    New sign for the office

    I was given a sign last week for my birthday, intended for the office door but I can't put it up unless I can think of an alternative for the acronym, but both the NM and myself have drawn a blank.

    The sign reads: "B.O.F.H. Headquarters"

    Any (work safe) ideas that I could tell people that it means?

    Thanks in advance.

    PS. The School Business Manager is the one to suggest that I put it up, so no trouble on that front.

  2. Thanks to Sephiroth from:

    I like that!

    Mine is currently attached to the side of the shelf facing me and away from the door, but it would be good to have it in full view.

    A few years ago the kids in DT made a plaque for my door saying "[myname] is GOD."

    I liked it so much I put it up but a few weeks later the RE Dept made me take it down!!!!
