You realize when Botto comes back, the fun ends and all the positions will be filled by roadies, right?

IF he comes back. He's been overthrown, there's not a lot he can do. None of those roadies will come over to Foo - they don't even know it exists.

Ms. Gio is National Security Advisor because I trust her to watch out for me.

Artifice is Speaker of the House because she could take over for me if needed, and according to Wikipedia, the Speaker has the following job which I feel she is well qualified for:

"The speaker decides who may speak and has the powers to discipline members who break the procedures of the house."

I'm not. But botto underestimated me.

And any roadies who want to jump over to Foo to overthrow me will first need to post photos in the Men of Foo thread and be judged worthy of the task.

I'm pretty sure I did. Including a shot with me in a speedo.

But all this talk about overthrowing is a bit premature. How about my offer to do the necessary due diligence back on post #29?

Um .... nobody wants you to search.

I believe the Rules of Foo are:

1. Out of sight, out of mind

2. You snooze you lose
