I’m not sure what is stranger, that someone came up with the story that the moon is made of cheese or that I believed it.
But…I thought the Moon was an incandescent light bulb.
torg is right though its become obvious that biffland(?) doesn’t fall to the laws of coninuity else biffs house would still have sideways gravity though maybe he shrank and is standing on the light bulb…but ouch
Huh? Someone please explain this one to me. Too many big words.
The Sea of Nectar and the Marsh of Decay are regions of the Moon. They’re two of the dark patches you see. This is making fun of the idea that the Moon is made of cheese.
I always wondered which part of the moon would taste best, even after I figured out that there was no way it was made of cheese.
Stuff only kids believe week?
Who else thought of Wallace and Gromit?
What’s going on with that spacesuit?
Yum, a space suit that you can stick crackers through!
Thanks for the info Torg.
I say it’s the story that’s strange, how naive we were as kids =p
I did too! That was a great film XD
How does he get the cheese on crackers through? oO
At Hanii Puppy:
In BiffLand, technology has developed far enough to give Bifflanders the ability to make toasters live by crossing dna of creatures, make spacesuits that can allow solid objects to pass through the screen at will of the user, and grants people the ability to travel far into space to make space smores.
OH. Moon-is-made-of-cheese. When I first saw the comic, I thought you were going for a total visual non-sequitur there, like a “Biff is in space for some reason” thing. You’re too clever for me, Chris…
aha i love the description of the cheese tasting
at our new supermarket, Kroger, they put in down the road; they have a fine cheese section. I don’t think they have moon cheese though…i wish they did…
:: Raises Hand ::
Me too. It would’ve been awesome to have a Biff-rocket in the background that looked like Wallace and Gromit’s rocket.
Yup, definately “Adult Lies That Kids Believed” week.
Called the week yesterday! Just… not very eloquently. This was all wallace and gromit’s fault for that cheese/moon movie they made.
Also, I miss wallace and gromit.
I thought of Wallace and Gromit too.
The thing that makes the moon of cheese fantasy better than other food fantasies is that you don’t have to worry about ants.
I also wonder why noone went further and said that the other planets and space stuff were made from food. Neptune made of soda…pluto made of ice cream…sun made…more cheese?
Food myths from our youth week?
I immediately got the “moon made of cheese” reference – but the part that had me do a double-take was wondering how he took a bite out of the cracker with his helmet on.
Well, that Wallace and Gromit cartoon didn’t help.
Ahhh. I see.
Wait a minute… why does Biff need a space suit?
Of course the moon is made of cheese. That’s why they had to fake the moon landings. XD
@tvae I thought of Wallace and gromit, then walked over to the shelf, pulled Grand Day Out off and stuck it in the VCR, and didn’t actually press play.
Wallace and Gromit Rule!
I didn’t get this one until I read the little description. Then I went “Oooooh!”
“One small step for man… One giant blow for the cheese industry”
Oh my god! Biff is a cannibal!!
I ended up thinking of Wallace and Gromit too… I just found out about this comic today. Apparently banner ads for comics work! I kept seeing it advertised on another comic website, so I decided to go and see what all the fuss was about. I’m glad I did, this is a great comic.
Well, he could have a cracker sized airlock in the suit.
…I half expected his eyebrows to stick out of one`a those holes on the side of the helmet. >>;
I seriously thought this comic’sode WAS a spoof of Wallace and Gromit. Then I remembered that W+C didn’t use space suits. And there’s no daydreaming fridgedroid. And spoofing W+C would violate copyright law, which could theoretically lead to legal issues if/when this comic gets added to one of the paperbacks.
That is one killer storm system back on earth
Wallace and Gromit ftw!
@Bob: That’s really what the earth would look like from the moon, because from there we can see it ALL, from the deadly hurricanes to the disruptive cumulonimbus, and even the simple cirrus and stratus. All of it layers up to cover most of the earth under a tattered sheet of white.
Funny thing is, I was never tricked into believing that the moon was made of cheese (I hung out in the astronomy part of the library, that & dinosaurs).
Of course, that means that it took a while to get the joke….
Behold the power of cheese! Among the best Biffs ever, IMHO
Appearantly Biff gets the same Cheese Holiday brochures as Wallace and Gromit.
This seem to be inspired by Wallace and Gromit. I remember that when they were trying the moon cheese, Wallace was trying to compare it to other cheeses, Stilton being one of them.
Wallace & Gromit love. Now where’s the skiing robot?
I didn’t belive the moon was made out of green cheese when I was a kid, but for some reason, I wanted to taste the earth’s crust. In my head I pictured it as some sort of pie crust that astronauts had to blast through to get to space. I did so love pie and the pie crust too.
Hurray for W&G =D
I miss cheese. I found out about a year ago that I was dairy-intolerant. However, I’ve never liked milk … go figure.
