    A modest proposal...

    I have noticed that many of the sub-forums have designed and sold jerseys that reflect the spirit of that group. The 50+ and the Clydesdale & Athena groups each have their own jersey.

    Isn't it about time that the Foo group have a jersey of its own?

    Given the gassy, and often bloated (but always delicious), nature of many of the posts in Foo, I would like to propose the following jersey for this group:





    What do you all think?

    What would you suggest?

    Needs ice cream, bass, a partially assembled Hyundai 4 cyl on a kitchen table, or a RC copter.

    How about the whole cow?

    Might help cover the ice cream angle at the same time.

    For the nerds in Foo, we have to include the number 3840. 3840 in Decimal = F00 in Hexidecimal.

    That or do the Hex to Binary conversion and end up with 111100000000

    3840 = F00 = 111100000000.

    I think BF would be sued by the poster formerly known as Mr. Beanz.

    Besides... I think Foo would be better represented by cheese.

    Formerly known?

    How about cheese and beans.

    I like that! Can frijoles somehow include delicious bass?

    The last time there was a Foo jersey was in 2008 ... I think. Although I'm pretty sure the 'couch' shirt became the unofficial foo shirt for a while.

    I have always been a fan of Swift's writing. Maybe that is what inspired the title.

    Or maybe it is the fact that my grown children will soon eat me into the poor house.

    in keeping with the title theme, a jersey with some goya on it would also work.

    It must be drawn with MS Paint using stick figures.

    And there should be a squirrel photochopped in somewhere.
