back to article BOFH: The PFY Chronicles

It’s a bleak morning in Mission Control. Even the Boss’s normal expression of guilty ignorance is replaced by one that could almost be mistaken for loss... "Dead?" he asks quietly. "I'm afraid so," I respond. "But... he was doing so well." "He was, but then that dodgy life support machine switched itself off." "I thought …

At Last

At last 6 weeks into a new year and finally we get a new BOFH, literally. I have been expecting this for a few years now. Looking forward to how it pans out.

Ruh roh!

The rise of the PFY to a more ruthless BOFH.

However, one hopes for a Gordon Brittas style return from the grave for the original BOFH!

They are going to need that backhoe.

At the rate they are going through people.

Wouldn't be surprising that it becomes a pool vehicle.

So...

.. The PFY finally did it then been in training long enough!). Nice to see he's keeping the 'old' ways alive^H^H^H^H^Hgoing still. I'm sure the BOFH will live on through him, it's how he would've wanted to go.

gravestone for obvious reasons.

Wow...

Nobody with "upwards of 15k volts across the nipples" to save him this time. After weeks of speculation, an era ends.

I almost feel humbled.

Beer. Because it's what he would have wanted :)

PFY did for BOFH ! (and made sure of it in the ICU !) or is this the start of an error ?

Simon dead??

Say it isn't so.

This must be some previous agreement between the BOFH and the PFY to first milk money from the company for his death (hence the "widow" who may be BOFH in drag), get rid of anyone who knows the BOFH (expect lots of death, especially beancounters) so that the BOFH can be later hired again?

Would not be the first time he faked his own death.

Alternatively the death could be legitimate, as a final retribution by the PFY for years of torment, so that he can become the new BOFH?

...that for Simon to have gone this far, he must have some truly epic vengeance in mind.

Am I dreaming

Is there going to be a Bobby Ewing moment and this is all a dream?

Or is it shades of Reggie Perrin's friend and time to collect the compo.

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

2010 just wasn't the same without BOFH - My year has now officially started.

(And, as in a former life I was a backhoe operator, I LOLed at the mention - Brilliant!)

An interesting start to the new year; but one which somehow already looks decidedly final :(

WHAT?!!

This cannot possibly be right. SIMON DEAD?! I was hoping BOFH to IMPROVE my friday, not make it worse. Killing the Director made little to lift my spirits.

Unless this is setting up some cool back-from-the-afterlife episode. One can only hope.

spoiler alert

May I be the first to ask whether the BOFH really dead, or whether the PFY has persuaded his LUG to stage a fake funeral while the BOFH is on his annual pilgrimage?

Hate reading between the lines..

Is this our Illustrious BOFH's swansong? Hope not.

Firstly, I bought a cattleprod from him on his splendid advice for a "knock-down price" - as he strangely described it - and after a brief demonstration or two, I bought it at a mere €2000 and a "Ruby Murry - and as-much-lager-as he-can-drink".

(He told me it was good for reversing cowgirls - or something. I can only vaguely remember.).

Did notice he'd been AWOL for awhile - so I guess the PFY's gonna step into his shoes? Please, NOT the boss!!!

PFY finally getting the better of the BOFH?

It can't be true. I sense some truly epic and mephistopholean revenge finding its way towards the PFY a few episodes hence...
