Replacing all "hello world!" suggestions with "cowabunga!" in my dev tutorials.
@SirSpencerWhat will you replace 'foo' and 'bar' with?
@Economic_Hitman hmmmm I don't know anything about foos or bars, at least as relates to code lol
foo and bar are used as variable names in examples, see also: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foobar .
- just for your information
@CSB @SirSpencer @Economic_Hitman Military acronym FUBAR; Fucked Up Beyond All Repair. In the 80's on the Commodore 64 there as a pirate import/crack group called FBR; Fucked Beyond Repair.
@blitzed @SirSpencer @Economic_Hitman yes and no
as "foobar" is spelled differently than FUBAR and "foo" and "bar" are used separately as variable name
but generally: yes, that's the origin
