to be the canonical example of a metasyntactic variable. It is used extensively in computer programming examples and pseudocode.

    Foo is a state of mind, a way of being. Foo is an almost zen-like transcendence of all the shiat that is life. Foo is good medicine for a troubled soul.

    Foo is relaxation and an escape from anything that troubles you.

    Foo isn't a thing, it's a state of being. Zenlike without the tranquility.

    EDIT: Dayum vVV, ya beat me to it.

    Or a deadly poison for a perfectly healthy soul, depending on how you look at it.
