I always quietly called him Bobling. There again I am of a certain age .
Maybe a thread and then a poll for his official unofficial BE SL moniker.

One of our chocolate Labradors is called Bob. He is, quite simply, the doziest dog in the entire world.

I'm sure there's no connection with the name.

I value his post and thread . Bob does too.
Not at all. What it is is something called humour! You know that emotion which seems to evade sanctimonious people.

Much as I dislike his Daily Fail attitudes & views I am with KJMW on this one.

To me his post was a clear example of the once legendary (but fast disappearing) British "banter" - however his mistake was not attaching one of the dreaded emoticons to signify his intent - a lesson I learnt a while back!

Moving on, my thanks also to Bevs, particularly for her help & advice some months ago - hard act to follow!

Given the trend for nicknames for the new appointee - "SpongeBob Square pants"?

As far as I am concerned Bob will always be just Bob.

His Bobbisms are legendary.

FWIW I took KJMW’s remarks to be humour, which seems to have backfired.

OK, no worries. It isn't a high horse, it's more of a small shaggy pony that startles easily due to the random acts of personal rudeness that have characterized so many threads in TIO. As I said, it has probably made me tone deaf in some cases. If it was meant as a joke, then a joke it is and you have my apologies.
