#1254 – Snooze

More public places need convenient napping areas. It’s hard to get a good full day of shopping done at the mall without breaks. I have plenty of money left when I leave but a person can only walk along mosaic tiled floors for so long before being hypnotized into a zombie like state of drowsiness. Give me a bed to go with my smoothie and I’ll stick around much longer.

Today’s Biffimumble barks up the right tree.

*Note: When this strip went up on April 1st the comments below were moderated to hold back any mention of the joke. That’s why you’ll see so many people think they are the first one to point out it was April Fool’s day.

  2. Tekaramity says:

    Oh you~

  3. ato784 says:

    Haha. Good idea having a cross over for April fools day.

  4. Chuck says:

    OMG so true. I think we should take naps after lunch at work, too.

  5. Space Butler says:

    Every year…I swear I won’t be made a fool of again, and you and Biff always prove me wrong.

  6. BiggerJ says:

    Dear god, I hope you keep the original versions of these online.

    When I was little, I once got lost in a shopping mall. I was tired, so I walked into Meyers and slept on one of their beds. At the time, I thought there was nothing wrong with this, until I woke up to being carried by a random stranger. Of course I panicked ’cause I knew I wasn’t meant to let a stranger near me, but he was the store manager and carried me back to my family.

    WAIT WAIT WAIT… “thebookofmax.com”? That made me laugh even more than the comic.

    Heh. April 1st. 🙂

    Happy April Fools.

  11. ?why did you switch characters?

  12. Rhejinald says:

    Loving the swap! Was it really a year ago we had biff talking? Time sure does fly!

  13. (yeah, kinda had a feeling all comments were getting moderated, being April Fools Day)

  14. Kree says:

    There never seems to be enough benches in malls these days. Maybe it’s a “less droppin’ more shoppin'” approach, but I think I’d probably stay longer if only I had a nice place to sit down every now and then. They’re almost as rare as drinking fountains. Damn $2 bottles of water!

  15. ZeoViolet says:


    Love it.

  16. Lisa says:

    I love the new *cough*”art direction”, Chris.
    Biff works MUCH better as a three panel comic, and who needs that colour and eyebrows and stuff in the single panel comic?

  17. darkclaw says:

    April Fools switcheroo?

  18. Rex says:

    The future will be less detailed and black and white!

  19. -2! says:

    Happy today everybody!

  20. -2! says:

    Now that it is clear I got it I think I am going to join in the fun, as the people who get it are moderated till tomorrow.

  21. DauntedPeak says:

    O__OMAX!!!!!!! WHAT DID YOU DO TO BIFF?!?!?!?!?!?!?/

  22. Cyndaquazy says:

    Ooo. The first maximumble-Biff crossover! Also, 100-hour work week!? That leaves only 4 hours of rest per weekday (assuming that weekends are still off)!

  23. Kitsune Dzelda says:

    It must be pretty bad when the workweek turns Biff into a puppet. Nice try Chris, I know what day it is. 😛

  24. Ozcar says:


  25. Lirren Shentai says:

    I like the book of max and biffimumble! 😛 Happy April 1st, Chris

  26. Kyle says:

    bloody april.

  27. BFS says:

    rofl 🙂 I wish my workplace (Winn-dixie) had a napping area, I’d be taking naps alongside any napping shoppers.

  28. Zephir says:

    Oh you and your april fools day crossover. 😀

  29. Peter says:

    For some reason I am getting Biff on the Mumble bookmark, and Mumble on the Biff bookmark.

  30. Carrie says:

    You must have a typo….. I tried finding “thebookofmax.com” but It does not exist 😉

  31. Rasheed says:

    If you are confuzzled, check today’s date.

  32. BrainpanSonata says:

    I like today’s strip. Is… is that a nightgown he’s wearing?

  33. Saber_elf says:

    April Fools!

  34. Marks1stwife says:

    I think I’m scared now. Yesterday I was reading about the great “Comic Strip Switcheroo” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comic_strip_switcheroo and I thought to myself… Hey! Mr. Hallbeck could do that with Biff and Maximumble.

  35. Paul Haworth says:

    lol like it, I’m guessing the switch of characters is due to april fools… and if I remember correctly you have scripts to hide posts for april fools so everyone doesn’t give the game away.

  36. Mynameis832 says:

    Love biffs new style! I’m especially glad he has eyes… I wondered how he knew were he was going! You’re keeping this, right?

  37. JezMM says:

    Haha, absoloutely brilliant idea. My favourite of all the webcomic tricks witnessed today.

  38. Wigster says:

    My first Fools day with Biff! I feel officially inaugurated now.

  39. Lenn says:

    Oh man. I remember the first time you did this. You cruel, cruel artist.

  40. caranthir6169 says:

    Haha… Chris! April Fools! It took me a min to realize what was going on, but thats the price of being blonde lol!

  41. Acies says:

    @ Kree: really? the mall near my house just recently installed a lot of stylish new benches/couches =D

  42. momorikku says:

    Yay! I can honestly say that the Arpil 1st comics are always my favorites. *gasp* I don’t think that April 1st is on a weekday next year! *double-checks* NOES! It’s on a sunday!

  43. Elfe says:

    I think I know whats going on here. Including the risk that this post wont appear: Friday was April 1st. If There is the old “Comment hiding” trick in use, It means everyone thinks their the first to realize. Which they arent. Funny either way. Lets look at this Biffmumble…

  44. AdmiralMemo says:

    Anyone not getting it… Um… April Fool’s!

  45. Nobody says:

    this might be the last post on this.
