After resigning a few short weeks ago, the noble PM said he would stay on until the Tories choose a replacement and that he has done, and rather than twiddle his thumbs and write some handover documents, he has used his notice period to behave in utterly bonkers ways.
From having a jolly while the rest of the cabinet held a Cobra meeting, to behaving in petty ways with his rivals, he's really amped up his "no f***s given" vibe in the last few weeks. He is basically the poster boy for quiet quitting.
Paul Dacre, the former editor of the Daily Mail, and billionaire Tory donor Michael Hintze are also said to be in line to be ennobled in the next couple of months so it is looking like a cracking list indeed.
3. Had a jolly in Chequers
When the UK prepared for an extreme heatwave in which temperatures in parts of the country reached a record breaking 40.3C, Johnson hung out in his Chequers retreat in Buckinghamshire instead of chairing an emergency Cobra meeting about it.
Labour’s Angela Rayner said Johnson had “gone missing in action again”.
“He’s back to his old tricks of skipping important Cobra meetings.
“The public will have no confidence in this zombie Conservative government responding swiftly and decisively to this national emergency as this disgraced prime minister prepares to party while Britain boils.”
If that wasn't bad enough, Johnson spent some valuable time being filmed at the controls of a Royal Air Force combat jet. He gave a thumbs up as he took the reins of the jet flying through the sky before making a speech to business leaders at Farnborough air show.
"After three happy years in the cockpit, performing some pretty difficult if not astonishing feats, I am about to hand the controls over seamlessly to someone else," he joked.
People thought it was a waste of taxpayers money and who can blame them?
\u201cFirst footage of the PM at controls of a Typhoon last week.\n\nIn a speech this morning he'll compare the flight to\nto his leadership of the Tory party: \n\n"I hauled the joystick right the way back and we did a loop the loop..."\u201d
People speculated it might have been motivated by Ellwood's support for leadership hopeful Penny Mordaunt, and his sustained criticism for Johnson but government loyalist rebuffed these claims.
But the whips’ office confirmed the next day that the MP would be “temporarily unsuspended” so he could vote in the contest, before having the whip suspended again by the end of the afternoon.
That's something, then.
6. Used his last PMQs to call Starmer a "plastic bollard"
You might think a leader would use one of their final commons appearances to talk about what they have achieved, or to give advice for the future.
It is, after all, a historical moment.
But Johnson used his final PMQs to call the opposition leader a "plastic bollard" and when he left the chamber said: "Hasta la vista".
7. Played with grenades
Johnson visited Ukrainian troops training in Yorkshire in late July and joined in the training.
He was even filmed throwing a grenade and pictured playing with guns.
\u201cThis week I visited Ukrainian troops being trained by British Armed Forces in North Yorkshire. \n\nThe UK is committed to doing all we can to help Ukraine continue to repel Russian aggression.\u201d
He framed it as one of the ways he was supporting the war-torn country, but others saw it as another example of him clocking off.
A frustrated former Tory MP Anna Soubry accused him of being "lazy" and "incompetent" and completing a "bucket list" like a "petulant child".
"Johnson's legacy is going to be the worst prime minister in our history," she added in an interview with Good Morning Britain.
8. Packed up his flat
In August, two huge removal vans arrived were spotted outside Downing Street , prompting speculation that the prime minister will leave office with loads of furniture and anything not nailed down, perhaps like someone leaving a hotel room with loads of tiny shampoo bottles.
The man shared a video on social media of the moment the prime minister donned a stab vest as he said "how do you do" to the person behind the camera, who greeted him with "wagwan Boris".
"I woke up to a 6am raid and Boris Johnson's in my face. Bro, how the f*** did I get raided and Boris Johnson's there?" he said in a separate video.
Class B drugs were found, but no arrests were made.

It was part of his tour which he organised to highlight the positive things he’s achieved for the country as prime minister since 2019, The Times reported.
What a ridiculous thing to do.
12. Fixed the cost of living crisis by telling people to get kettles
Perhaps tired of all his jollies, the PM decided to do a speech addressing the cost of living crisis (finally). What were his pearls of wisdom? He told people they could ease their energy bill woes by buying a new £20 kettle to save £10 a year on their electricity.
Speaking in Suffolk, Johnson said: “If you have an old kettle which takes ages to boil, it may cost you £20 to replace it – but if you get a new one, you’ll save £10 a year every year on your electricity bill.”
He was roasted by despairing Brits.
13. Hung out with cartoon characters
Last week, Johnson and his family met characters from Paw Patrol in Kent. It might have been nice for his children, but it would have been great if he could have done some governing, too.
