    Long time Foosters, I need your help.

    A "newer" Fooster just PM'd me asking who the heck Merton is. I figured it would be too long for me to explain. Perhaps we can all chime in...

    MERTON is virtually inexplicable.

    He created the craziest threads with the oddest questions you ever thought of. Then he'd act like he was annoyed if you didn't take it seriously.

    At first you thought he was the weirdest PITA you ever met, but he grew on you and after a while he didn't annoy you much anymore. You kinda liked him in all of his "oddness".

    I miss MERTON.

    Let's just sticky this thread, or start a "weclome to foo thread" with a disclaimer about the fact merton will be mentioned very often and without warning. So brace yourselve, etc, etc.

    I tried searching, but can't find it now. Maybe it was deleted.

    We had a few threads after MERTON left where we kinda made fun by asking "MERTON-like" questions. I think KrisPistofferson started the thread.

    One example I remember Kris asking was:
    "Is peanut butter poisonous to bears?"

    He decided foo wasn't worth his time anymore, and somehow all his posts and his acc was deleted. I think he asked a mod to erase him off the world.

    Mod could not do so, had to be an administrator.

    Why would he decide that?

    It was so he could "force" himself to put his time into school.

    Note how I said world. Foo is like the world, and being here is like LIFE. Foo is life. Leaving is like death. How could Merton do that. *cries*

    I'm not goofy or weird, Merton, however, is, for, sure.

    We need to think of a code name for Merton, it is blasphemy to speak his name. A drag queen name, and everytime you say his name in your head, you gotta do it in a feminine manly tone. Like Pat. He can be pat the drag queen. Yes.

    MERTON seemed like safe weird. He was fun.

    Pheard is more like scary weird.

    Merton posted pics of toilets.

    Pheard's pics need to be in the toilet.

    If you post pics of toilets, are you then one with the way of MERTON?

    He posted a sketch he made of a toilet bowl for art class, and posted it, asking our opinion of it because he thought the instructor gave him a lower mark than he deserved.

    He also posted pictures of his bike on many occasions, and always had some hare-brained scheme for "upgrading" it.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Merton was the embodiment of those thoughts we have but we would never admit we have. Merton had them and wallowed in them.

    He tried to sell all of his drawings in Foo. He needed money to fix his bike that the LBS's kept "messing up".

    I have not seen Merton or his posts, but from what I can tell, he was a Fooster who had no "filters" to tell him what was worth posting and what he should have kept to himself.
