  From  Jargon  File  (4.2.3,  23  NOV  2000)  [jargon]: 
  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  who  used  to  be  in  the  waste-management 
  business;  a  large  BFI  logo  in  white-on-blue  could  be  seen  on  the  sides 
  of  garbage  trucks.
