#222 – Socks

It’s amazing the things that you can lose in a dresser drawer. When I was a kid things would go into one of the drawers and vanish for years before I found them again. I think somewhere there is a dresser drawer that still has some haloween candy in it that I never got around to eating.

  1. I know what you mean. I’m in the process of moving and discovering some of those long-lost drawer items… 😀

    I know I haven’t replied in a while, but I read every day. Keep up the funny!

  2. Andrew says:

    My backpack did that on occation. One of my teachers comfirmed it in middle school when she watched me put the assignment in my backpack and was, herself, unable to find it.

      Glad my back pack never did that!

  3. Kuroiten says:

    Whose sock drawer can’t bend the space-time continuum? I mean, come on, it’s a standard feature and part of the laws of space-time.

    It also explains where those missing socks go…

    i once lost my gerbil (it was actually a something pig but i dont know how to spell that) and found it in my sock draw, three weeks later

    1. extremist343 says:

      I believe guinea pig is the word you were looking for.

  5. Justin says:

    Dead, I’m assuming, jo?

    Anyway, just finished reading all the Biff comics from first to well… not last, but this one!


  6. bilbo says:

    It’s spelt like this: Guinea pig. just a helper, so anyway, im a new poster, and just find this comic almost unbelieveeably funny!


  7. Magdalena says:

    Strangely…I agree with this comic….I never dared look inside my sock drawer for some reason. Now I know why.

  8. Tinned Moron says:

    My cousin used to have a zombie in his.

  9. dragonbrad says:

    there was,a mall that my brother told me about,were some friends of his stubled into,and when they tryed to come back later it was gone

    1. extremist343 says:

      I’ve encountered a mall like that before!

  10. KoL Addict says:

    My friend’s backpack does the same thing. He can put stuff in it, and the next day, it’s nowhere to be seen!

  11. Ksullvan says:

    O my god! If this is his dresser imaging his closet…

  12. Reikon Ame says:

    Actually Chris I have a good story for you on that one.

    When my Dad was a bit younger he was out hunting with one of his friends and when they got back they had their rifles still.Coming inside they emptied them. But one round fell out and down under the couch. Now both my father and his friend not wanting me or my brother to find this and hurt outselves at that young age moved the couch and looked under finding nothing. Making sure to keep checking they even took apart the couch and searched it from top to bottom still nothing.

    The round just completely dissapeared. And my dad and his friend both confirm that story. Because things in my last house just dissapeared on me. Cards and such.
    Still no known explaniantion for the round dissapearing.

  13. Dakras says:

    Well, my family keeps their socks in a picnic basket ………. one good thing is you can completely invert it every now and then…….

  14. Steveith says:

    I found a left over easter egg in my underwear drawer when I was six.

    It sounds like Reikon Ame’s got a case of haunted house. I’d say the ghost was my Dad, collecting useless crap and whatnot, but he’s still alive.

  15. I believe this will make Biff’s Twister efficiency go up enormously

  16. Kristen says:

    I wish my sock drawer could do that:

  17. XRS says:

    Haha, EVERY dresser does that, dryers(and sometimes washers) do it too XD

  18. Madness says:

    Same thing with beneath couches.

  19. Reikon Ame says:

    Well Stevith you actually hit the nail on the head. I did live in a house with ghosts. My dad has a story of his brother in law, and you can ask him as well. While working at our house he was in the garage and my dad left. What he says happened was the lights started to flash on and off and the radio was running up and down the dial. And to this day refuses to enter that garage.

  20. Daniel says:

    this is one of the greatest things that i have ever seen.
    i’m speechless.

  21. geeklord says:

    Once again, Biff manages to break the laws of physics.

  22. zaranath says:

    Biff always bends the laws of physics, he does it just by being alive!

  23. DMC_Run says:

    It’s well-known to all who followed the (animated) TV-series “The Tick” that sock-drawers & dryers accomplish this miracle by accelerating objects up to the Speed of Lint! (MUCH faster than Light! Light-speed can be measured!)

    The episode in question is, I believe: “The Tick vs. The Big Nothing”

  24. Endless says:

    My dresser so does that

  25. Wayne says:

    My sock drawer DOESN’T do that. I still have all my socks accounted for, despite using the dorm laundry room. My drawer must be defective.

    What I want to know is, why did Biff dive headfirst into his sock drawer? He obviously didn’t yet know his drawer was a Roddenberrian anomaly, so that can’t have been his reasons. Maybe he was just thinking how cushy his socks looked.

  26. Phantom says:

    I have but one thing to say in responce to DMC_runs post: “SPPOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNNNN”

  27. Anderson says:

    This is why you wouldn’t have a sock drawer, simply stick to the more conventional and back to nature style- SOCK PILE !! 😛

    Anyhow thanks for the daily entertainment .. it’s sum of the best online

  28. TKort says:

    Yeah I’ve come to the conclusion that leaving the socks in the laundry basket until they’re all gone is the best solution: once the basket’s empty, I’m out of socks (and/or underwear) and it’s time to do laundry again!! This also, incidentally, solves the issue of loads too big or too small.. since once I go through a load’s worth of socks, I’ve also worn a load’s worth of other clothes…

  29. KotkaMroku says:

    That would explain where my socks are gone often. I think I have exactly same sock drawer…

  30. Candlelighter says:

    Quote: It also explains where those missing socks go…

    In theory, religions answer questions that science cannot (with a few exceptions) then this is a religion itself? All hail the drawer gods!

