= B =
BFI /B-F-I/ n.
See brute force and ignorance.
Also encountered in the variants `BFMI', `brute force and
massive ignorance' and `BFBI' `brute force and bloody
ignorance'. In some parts of the U.S. this abbreviation was
probably reinforced by a company called Browning-Ferris Industries
in the waste-management business; a large BFI logo in white-on-blue
could be seen on the sides of garbage trucks.
