#176 – Shredder

I love putting stuff through my shredder. It’s a very satisfying feeling to watch a stack of credit card offers be turned into a ball of curly strips. The little fake credit cards give a nice crunch as they go through the blades.

  1. CDs make nice cruncy sounds too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    And as for the tie thing – can’t tell you how many times I almost got my ID badge caught in the shredder…

    i’m going to call him SPIFF in this strip…cuz he looks spiffy and stuff. ๐Ÿ˜›

  3. qwertyuioppizza says:

    I got my shirt in one of those once. Needless to say it can’t wear it anymore.=P

  4. Magnius of the Chaos says:

    Ouch. Poor Biff.
    I don’t envy the Biff of a few seconds later. XD

  5. …hmm, I once witnessed one of my teachers do this for real with a metal work lathe. Fortunate for him it was on slow speed & equiped with kick stops.

    On a simular note , has Biff ever had a run in with the suction toilets on planes ?

    i’m lovin’it padapapapaa (8) (MCdonald’s theme thingy)
    your doin’great work here chris o/

  7. JustMe says:

    since when does biff have a job?

  8. Madness says:

    Well, that would suck. I’m going to guess it was one of his best ties. >.>

  9. Wes says:

    Oh my goodness, I got my tie stuck in the shredder yesterday… I feel your pain, Biff.

  10. Vornicka says:

    It makes me wonder how many people with office jobs have nightmares about that kind of thing.. Or other office supply attacking them at random innocent times.

  11. Rileyesco says:

    Yes i must remeber not to do that…..doesn’t look like much fun

  12. Haragorn says:

    Wait… Is Biff a student, or does he have an office job? He goes to school (uphill both ways), sharpens his thoughts before the big exam, forgets to feed the gungerlock at his office, is wary of the automatic folder-stapler, and then there’s this comic…

  13. Pickleduck McWeaselpants says:

    He’s both, I reckon. Also, I do not envy him right now.

  14. Chris says:

    Haragorn, the comics aren’t necessarily in sequential order.

  15. Iethloc says:

    Is Biff a being who occupies a non-linear space/time continuum?!

  16. Chris says:

    Haha, maybe he is ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. R Cross says:

    RAWR!Shedder hungry!!Remember folks, feed your office supplies daily.
    That passed my mind as well as other thoughts……that I’m not at liberty to say.

  18. machine146 says:

    I hate ties so putting in the shredder wouldn’t be a problem for me unless of course I’m wearing the tie at the time.

  19. Amplify says:

    I always pegged Biff to be the sort of person who would work for customer service at (insert airline company of your choosing).

  20. Andrew says:

    Wow! He really does still work in that office. Does he remember to feed the gungerlock?

  21. This happened to my dad in the 80’s. He kept the tie (a red and blue striped number) and showed us when he got home from work.

    Biff should watch those eyebrows too.

    Haragorn, the comics arenโ€™t necessarily in sequential order.

    Of course! It’s like a Quinten Tarantino flick!
    …Or at least similar to Pulp Fiction.

    His office supplies hate him.
    The fold-staple copier, the gungerlock, and the paper shredder. What’s next?
    Is there anything left for him to hurt himself with?

  23. TKort says:

    What’s interesting is that Biff also sometimes works on a road crew.. he’s either multi-talented, or tends not to be at a given job for a long time.. or maybe he just doesn’t age and these events have taken place over the course of many years of his life. Or the space-time thingy…


  24. Endless says:

    first the gungerlock and now this, Biff needs a new job

    Waitโ€ฆ Is Biff a student, or does he have an office job?

    I think it’s both of them, but well… Chris says that the comic is not necessary in a sequential order…

    Mmm… I hope that never happens to me… maybe I should never work on an office…

    At my work we got this real neat thing device. Its a CD shredder, but it doesnt shred the plastic. It shreads off all the silver coating the information is in, and makes it onto powder. Wear a mask tho! You Will be coughing up pixie dust for week if you dont… >.

  27. Rocky A says:

    Biff learns the hard way that the credit cards he receives with his mail aren’t free money.

    I am wondering if thats why interns were created, the all great fear of dangerous office equipment. i know knives on the counter or the jumbo tub of peanut butter always seem to be attacking me.

  28. Nate says:

    Ummm, he could do both ya know, he just goes to school in hope of a promotion at this desk job.

  29. Jetman123 says:

    Tie? You need to watch where your TONGUE goes. I nearly got it stuck in a shredder once, when I was young. OW.

  30. Twilight says:

    His back must be built like steel to lift that thing and hold it at that angle without and bending.

  31. Rono says:

    i just love expression, nice job chris

  32. Oddly Frozen says:

    my shredder has a safety thing so you cant get your hands stuck but it doesnt protect against other things =O

    also, when i saw this i immediatly tought of this


  33. pieman says:

    there are signs on them that say dont do this, yet they mention nothing about tongues. ๐Ÿ˜›

  34. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    He could be a night school student working at an office part of the week and dirting roads another part. What’s left over would be his time for inventing things/getting into wierd situations/getting injured/sleeping.

  36. Knife Knut says:

    On the off chance this ever happens to me, as i will be wearing my tie clip, it wont be a problem since the tie clip is a small knife.

  37. Sindy says:

    Haha it’s better to take those credit card offers and use those prepaid envelopes to send them back your own offer! be it a new credit card offer or more useless stuff…like COUPONS!

  38. Hoboapple says:

    I’m imagining Dwight shredding the credit cards…

  39. Misguided Terran says:

    I know we’re all interested in the shredder, let me not tear it from you…

    But does it appear to anyone else that the office is nothing more than a strange maze… well, for people a few feet shorter than our beloved Biff?

  40. Rachel says:

    he needs a new tie now ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Melindotty says:

    I broke my dad’s shredder.

    He hasn’t noticed yet.

  42. Lisa says:

    a belt sander will take care of cdroms

  43. Lenashawitz says:

    My shredder actually has a warning label for ties.

  44. Aw man… Why don’t we get shredders at the office? I’ll have to look into that…

  45. Torg says:

    I know it’s a bit late, but since no one else has said it…
    Jetman123, what were you doing sticking your tongue into a paper shredder?
    How is it even possible for you to do that accidentally?

  46. Happy Pills says:

    R.I.P., Tie. ๐Ÿ™

  47. Crazyeyes says:

    “iโ€™m going to call him SPIFF in this stripโ€ฆcuz he looks spiffy and stuff. :D”

    Which is perfect, because the unaspirated p in spiff and the devoiced b in Biff are exactly the same sound! ๐Ÿ˜€

    …sorry, you woke up my inner linguist. ^_^;;

  48. Lurch says:

    yah – I’ve lost a tie that way… and with a 20-inch neck, I can’t just pull my ties off the rack at Wal-Mart. I had them custom made.

    There’s a reason they make clip-on ties, you know.

  49. MrD says:

    It could be worse, he could have got his eyebrows in it.

  50. gregg says:

    Is Biff an office manager? I’ve worked with a few that seem to have the same luck…

  51. ArsonWolf says:

    hehe. biff needs to look down. there is an ad for a new tie