  31. Mint Sharpie says:

    We had a black hole behind the cubbies in my elementary school. Things would vanish randomly, things that we’d put in full view, only to reappear the day after we needed them. No amount of cubby-dismantling could find where the items went to in between.

  32. changeling says:

    HA! I lost my whole _dresser_ once. *ahem* when I was six or so, I had a sticker collection that I put all over my dresser. My room was so messy one day, I couldn’t find the dresser… sad, but true. it took a dilegent five-minute search to unearth it.

  33. Rosie says:

    I have a similar story to Reikon’s. After I moved, I saved up to buy a new computer. When I built it, I celebrated with a game. That game is now gone. I’ve taken my desk apart, rummaged through boxes and taken everything out of them: nothing. The same thing happened to some school documents that were in my car (fortunately, I was able to replace or get copies of most of them as they were things like test scores and certificates)

  34. unfunk says:

    I have a messenger bag that has similar properties to these sock drawers… it’s so big that I can fit my guitar amplifier in it, and, on more than one occasion, I have lost things in it for days, weeks, and even months at a time, such as tools, medications, friends…

    I’m thinking that maybe it’s a little too large…

  35. Rachel says:

    I KNEW IT!

  36. St. Jimmy says:

    Heh. I once put a frog in my empty bottom drawer for a while when I was a little kid, right? I forgot about him rather quickly x). three months later, he was in my top drawer (with the socks) completely healthy. interesting.

  37. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    When I was in fifth grade, I had a backpack with wheels. I swear, if I tried to crawl into it to find something, I probaly would have been lost for weeks.

    All these stories make me think the Bermuda Triangle blew up…

  38. Maniac says:

    Yeah, last year, I borrowed my brother’s manga comic book and I stashed it in my backpack and one week later, I couldn’t find it. Another week later, I found it. I guess sometimes this space-time continum thingy can happen with backpack.

  39. Elkian says:

    So THAT’S how the sock gremlins get in! *moves socks to cardboard box*

  40. Psymon says:

    I don’t know about my sock drawer, but when I go on trips (usually camping), sometimes my luggage will mysteriously vanish unless I carry it with me the whole way up instead of putting it with everyone else’s luggage. The disappearance isn’t limited to luggage, but it’s one where I can be certain that I didn’t simply misplace the lost item–I have witnesses who saw me put my backpack right there in the truck, and now the truck is empty, and nobody can find the backpack I brought, and it’s the only item missing–and someone was behind the truck the whole time, so if it had fallen out, it would have been seen.
    Sorry, that subject tends to get me into rant mode.

  41. speearr says:

    LOL! This one takes the cake…

  42. yeremy yao says:

    sock drawers have a tendancy to do that

  43. cam says:

    love it im new and found this on fan b0y$

  44. Tomato3456 says:

    Funny you should mention the halloween candy thing… When I was really young, I got a bag of sweets from a shop somewhat near my house. Included was a penguin-shaped marshmallow that I found too cute to eat. I instead stored it in my sock draw for safe keeping. When I next went looking for it, it had mysteriously vanished. I never saw it again…

  45. Marr965 says:

    I once got an easter rabbit made of chocolate. I didn’t eat it until next January.

  46. the walrus says:

    We all know what really happens to socks. Sometime when you are not looking they get out of your drawers, and then shift into a parallel dimension where socks, and other things inexplicably appear in sock drawers, backpacks, lockers, etc. By the way, I only started posting recently, and i want to say good job Chris, and keep up the good work.

  47. Manek says:

    Now you’re thinking with portals.

    1. Sam says:

      You beat me to it. Haha

  49. The Incredible Plum says:

    Is the drawer made of Mahogany?
    The first thing I thought of when I saw this was an episode of TeamFourStar’s Dragon Ball Z Abridged (found on youtube), that goes as follows:
    [I do have a desk, though. It’s made of mahogany…..And not just any mahogany; but mahogany from the planet Balkior 7; where the trees are three hundred feet tall and breathe-FIRE! From these trees this desk was forged two-thousand years ago, though the ancient blood rituals of the Balkior People! Not only does this make my desk nigh indestructible, but it can bend the very fabric of the universe itself!!! Also, it’s a very fine material. Very expensive.]

  50. B-Caff says:

    Somebody mentioned cake?

    Sorry, that was a lie.

    It was so delicious and moist.

  51. DaemonThanatos says:

    Nice. One of my old backpacks had that ability…and i STILL don’t know how my homework ended up back in my room. I swear i put it in the backpack…and felt a strange pulling sensation as i left the house…I think there might have been a wormhole in my backpack. I seem to get things that defy the laws of physics…
