"What do you know about social networking?" the Boss murmurs quietly one morning, as I'm putting the finishing touches on my espresso. "You mean social networking as in 'I and a group of mates would like to be able to publish our outrageous drinking activities'? Or 'The wife and I have recently separated and I'm looking to …
BOFH goes Web2.0. Guess that's the modern version of installing a hacked login script into user accounts - except getting creative with Facebook is (still) legal ;-)
But i have to admit, it doesn't beat stories like getting the user to put his pot plant ontop of his computer, connect to to the neon lights and water it real good.
Or have to user move the emergency exit signs away from the door and then turn off the lights and sound the fire alarm.
And truly elegant! Fantastic episode!
I think Rule #1 is don't drink coffee while reading this year's BOFH episodes.
Being an ordinary bloke from Bristol, makes me wonder if the PFY wasn't taking over established profiles too.. Would explain the tweaks on my FB profile!
Mine's the one with the PFY's little black book in the pocket.
OMG! Two episodes in less than 4 weeks? What's the world coming to??? I'm happy to see another episode... and the PHB (to steal a term from Dilbert) is getting his! Seems like the BOFH and the PFY Ride Again! Just like old times. Now, here's hoping for another episode in less than a month!
Nick said: That was laugh out loud funny - as in it made me actually laugh out loud, not just the "mildly amusing" which people usually mean by "laugh out loud funny".
Nick, your comment was "cackle out loud funny". As in, I read your comment, and I really did cackle. I don't know what anyone who has used that in any other context, and there's only a thousand Google results for "cackle out loud" (quoted), but whatever they mean, I probably didn't mean it.
"The management would like to reassure you that your nagging is almost never taken into consideration when editorial decisions are being made. "
Now you've done it. By saying "almost", you've given the enemy the one thing you never should - Hope.
Report to the computer room for reprogamming, the cattleprod is almost charged.
"...He'll meet someone as Candice or Lord Peter and use her/him to introduce all the other personalities, finally organising a date as Jerry."
This should be taught in schools, you know. What better way to warn naive youths of the dangers of the internet than to introduce them to the PFY?
I'm no "limey" but I'll give it a shot here. Use the syntax. Clearly, a "slapper"is a woman with a "morally-casual attitude" (I love that phrase) and quite low standards when it comes to male companionship. You know...the woman who thinks "acting ladylike" is just too much bother. Often seen in minimalist attire in and around nightspots.
Damn you, Mr Travaglia - a good installment but you've given away all my secrets! If everyone gets in on the muti-personna lark, how are we early adopters going to get enough gals to flit from Travelodge to Travelodge, from one sad deluded divorcee to another?
As to 'slapper', think plumper and jollier than 'slut' or 'trailer-trash' and probably aged 40+ - the word is usually preceded by 'old' (for instance: "What does Prince Charles see in that old slapper?")
BTW, a 'Welsh slapper' is usually a sheep.
Not even a little bit. But then I'm Bristolian with a Welsh grandfather so you obviously don't expect me to find it funny. After all, according to you I'm a loser with a leak fetish. Simon Travaglia: is that some sort of wop name or are we only allowed to insult Bristolians and the Welsh?
