Bob Talks About Thoof

Subcomandante Bob would like to briefly tell you about Thoof.com, which is a user-generated news and information service. The cool thing about Thoof is that its computers learn about what you are interested in and deliver news to you that you care about. Kinda creepy, but pretty cool, Bob thinks.

Thoof is a personalized news site that has social interaction features, and users figure out the value of submitted posts. Thoof also adds what it calls a "rank badge," and this tells visitors the popularity of a particular article as compared to other stories or articles that have been submitted to Thoof. This allows visitors to determine if a given link has caused other readers to rate highly the value of the linked material.

Bob is not sure what the word "Thoof" really means, and he spent several hours working on the origins of the word. Actually, he spent several hours drinking some 180-proof white lightning that one of his fellow residents at the Cherry Street Mission in Toledo cooked up in an abandoned house. Then he decided to come to a conclusion about the origin of the word "Thoof."

Except he passed out from his immoderate habits.

After he awoke, and launched his half-digested lunch all over the front seat of a rusted-out 1988 Dodge Caravan that also serves as a second home for his pal Mookie, Bob came to the conclusion that "Thoof" is a sound that has something to do with mixing cheap hooch with hot dogs. Over the course of the past few hours, Bob has "thoofed" in a number of socially-undesirable places, and people are beginning to give him that funny stare, the look that means Bob has something disgusting hanging in his four-day beard.
