Foobery by the numbers.

The oddest thing happened a year or so ago when I was reading the blog "Medium Large" by Cesco Marciuliano. He was talking about the first week he'd written dialogue for Sally Forth and he'd noticed something: he'd noticed that his predecessor had worked out a short-hand to speed up writing. As by way of example, the title character's trademark smirk is a Number 13.5. The reason that I mention this is that we could use much the same system to streamline discussing Foob. As by way of example, Elly's habit of jabbing a finger in her air and ranting could be known as a Number Four.

The reason for this is that it would save us a lot of time thinking about things if "Elly's face is frozen in the Muppet-Mouthed, Goggle-Eyed Frown of Existential Horror" were to become "Elly does Number Three." Also, it'd get us in synch with Lynn's love of repetitive devices if we compiled a greatest hits list.
