Which Fooster has the MOST Foo?

Is there a way to measure? Would a proctologist be of any help here?

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

Apparently, you pedal to the beat of a different drummer. Even so, here in January, we weren't talking about that kind of base layer.

I stepped in some Foo this morning. I was able to scrape most of it off of my shoe, so I don't think I have the most Foo.

Aha. But to get to the brain of a fooster, one needs a good proctologist. And a microscope.

And since Foo is a "Champagne Tastes/Beer Wallet sort of area (apologies to you Ti types who -ahem- slum hereabouts) Ideally we should maximize the bang -per- buck and go with someone who is both.


Ah-HEMpf!

I don't think I'm at level of some foosters, but I'm working on it.



But no matter how foo I try to be, I always end up crashing and burning.

Crashing and burning is a step up from Foo. Don't worry, you'll crash and burn your way down here in no time.
