#1031 – Stub

Unfortunately I was off popsicles for a whole summer from an incident nowhere near as horrible as this. Sliced into the inside of my cheek. It was a confusing sensation at first since my mouth was slightly numb from the cold. I think I freaked out my parents when I went running into the house with cherry popsicle juice dripping from my face and hands.

    Summer week! With nasty injuries, but that’s just Biff as usual

    Been there, done that many Summers ago; except mine was a small splinter in my cheek. I got it out without too much blood and less pain than I had any right to expect, but I’m a lot more careful with popsicles now.

    i usually just chew up the popsicle stick until it is soft and brush-like… and have never managed to get any splinters from one o.O biff is just not as lucky, but at least he has insane healing powers… or immortality, something like that ^_^

    OH god, so many splinters, and in the mouth…terrible.

    Hmm, you might be able to salvage enough of that stick to use in your ‘Bridge over the River Kuai” model. Should be good for a short support strut.

    Biff lots of foods have edible and inedible parts…you know bananas & peels, cherries & pits, so goes the popsicle & stick. Perhaps you should consume with a bit more caution or better yet a coach!

    Whatever happened to the good old “Biff learns” days?

  9. MaskedMan says:

    Sometimes, the lesson goes a bit beyond merely “Learning.” Like when the inside of your mouth looks like you bit down on a porcupine sandwich.

    Mr. Hallbeck: Was it you or your parents that instituted the hiatus from Popsicles?

    MaskedMan: “Porcupine Sandwich” -> I snickered.

    i think that he bit it so hard that it blew up

  12. Chris says:

    I went to high school with a guy we nicknamed “porcupine sandwich”

    I am SO not asking.

  14. Mewthicus says:

    I am. Porcupine sandwich? Really? Whatever earned him that name? I went to school with a girl that wasr eferred to as a type of porcupine, but it was a slur on her being looser and easier than a bucket of water.

    They may be directly proportional, but remember: correlation does not imply causation.

    Those splinters might actually come from a wooden porcupine. Think about it.

    I’ve always refused to eat those little tubs of ice cream that come with the wooden sticks that serve as spoons (unless there was a plastic spoon nearby), for fear I would get splinters in my tongue (and because I hate the texture of wooden things in my mouth). I’ve also been very careful with popsicles (and wooden chopsticks), to the point of not finishing the popsicle completely. My friends always laughed at me, but now I know that it can happen.
