-All that's missing is the fork. Heh.
+Well hello there!
+
+This repository is meant to provide an example for "forking" a repository on GitHub.
+
+Creating a "fork" is producing a personal copy of someone else's project. Forks act as a sort of bridge between the original repository and your personal copy. You can submit *Pull Requests* to help make other people's projects better by offering your changes up to the original project. Forking is at the core of social coding at GitHub.
+
+For some more information on how to fork a repository, [check out our guide, "Fork a Repo"](https://help.github.com/articles/fork-a-repo). Thanks!
