When it's foobar use the "FUBar"

Reading up on Python programming I've come across many examples where the programmer at a loss for variable names to use in the generic example uses: foo, bar, and foobar.

Wikipedia goes into the many relations including the military origins of FUBAR and SNAFU. Then of course there's the Stanley "FUBar" (Functional Utility Bar).
