What the Foo?

I'm a n00b just poking around. I heard that the Foo forum and the Foo dwellers was the thing to check out.

Can anyone fill me in on the origins of the Foo? What's the deal with the Foo?
Or am I a 'foo' for asking (as in "I pity the foo!").

P.S. any of you kids here in Denvah, it's a BEAUTIFUL day for a ride. See you out there.

We could tell you what it means, but then - well, we can't even tell you what we would have to do to you...

Chipcom has a conscience? I rather doubt the helmet police on A & S think so.

Wait...this kid rides? Doesn't that automatically disqualify him from Foo?


Where's that fine print...It's around her somewhere.

Urm. You really don't want to handshake in Foo too much. Especially with Explody Pup and jsharr.

But welcome to Foo.

Foo is, most simply put, good medicine.

Chipcom stole something? Okay. In some other thread a few weeks ago, there was a discussion of Chipcom's sexual orientation, leading to the supposition that he was, in fact, gay. So, by an exercise of logic, since Chip stole something, and Chip is gay, that means that what Chip stole is gay.

I mean, it stands to reason, don't it??
