Fookin Bar. Fish

I hate foo, and I hate bar.

These things provide no information and do not contribute to understanding the context in which these identifiers are placeholder.

Please use fish, and fish related nomenclature from now on.

The benefit of fish is twofold:

  1. Fish are real, and can demonstrate existence amongst various conceptual plains. For example: fish, fish_var, fishy
  2. No software has, or will ever be written for or about fish. Fish is the perfect example domain in which to demonstrate and explicate.


No foo, no bar. Please use fish instead.


This post is complete nonsense. There is actually a common shell software called fish. Who would have thought?
