How so? Please explain because the BiB escapes me.
If Boyle died and his body was hollowed out you wouldn't need 'the guy who plays Gollum to wear it', it'd keep afloat on its own from all the hot air he spouts.
You just made a tasteless joke about his death
It really makes him the subject, since no one is going to say "yeah, pfft... take that cancer victims triumphing over adversity" are they?
The joke is him and his ridiculous misanthropy. No one for one second thinks he means that joke as an attack.
