#1057 – Squish

I’ve never really had a nemesis. Maybe that’s not unusual and most people don’t. I just had an endless stream of mildly irritating people that I would have to deal with on a recurring basis. What’s a few steps below nemesis? Antagonist?

    i had a nemesis after we got lost in a corn maze and were sitting if front of a campfire we decided to be friends

  2. Rick Griffin says:

    The problem is that a nemesis has to be a match for you . . . too powerful and you can only avoid him, too weak and he’s not worth the trouble. It’s awfully hard to find a good nemesis these days.

    My last few nemesi were ex girlfriends. They did everything to ruin my life except for one of them. She and I are still good friends while the others now pretend I never existed after making my life a living hell for the last three years.

  4. LazerWulf says:

    What would be the plural of nemesis? Nemesises? Nemeses? Nemesi?

  5. Ray A. says:


    And three steps below “nemesis” would be “annoyance.”

    annoyance=brother or sister? sometimes siblings can be nemesises but you have to love (and sometimes share a room with) them anyways.

    Biff *IS* Crushestro!
    (for certain values of crushing)

    And one step below “Annoyance” is “Nuisance Creature.” i.e. Toddlers, small domestic mammals, pollsters, fast food clerks, and the like.

    I love this comic on its own, but now I’m really curious about Biff’s nemesis.

    1. extremist343 says:

      It’s probably Bizarro Biff.

    I GOT IT!
    Splatter week!

    Paintball, Coffee, Watermelon!

    Cold mornings are my car and I’s permanent nemeses. Ten minutes idling with the heater on deals with them, but they always come back…

  11. SilentDragon says:

    splatter pattern, for this and the last, but including the swimming pool incident, everything seems to be a “summer screw-up/accident” (pool, paintballing is more popular in summer I would imagine, watermelon).

    I wonder what kind of eyebrows if any at all *raises an eyebrow*, Biff’s nemisis has.

  12. SilentDragon says:

    correction: forgot the museum, so pool isn’t even part of the week, guess that one just didn’t stand out to me. Splatter it is!

  13. The Prolific Mr. Anonymous says:

    I have had a nemesis. Several. Just their names on my tongue cause my throat to growl in defiance of the syllables and my stomach to churn angry bile. I believe it is a healthy relationship to have!

    There’s still time for the theme to throw a curve ball.

  15. Mewthicus says:

    And those of us that watched Mystery Men know that the plural of “Nemesis” is “Nemeses” That’s “Nem-ih-seeez”.

  16. Mewthicus says:

    explosive splattering, even. Splattering gone wrong. SPLAT!

  17. Cyndaquazy says:

    I know Biff’s nemesis: Rationality

  18. Fred says:

    I do have a nemesis. The guy who seduced and took my fiancée. NICK A., I’LL FIND YOU AND MAKE YOU DESIRE HELL

  20. Vrominelli says:

    Trust me, you do not want a nemesis.
    Not fun.

  21. Cloud W Omega says:

  22. Micah says:

    Is Biff enemies with Gallagher?

  23. -2! says:

    I have quite a good nemesis right now: +3¡

  24. Alakar Voidus says:

    My Nemisis is…fictional. Not by me, of course. CURSE YOU ARNIE CUNCHPARD!!!!

    Basically back in HS there was a guy who looked roughly like me but had the exact opposite personality. We became each other’s nemesis. We attempted to destroy one and other in front of teachers, students, and the principal. Just short of going to blows (because I had him physically) but otherwise everything was ripped out of an obtuse comic strip.

    I miss having a nemesis. Life just isn’t the same.

  26. YukiSnowflake says:

    my nemesis is usually the voice in my head, but occasionally we truce and have a chat.
    Of course, he is my mental nemesis, so I can have a really good chat/debate/gossip with him.
    But, sometimes the other voice gets jealous.
    It’s hard being crazy (*or what we call “normal” here in Biffworld”*)

    A negative acquaintance, annoyance, unpleasant person, Mid-boss, nemesis, then mortal enemy. That’s the hierarchy, at least from my perspective. Mid-boss is just a retro RPG joke, but can be an insulting thing to say to someone- as mid-bosses are usually weak and always have that “I’LL BE BACK!” sore loser attitude about getting his/her butt kicked/argument lost. Ain’t I a wonderful source of useless information? 😛

  29. Tech says:

    My nemesi seem to have a habit of really getting me cranked off, then losing their jobs just when I think I can’t take it anymore :s

  30. Marscaleb says:

    Heh heh, I remember when I was young, and I just sort of thought that everyone had an enemy, so I was going to have one when I got older.
