* The animated version of ''WesternAnimation/TheBoondocks'' upgrades Robert "Granddad" Freeman's preference for corporal punishment using a belt to an actual fighting style that fans have referred to as "Belt Fu", with a talent for ensnaring objects and opponents with an ordinary men's belt that would make [[Main/IndianaJones Indiana Jones]] proud.

The term ''"Foo Fu"'' for this general phenomenon was coined JustForPun, and basically means the same as "X Fu" or "Whatever Fu". It comes from ''"Foo"'', a placeholder often used by programmers as a stand-in for whatever should be there instead (the technical term for this kind of placeholder is "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metasyntactic_variable Metasyntactic Variable]]"). Has nothing to do with [[Music/FooFighters fighting foo]].
