I had no idea what metasyntactic meant before I looked it up after reading of this thread.


I will say that once I ate a giant tub of popcorn in 15 minutes during a film and shat out almost all of it in undigested form about 1 hour later in the pub.

Going forward H.S. Art developers should adopt poo and popcorn. I'll try to check code snippets for compliance but I hope you all will be vigilant.

The words foo and bar are good examples as they are used in over 330 Internet Engineering Task Force Requests for Comments, the documents which define foundational internet technologies like HTTP (web), TCP/IP, and email protocols.[1][2]

I always thought it was a naval term meaning “fucked up beyond all recognition” and it’s also a radio station.

I was going to say I didn’t know “foo” was a word unto itself, but then there are foo fighters aren’t there, and foo gees.
