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 …
The whole world in mourning......
A terrible tradgedy.
A drink in rememberance!
<insert laugh track here>
Hahah. Nice one.
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.
The BOFH is dead
Long live the BOFH.
Hooray. BOFH Returns - Sort of
The BOFH is dead!
Long live the BOFH!
To quote that other bastion of English bastardy...
The BOFH is _Probably_ Dead, Long Live the BOFH!
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!
Goodnight, sweet Bastard...
...and may a flock of angels sing thee to thy rest.
...I have to consider this extremely unlikely.
Hmmm, PFY in charge?
but then Simon has returned from the dead before.
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.
.. 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.
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 ?
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?
I doubt it...
BOFH is dead. Long live the BOFH!
Did you really kill BOFH i just cant believe it.
That's a backhoe attached to a tractor...
He can't be dead. He must just be in the shower! Wake up PFY, wake up.
Say it ain't so, is this the new breed BOFH for the next generation?
Or some life insurance scam by the old BOFH?
Say it ain't so. It's an insurance scam? A dodge? A wheeze....?
(nice to have you back though, I was starting to think it was no more....)
I can't help but think...
...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.
Sorry- not swallowing that one...
he's going to turn up in the shower at the end of the series isn't he.
Woah woah woah
Simon's dead?? As in, actually dead? Not hanging-onto-a-misplaced-Cat5-bundle-in-a-riser dead?
What have you done with the real Simon! Sarah, Im looking at you!
It seems that PFY
is the master now.
But ... but .... but .... You can't ... he can't be ....
I was starting to think we weren't getting BOFH this year...
this has to be
a dream sequence? surely the BOFH can't be dead?
or some sort of scam?
>ToDo: Insert Appropriate Title Here<
Oh No!! Simon Dead!! This can't be happening! Thanks for the laughs old friend, you'll be missed.
*A Pint, In memory of a legend!
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 :(
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.
Not after all this time since his early days in the newsgroups.
This has got to be smoe sneaky bofh ish plan
Mind you did I in fact didnt I recall a B.O In Hell a very long time ago or was that just my alchohol hazed student days playing tricks on me.
WTF because it's now bugging me where Ifirst read BOFH (Nutworks rings a bell)
...see the body?
I was getting worried for a while - BOFH depravation was kicking in...
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?
It's just a cunning ploy to get free beer.
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!!!
I don't think so....
The death of the BOFH?!
Say it ain't so!
Will there be a Jason Vorhees style resurrection? The BOFH demands vengeance!
Suspect more to this story...
...than meets the eye.
Look forward to next installment which I hope will not be as long in coming
BOFH cannot die - he just comes back meaner!
I for one…
…welcome our new pimply-faced overlord.
It cannot be true!
Simon? Our BOFH? Dead?!?
This has got to be a windup!
On a side note nice episode.
Zombie BOFH neeeds braaaaaaainssssssss
To spend the afterlife wandering PHB- and user-lands hungry for brains. That WOULD be hell.
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...
