The whole world in mourning......
A terrible tradgedy.
A drink in rememberance!
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 …
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?
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)
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've spent the last 6 weeks thinking the BOFH was dead. Today I finally see with joy that the BOFH is alive and well... only to discover the BOFH is dead! my mind boggles...
In any case I raise my beer in honor to the departed, and I propose a toast for the self appointed new BOFH... may he be as ruthless and entertaining as the last one (and may he visit El Reg every 15 days and not every 6 weeks...)
