well thats disturbing
i never knew there were such things as orange peelers, and to think ive been breaking my nails all these years…
Yeah they are great. There are lots of different versions of them. Here’s the kind I’ve used since I was a kid.
that’s gross…but cool
Goddamnit, why have I never seen these before!? Clementines are okay, but anything else is basically impossible to peel. It’s insane. I wonder where I can get them in the Frozen Wastes of Canada.
I imagine some sort of Home/Kitchen type store would have them in some form or another. You just didn’t know they were there to look for them.
the comments box gets the greatest conversations
This is the longest one we have had in a while. Maybe I should write about fruit related objects more often.
Ooh! Ooh! Write about watermelon!
Ok, I’ll add that to my idea list.
you know i would have prefered to peel my skin off than what happened to me this morning: i brushed my teeth with citrus toothpaste. it was like brushing your teeth with regurgatated baby aspirin. when the hell did they start making new toothpaste flavors? bleh.
Yeah I recently switched back to regular old “toothpaste” flavored toothpaste. I got tired of all the fancy stuff. It actually feels like it cleans my teeth better as well.
I would pay money for chocolate flavored toothpaste.
I thunk’d everyone had orange peelers. Ah well. I like this because it appears he brushed a LOT before realizing something was wrong.
It looks like his skin is made of cloth and his teeth are the zipper
TJ, yeah it does!
OMG you posted the same day as me AGAIN!
Just to keep the posting going: O_O_O_O_O_O
Damn that’s gross.. it reminds me of all those shows on TV like “Extreme Makeover” that make me need to change the channel in a hurry.. people’s faces peel off way too easily.. it’s really disconcerting
Oy… I’d never heard of an orange peeler before now, and I love to cook and mess with fruit. I may have to get one of these.
And you should see the mess an unattended citrus zester can do to your hand, as I found out at work the other day (I stock shelves in a store with a massive home/kitchen untensil wall including very sharp objects).
It must not be massive enough if you don’t have orange peelers!
well if you do get an orange peeler just make sure you dont brush your teeth with it like poor biff did. gruesome…
…i cant thank you more for not having anything more disgusting than just a fallen mask look for this one *cringes*
Where’d his eyes go? shouldnt they still be in the sockets at least with how his heads positioned?
Yeah, you are probably right. I was going for a skull look and didn’t really think it through that much
His eyes probably don’t sit as far forward as they used to since his head imploded.
“His eyes probably don’t sit as far forward as they used to since his head imploded. ”
Now that’s not a statement you hear everyday.
Haha, this thread…
Even little cold sweden has orange peelers. But I’m not sure if I ever dare use one again. What if I misplace it among my teethbrushes?
etherscythe. I laughed out loud with that one. How you can say things like that so innocently while reading Biff is just amazing.
heheheh, how anyone can say anything innocently while reading Biff is incredible
It would have been funnier with blood.
Siirenias, I’ve HAD chocolate toothpaste. And if you’re getting it at a dentist… BLUUUHHH. They used to convince me to get bubblegum (or in one case, chocolate) flavoured toothpaste… Urk, normal toothpaste makes me puke sometimes, too. Why did the dentists have to make me have flavoured toothpaste, anyway? o.=
I HATE dentist toothpaste, GLUGH
i’ve only had one of these, that came with a bag of oranges. while not as bad as this experience, it snapped and narrowly missed my eye. either the peeler was very cheap or the orange was very unripe.
Damn you sir. Damn you, damn you, damn you. Ahhh repressed memories!
I am disturbed again.
GAH!!!!! that is sooo freeky (that link not the comic)
well i dont think he has eyes since his eyelids are always closed. and a potato peeler might make more sense since, if you know how and orange peeler works, it is really only needed for 1 second and it really isnt that sharp.
You can get the orange peelers (or orange zippers) through Tupperware, they come in a bunch of different colours.
I live in Canada, and that’s how my mom got them for us.
I cut my hand with an orange pealer. Not fun. There was blood everywhere.
Whaddaya know, he does have a skeleton. I’d wondered.
I’ve had chocolate toothpaste before, (mint chocolate) and found it to be utterly distasteful. I do, however, use an orange mango flavoured toothpaste by Tom’s of Maine that is the only one I’ve found that doesn’t make me retch. (In fact, it’s quite good)
I wish that I actually knew about orange peelers before and could buy one!!! I don’t have nails so I always end up having to use my teeth. Awesome comic, I like the skeleton effect!!
it seems that biff needs all of his skin to be in tact for his eyebrows to stick up the way they normally do. but yeah, i guess orange peelers have existed since before biff, but i heard about them last year. unimpressed since i dont regularly eat oranges. but yeah…
I tried one of those plastic orange peelers once, until the citric acid started dissolving the surface of the plastic.
…we’ve got the kind that has more of a hook than the pic, and this squre loop thingy on the back, and this this pry thingy on the end. ‘s cool.
I can’t believe I never knew there was such a thing… must be regional, because I’ve lived on the east coast of the USA almost my whole life, and no one has ever heard of them.
I think I have to revise my view of the biff speicies….A Crash Test Dummy, A Roach, and a Mad Scientist….
of course, we all already knew that…
I have vanilla mint toothpaste, it’s actually quite tasty.
My orange peelers look nothing like that Look like…. *attempts to construct in ASCII*
Bugger, it didn’t work, my spaces went away. Maybe periods instead? Just pretend they aren’t there and it’s an accurate picture.
I’ve cut myself with an orange peeler before. They are actually quite sharp.
I have this stuff you can use for body soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, handsoap, and to top it off, toothpaste. its hard to find though. it tastes and smells like lemonheads.
I don’t start off peeling oranges, I usually find the little divot at either end of the orange and push my thumb down into the center of the orange. Then I pull out that strange stem thing and then begin the peeling process. Makes it easier than trying to peel it from scratch.
@Trypno: That’s what I do too, even though we have orange peelers. And then I eat the what stuff.
Thats not the sort of thing you want to see at 5:30 in the morning. :gonk:
Okay, so how does one use an orange peeler? The picture just raises more questions.
so, wait. Biff’s human?!?!?
I like his posture here..
thats a deffinate ‘Arrrrrgh’ pose right there..especially the empty hand.
I find that if I roll an orange around on a hard surface for about 30 seconds it peels very easily- a single perfect spiral every time!
I found this out quite by accident- I happened to be bored, and had a hand cramp from writing (and editing and rewriting) an essay draft the night before, so I just started rolling the citrusy little bugger around, and voila!
@ Chris – *Points to your first comment* Do you use Oztion, or just needed an image for it?
Australia has lots of great stuff. Like all the poison snakes and spiders.
Did…did he uh, just gouge out his eye balls?
….I hope so. Nice. Oh, and fyi, that link for the orange peeler doesn’t work no more. (Never heard of one. I always had to ask someone else to peel my orange.)
I shall have to search Youtube to see how an Orange peeler works.
I wish there was a thousand of these, because there can!
