back to article BOFH: One flew over the PFY's nest

"He's what I refer to as a... megalotechno," the psychiatrist explains happily to me. "Completely devoted to IT - it's so rare to capture one alive. We've tried to study him of course but he's much too geeky for our standardised aptitude tests." "Mmm," I murmur non-committally, following him through pale green corridors and …

On a completely unrelated note, we've just discovered that one of the devs here has never heard of goatse.

I don't think he'll be clicking on any links we send him today...

His pulse never got over 75, not even when he subscribed everyone on the staff contacts list to several porn and gambling mailing lists. AND he still managed to finish the kebab...

Hahaha - I *live* for this sort of humour. Brilliant, just brilliant.

I was wondering what he would do with the fava beans quote — a play on java beans perhaps?

Well done Simon for a great installment!

Where did he install it and do you have to pay to visit?

(It's a slow morning, GOG is running a very slow sale...)

But fava beans are the Merkin name for broad beans, not kidney beans.

I'm just confused as to why Simon let PFY get out instead of sabotaging his escape plan and getting him put on the experimental Invasive Electrotherapy program as per established standard procedure. Must be bored at work or something.

More likely saving that for the PHB.

Excellent.

The only pseudopod in the brain-stem for me is the unbelievability of a techo-aware psychologist.

VPN's and psychology just do not mix.

Hmm what can I say, twisted humor at it's best. The PFY is mentally unstable so was waiting on a "shrink" episode and this was a good one.. Great way to start my day :D..

Heh, the PFY as Hannibal Lector. Brilliantly done. I almost feel sorry for the shrink. Almost.

Well where else would you go

When your flat is being painted? Sounds logical to me.

Fridays are becoming more complete with every BOFH story.

Next week PHB swallows his tongue.

Admit it, the whole schtick was built round:

'You still wake up sometimes don't you? In the dark...'

'Yes.'

'And hear the screaming of the fans'

Marvelous stuff keep it up...

Wrong Title

Hilarious, but it should have been called "Silence of the Fans"

Isn't checking into a psych ward while your flat's being painted a little extreme? Sure, it's free room and board and they got to extract a hundred from the poor headshrink, but I'd think the week's worth of inconvenience wouldn't be worth it.

No, there was an ulterior motive at work here. Clearly, this was all about ruining the shrink's week. Revengeance is a dish best served tepid, after all.

RE: A little too extreme?

"And besides, about four weeks ago you pushed in front of us at a coffee shop, thinking we didn't notice."

Seems good enough a reason for me...
