there are more than one boss..
BRiT and Jason..
plus the self replicating legions of hell known as 'mods'..

bosses is correct.

that is assuming we are to 'blow boogers' in their 'salads'?
if it is to be in the salad of my boss at my workplace then it is neither plural or singular, as i am self-employed and thus have no boss.
i don't blow boogers in my own salad, that would be unwise..

Eastside is right. The description is talking about our boss at work. Even if it is meaning the plural to encompass all of our bosses even though we'd be reading that one at a time, it is still incorect. It should have an apostrophe at the end.

It would be boss' because the context doesn't imply any plural use of the word boss; if the context is meant to imply multiple bosses, then the words booger and salad should be pluralized as well.

singular - boss's
plural - bosses'

Anyway, what is important is that a boss is a double sob spelled backwards

It's acceptable either way. Neither is completely definitive though. Yes, the english language is rather odd at times. Google on it if you're bored.
