#1083 – Fill

I remember being really impatient when I was waiting for the bathtub to fill with water. I would run in and check it 5 or 6 times before it was finally ready. The pool was another story altogether. I had to start filling that thing up at 6AM if there was going to be any chance of using it that same day. Not only did it take forever to fill but then it had to bake in the sun for 5 hours so that we didn’t die of hypothermia.

    Hey, Chris. New reader here. Have been reading the story for a while now and only got the chance to catch up today.

    I love how your single-strip comes up with some of the wittiest jokes I’ve ever heard. You have certainly entertained me for the past few days and I thank you for that.

    Here’s to future comics!

    Just five hours? Damn, it took my pool months to get to the ideal 95oF.

    When I was a kid, I used to sit/stand in the pool (we didnt have a too big pool, and only a temporary one ya know?) while it filled up.

    My pool was always ice-cold too, but my mom would always come with a heated-up tea kettle from the stove to pour in, in order to make it warm up faster.

    What I want to know is where is he going to get his moat monster at.

    Baughbe- Moat monsters Rus?

    I thought moat monsters sorta just grew naturally..?

    Our pool was filled by tanker truck. Took two runs to top it off… Was seriously icy for a couple days, though.

    Personally, I’d go for a 100,000-volt electric fence, but moats may be better (one-time freakishly high water bill vs. perpetual freakishly high electric bills).

    heeey mebbe next week we coud have a biff family reuninon or sumthing

  12. MaskedMan says:

    Are you insane, dude?! One Biff is dangerous enough. Multiple Biff-types would be the end of the world…

  13. Doctor Why says:

    Many electric fences actually only use significant energy when they discharge current through an intruder. If you ask me, though, the best combination is clearly an electric fence AFTER a moat. Once they’re nice and wet (and possibly bloody) from crossing, then ZAP!

    As for moat monsters, I recommend the Nile Crocodile – it is one of the largest crocodiles and is responsible for hundreds of human deaths every year in the wild. And yet they are also disappearing from a lot of habitats. If you worked the local regulators right, you could have it set up so that anyone who hurt your crocodiles while crossing your moat would be arrested by EPA. I’m a fan of adding insult to injury. >:)

  14. MaskedMan says:

    Naaah. Hippos. Higher bodycount than even the ‘crocs. Big nasty tusks, territorial, and surprisingly fast. Even the ‘crocs leave THEM alone… Plus they’ll keep the water weed problem down.

  15. Radical Edward says:

    I’d go with both hippos and crocs. But I don’t know if they could survive Seattle weather.

    @Doctor Why – I like your style, I’m in need of men like you for my world domination plans.

  17. YukiYukimura says:

    I do NOT need a moat monster.
    MY moat is also my aquarium, and I happen to own bull sharks.
    (*also known as river sharks, the only ones that can live in fresh water. also more dangerous than great whites*)

    phew… i finally got back, now to catch up again…

    @moradin – family reunion? BIFF HAS FAMILY?! D:|
    I thought some mad scientist grew him in a test tube!
    …Biff has some explaining to do D:<

  18. YukiYukimura says:

    @doctorwhy – I am thinking that you will be better off working for me, rather than Rico’s world domination plans, as people seeking world domination almost ALWAYS use their employees and kill them when they own the world.
    If you came to MY side, you wouldn’t be an employee, but a partner in crime, with half of everything for me and the other half for you. You also get many bonuses to working for me, but you will NOT know them until you do work for me.
