Foo happily welcomes two new additions to his Foo family. Meet Egg (left), a lovely little girl, who will be traveling to Mexico this summer to study Spanish and Mexican culture. And meet Yung, a rompin' stompin' little Foo boy, who will be traveling to Kansas this summer to study World War II literature. We wish them safe travels and happy studies.

Foo wanted to show you what really drew him to come look at the metal sculptures. The first one, really held the key to his heart.
With cherries on top? Foo filled his cherry craving when he saw these enormous cherries dangling from a car sculpture. Too bad they left metal shavings in his teeth.
Foo excitedly led the charge against the rust-inflicting raindrop warriors with his horde of metal minions following in his wake. Little? Yes. Intimidating? Very much. And the minions were kind of scary, too.
At the world's largest scrap metal art showing, Foo came across some pretty scary looking, enormous creatures.
Foo really wanted to ride the real baby African elephant, but he (the elephant) was just too intimidated to let that happen, so Foo settled for observing from above and riding the fake one. It was still cool.
Foo did his very best to find the right place for him at the circus. He thought first about being a Fooman cannonball, but the gunpowder made him sneeze and black is just not his color.
Next, he tried being a clown, but he hated the yellow checkerboard costume.
He eventually found a clown outfit more his style, but although he looks rather dashing in stripes, he really didn't think the clowning life was the best fit for him.
Foo really threw himself into circus life and dressed the part after finding his uncle Gold Foo who DID join the circus!
Foo really wanted to join the circus, so he journeyed to Circus World in Baraboo, WI.
Although it looks like a mini deer, the gigantic creature was going to be a tasty vittle for yumming the tummy, but it turned and ran and it turned out to be too fast and furry-ous.

Foo really wanted to act upon the stage again, so he took a trip to the Krannert Center in Urbana, IL.
The battle was fierce and mightily fought, but as the two regaled warriors (the Foo of the Road and the Squirrel of the Quad) turned to go, they knew they had a respect for each other that would be heralded in song.
Foo journeyed to the Quad at U of I and really wanted to hear what was going on at the other end.
Foo was hoping to find his love for all time at the famed Eternal Flame on the University of Illinois quad. Sadly, the only thing he found was a creepy spider, and he wasn't about to kiss that.
