Gah. Clarity. Waste of time, really. *sighs*

I meant, the hackers corrupted the acronym to use as the metasyntactic variable, which got broken in two, and a third element added, making Foo Bar Baz, because it could be applied in any program (that is the metasyntactic part), since all programs are FUBAR'd?

Or something.

actually, according to the bit dictionary.com quotes from the hacker dictionary, foo existed first of all, then fubar, then foobar, then i don't remember what happened but you probly got it right from there
