If you know what Fnord is, you already know too much.

It's from the Steve Jackson card game Illuminati, and is the secret
conspiracy car manufacturing organization. Many cards in the game have
names you would recognize that are different from the authentic names
for legal reasons, such as the group "empty vee" and "fnord"
