The story of a metasyntactic variablePosted: August 25, 2005
I just found this (RFC3092) on the etymology of “Foo”. While I’m familiar with a few of the roots (such as WWII, “foo-fighters”, etc.), it was very interesting to find Robert Crumb mixed up in all this.
Being a reader, and an avid collector, of comics since I was in short pants, I have long since felt that, should you dig around long enough into any world event of the last half century, or longer, you would find Crumb, staring back at you, and he quietly paring his nails…
Or was that Chris Ware?
