Big Fat Obnoxious Boss’ name is an anagram for Donald Trump; is he the boss?
FOX’s My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss debuted last night and revealed its forthcoming twist: There’s a real mogul making the firing decisions, and his or her identity will be revealed later in the season. Could that boss be Donald Trump, whose Apprentice persona is clearly a model for Mr. N. Paul Todd?
It seems unlikely until you consider that the fake boss’ full name is an anagram for Donald Trump. “Jumble the letters in My Big Fat Obnoxious Boss CEO Mr. N. Paul Todd’s name and you get Donald Trump,” The Winnipeg Sun’s Pat St. Germain writes. Then again, “Mr. N. Paul Todd” also rearranges to form “Old Dr. Nut Map.” Curious indeed. And “Donald Trump” rearranges to form “There’s no freakin’ way I’d do some crappy FOX knock-off of my series, the number one show on television.”
