Foon

Foon is a magical land that is connected to Earth through a magical portal behind a Burger King in Chicago.

The year in Foon changes at a different rate than ours: over the run of the podcast, Usidore has stated the current year as 482391, 482422, 483723, and 483794.

History

Origin

Foon was created by the three goddesses Foo, Ooo, and Oon. They made love and gave birth to six men who created the entire world.

Geography

The topology of Foon is constantly changing; new mountains appear all the time. The planet Foon is on is both round and flat since it looks round from above and flat from the sides. According to Usidore, Earth is about half the size of Foon.5. The denizens of the largest continent on Foon will sometimes use the term "Foon" to refer simply to the continent, which is sometimes a source of confusion. There are 27 seas in Foon.

Foon is flat, but was not always so.6

Climate

Foon has six seasons, four of which are the same as Earth's:

  • Winter
  • Blunder - characterized by 24 hour darkness
  • Spring
  • Summer
  • Vwishtash - a fire burns in the heavens, fireflakes fall from the sky and people build ashmen. Charms to prevent severe burns are available for purchase.
  • Fall

Snow in Foon is actually shards of glass. There is a story of a snowman that came to life when a magical plate of armor was put upon him; his name is "Glassy the Kill Man" and he's been killing kids ever since. Kids love the story.
