Fooey

About to partake in a BarCamp so I decided to do a litte research on them. I eventually ended up reading "RFC 3092: Etymology of 'Foo'".

Page 2, paragraph 3 reads (emphases and misspelling mine),

In 1944-45, the term 'foo fighters' [FF] was in use by radar operators for the kind of mysterious or spurious trace that would later be called a UFO (the older term resurfaced in popular American usage in 1995 via the name of one of teh better grunge-rock bands [BFF]).
