Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

Basically this:

Steve Martin: If I had one wish that I could wish this holiday season, it would be that all the children to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. If I had two wishes I could make this holiday season, the first would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing in the spirit of harmony and peace. And the second would be for 30 million dollars a month to be given to me, tax-free in a Swiss bank account. You know, if I had three wishes I could make this holiday season, the first, of course, would be for all the children of the world to get together and sing, the second would be for the 30 million dollars every month to me, and the third would be for encompassing power over every living being in the entire universe. And if I had four wishes that I could make this holiday season, the first would be the crap about the kids definitely, the second would be for the 30 million, the third would be for all the power, and the fourth would be to set aside one month each year to have an extended 31-day orgasm, to be brought out slowly by Rosanna Arquette and that model Paulina-somebody, I can't think of her name. Of course my lovely wife can come too and she's behind me one hundred percent here, I guarantee it. Wait a minute, maybe the sex thing should be the first wish, so if I made that the first wish, because it could all go boom tomorrow, then what do you got, y'know? No, no, the kids, the kids singing would be great, that would be nice. But wait a minute, who am I kidding? They're not going to be able to get all those kids together. I mean, the logistics of the thing is impossible, more trouble than it's worth! So -- we reorganize! Here we go. First, the sex thing. We go with that. Second, the money. No, we got with the power second, then the money. And then the kids. Oh wait, oh jeez, I forgot about revenge against my enemies! Okay, I need revenge against all my enemies, they should die like pigs in hell! That would be my fourth wish. And, of course, my fifth wish would be for all the children of the world to join hands and sing together in the spirit of harmony and peace. Thank you everybody and Merry Christmas

Infinite wishes first of all.

Top goals would be ending pollution, ending hunger, ending exponential population growth, and ending war and violence everywhere.

#1) freedom to do anything I want (people will just let me do whatever I'm doing whether it be things like tearing downs alcoholic bars, smoking places, and vehicular factories (excepts for one that supplies emergencies vehicles and supply trucks for foods and whatnot))

#2) a variety of superpower such as unlimited generic telekinesis (ability to have telekinesis that just do things that I want it to do rather than just focusing on each and every step of the process), telepathic ability (reading people minds and communicating with them this way, would be very very useful for me since I'm deaf) (also with these power, chances are I'll be changing the world doing things like making the praries in Africa into farms and whatnot)

#3)the ability to create a infinite supply of anything out of a container (such as a infinite supply of water already inside of a wide mouth water bottle, just one of that would keep a 3rd world village alive (along with a food supply infinities)) (plus, imagine only needing a single rocket engine with a fuel infinities attached to it (along with air infinities and other stuffs) to send a large number of people to other planets)

P.S. dunno if you meant the fantasy kind of wishes or a more grounded type.

1. The ability to block negative thoughts. [edit] Sometimes negative thoughts lead to positive solutions. So I swap that for unbreakable bones/teeth.

2. The power of flight.

3. The ability to breathe underwater.

If I could have three wishes right now, being in a slightly selfish mood tonight...

(1) date PGS
(2) marry PGS
(3) happily ever after with PGS

Yes, I have a simple, one track mind.

Damn dude. If you had just wished for one big-ass beer, you would be good and still have wishes left!

Reminds me of my first day in College Freshman physics. Its almost the end of the lecture and the prof is discussing the metric system. He pulls out a beer mug and says, "this is about a liter". He pulls out another beer much that has to be able to contain at least a gallon and says, "this is about enough". End of lecture.

wtf is AWP?
wtf is BGS?

1) every ******, sadist, and vicious murderer still alive to branded with an "R" symbol on their faces, lose their testicles (preferably in a fight with an angry animal), and have their hands cut off. Yeah, that would be a nice start.

2) the ability to have total control over time (freezing, jumping, reversing.. the works)

3) the ability to morph myself

At least one of them, i would wish that the other wishes would come true. After all, if they don't come true they are just a wish, and most of us have a lot more than three.

A man's gotta have a strategy to take care of his friends, the world and himself:

1. That every Fooster's greatest wish comes true.
2. World peace (hey I'm a centerfold, gotta work that in)
3. A new wish a day, for life (which if I work it right might be a looooong time).

Being as I specified infinite wishes, I would also get Merton to come back. Foo has never been the same since he left.
