Foo

The second fannish Ghod, from the 1930s. Except in Melvinism, FooFoo (and Foo is short for FooFoo as Ghu is short for GhuGhu, the first fannish Ghod) is embodied on earth as Jack Speer, author of the first Fancyclopedia. The holy color of Foo is black, as Foo was a ghod of mimeography. See also The Great Spider, Bheer, Melvin, Ghu and Roscoe.

from Fancyclopedia 2
(1) While "Foo" is synonymous with FooFoo, and always capitalized by loyal followers [and dutiful Rosconian lexicographers — RE], "foo" is a common word to be used for whatever part of speech is convenient. "A foo more days for to tote the weary load", "foothful foorever", "yours fooly", etc. These foo-proverbs are a chief source of Fooist theology; the Great Source of course is the Writings of the Prophet, Bill Holman creator of the Sacred Foo-Cat [in the comic strip "Smoky Stover"] but other proverbs which suggest themselves, and are in harmony with preexistent teachings, may be trusted.

(2) As a nickname, Th' Ol' Foo was E Everett Evans; Th' Youn' ditto his daughter Jonne.

from Fancyclopedia 2 Supplement ca. 1960:
Sneary got "Foo-blue" from Jack Speer, and on this basis assumed it to be FooFoo's official color. 'Tain't, really.

While "Foo" is Synonymous with Foo-Foo, and always to be Capitalized, "foo" is a common word, to be used for whatever part of speech is convenient. "A foo more days for to tote the weary load", "foothful foorever", "yours fooly", etc. These foo-proverbs are the chide source of Foodom's theology; the Great Source of course is the writings of the Profet, Bill Holman, creator of the Sacred Foo-Cat, but other proverbs which suggest themselves, and are in general harmony with preexistent teachings, may be trusted.
