It never ceases to amaze me, the number of people who are simply closed off to all of the signs resplendent in Boj. No-one wants to accept what’s happening! Some people just aren’t ready to accept the truth, but this is the truth and it’s there whether you want it to be or not! Delusion is a happy state to be in, but if truth is more important to you than comfort, then read on. If not you can always pretend that no-one was ever questioning your happy state of affairs and go back to candy crush.
Let me peel back the layers of the onion that is Boj. Each layer a structure of lies designed to mislead those unfortunate enough to examine them. Boj is a backwards onion! With each layer you peel away, the onion gets less fresh and appealing as we get closer to the source of the corruption. The true reason that the layers are there, and the secret that they’re trying to hide. Each episode takes you further from the centre, but friends, I’m slicing right through the middle and I’m taking you with me!
The character of Boj is an adult telling stories about his life when he was a child. This is obvious and indisputable once you consider a very key point of evidence. Boj is constantly digging holes, and arriving in peoples gardens and occasionally inside their houses. Obviously if someone was digging holes into your garden/house you might be a little cross, but no matter who it is who owns the new mole hill/death trap, they are always happy to see Boj. This would never happen! Of course the land owner is going to tell Boj to stop mucking up their garden, but adult Boj doesn’t recount this point in his story. Either he doesn’t because he wants to make himself look better in the story, or he’s completely oblivious to criticism. Either one can point towards a narcissistic personality disorder, which will only become more apparent as we go on. Thus we can prove that the episodes of Boj are a retelling from Boj’s perspective at a later date.
Given that Boj’s ‘Pops’ is a professional musician, it seems surprising that he only knows 3 songs, and just replaces the words with mostly gibberish in order to fit the situation. Surely a professional musician would have a plethora of songs, a myriad even! Boj on the other hand is not a professional musician and so it comes as no surprise that all of Pops’ songs are the same, when retold by Boj.
Another indication that this is a retelling from an older Boj is that Boj never does anything wrong. He is never responsible for any accident or mishap, and he is always the one who solves the problems. In the telling Boj wants to make himself out as an ultimate hero with no flaws. This could be a further manifestation of a personality disorder, or the need to make up for a previous tragedy. Considering the representation of Mr Cloppity as the habitual meandering storyteller in Boj’s psyche, we can suspect that adult Boj now occupies a similar position. Living in a shed as some form of caretaker or groundsman. The reason Boj has this position can also be implied from his tales.
I suspect that Giggly Park no longer exists! I suspect that all of Boj’s digging undermined the entire town before it collapsed. The whole area is now a massive sink-hole wasteland, and Boj for his penance must now watch over the area to prevent any further accidents. As part of his vigil he inevitably meets people and tells them stories about the civilisation that used to exist there. I think it is no coincidence that when Boj is tunnelling he always just misses large and important artifacts, ranging from buried treasure to flying saucers. These are also factors that he could blame for the collapse of Giggly Park, and his innocence of their discovery is a further psychological defence for him.
The most concerning aspect of Boj’s tales has not yet been addressed and hints towards a more sinister motivation for his tales. Of all of the characters in Boj’s stories, there is one feature that makes Boj unique, and again passes without question. Boj is the only character who is naked. I don’t know who employs Boj in his surveillance, but I hope they have run a DBS check on him!
