Roger Fox's boss in the comic strip Foxtrot
. Although largely a supporting character, he is a source of many good jokes. His face is never seen, and usually all that can be seen are his hands, which he holds together with the thumbs up on his desk. He is apparently intimidating and somewhat corrupt, forcing Roger to do things he doesn't believe are right, including making data to justify a large pay increase for himself while the company is in debt and laying off workers, and even making poor Roger dress up as a clown and entertain at his son JP Jr.'s birthday party, which resulted in a "radio controlled plane incident" and an injury to Roger's nose.
