#252 – Apple

Back in grade school there was a big razor blade apple scare one year. Apparently a kid in another school actually bit into an apple with a razor blade in it. There was a letter that we had to bring home from school to our parents to warn them about it. Years later I was talking with a friend about stupid things we did as a kid. He told me how he took a bite out of an apple and then stuck a razor blade into it and showed it to his parents as a joke. They freaked out and called the police. It was funny to find out that such a famous story at my school started as just a joke a kid was playing on his parents.

    My mother used to be paranoid about Halloween candy being laced with drugs/razors and whatnot…nevermind the fact that we lived in a neighborhood that everyone knew everyone in. Some parents eh?

    And, first comment.

    Last Halloween there was some kid at school passing out chocolate kisses laced with laxatives. In a way it was sorta funny to see which kids had the high metabolisms.

  3. Major_Geek says:

    That’s nothing compared to the parents who will go and get the candy x-rayed before their kid can touch it. People shouldn’t be afraid of such little things, it detracts from the enjoyment that can be derived from life.

    I wonder if this could be considered Biff’s style of emo?

  5. wortcov says:

    mmmm, razorblades… :3

  6. Nathan says:

    Yow, painful much?
    and how did he get them into he forehead? o.o
    they’re in the apples after all D:

  7. Garrett says:

    Wait, so he actually ENJOYS biting into the razor blades and does it MORE THAN ONCE?! He’s clearly a masochist.
    Also, “Biff” should be “Biff’s”.

    Chips hurt more.

  10. dragonbrad says:

    are the apple grown that way or are they stuck in. bobbing for coconuts is my favorite party game

  11. dragonbrad says:

    the balloons are floating up-side-down. o.O

  12. Robert says:

    Ow, ow!! Oh God no!!

  13. Marcus Dranz says:

    Nevermind the ones in his face, what about the ones in his MOUTH?

    I wanna know where Biff got his… Oh, yeah, I explained that one, didn’t I?

  14. Chris says:

    Thanks Garrett, fixed it.

  15. Otacon says:

    The horror. I love apples.

  16. kenshin620 says:

    …for some reason…this makes absolute sense to me

  17. Hunter says:

    Owwwww is all I can think.

  18. Nova Namina Riff says:

    0_0…..Sweet lord allmighty that HAD to hurt. At least he’s getting his iron…or are they titanium blades?

  19. Reikon Ame says:

    I have only one thing to say to that, if the kid took a bite of that apple and found a razor blade HOW DID THAT RAZOR BLADE GET IN THERE TO BEGIN WITH!!!! I mean come on it is common sense to know it was put there, I don’t think the trees are starting to draw razor blades as well. I don’t see how a school could be that stupid I mean come on…….they all had to be high simply because of that fact. That they thought that more apples had razor blades in them. You would see where the razor blade was added too wouldn’t you…..and I think I should cut this rant very short.

    The best Halloween I’ve had as an adult was while visiting friends and it was nippy cold outside. One house had a huge container of hot chocolate on the porch. It was sooo good, I had two mugs of it. The cocoa could have been laced with who-knows-what, but it felt right.

    do you know they make bottles with pears or apples inside?
    they put the bottles around the blossoms and then the pear or apple grows in the bottle…
    now, imagen what would happen if you attached a razor blode to the blossom… the apple would grow around the razor, thus creating an razorblade apple 😉

    >the balloons are floating up-side-down. o.O

    ever thought about the fact they might be filled with air instead of helium? 😛

  23. Scipo says:

    Did anyone else think of Firefly when they read Chris’ after-story about kids biting into apples with razor blades in them? That would suck and all, but not nearly as much as biting into an apple with explosives in it. Yeah, that’d suck a lot.

  24. Squall says:

    Biff’s shirt is surprisingly dry of water and blood for playing this game. And I LIKE the balloons that are floating upside down. Also, I thought the apples were human hearts or something before I scrolled to the text.

    well maybe he had trouble with the gravity people, maybe they screwed up his gravity

  26. dragonbrad says:

    oohh told by a monkey, no really, i know wind-up-monkey.

  27. I think this is the first time Biff has actually tried to hurt himself directly. This is a sign~!

  28. 1234 says:

    did anyone notice the razor blade in the back of his head
    he must of been trying really hard to get that apple

  29. genocidefire says:

    Comnig soon to a theater near you: Biff as Pinhead in HELLRAISER: Apple of Sodom.

  30. Nikanaiko says:

    xD Biff… That’s not a very good thing to do. Whatever you do, don’t take the razors out until you have bandages nearby.

  31. Mr dude says:

    Hey does biff actually use his teeth or does he use the razor blades to pick them u- you know what i don’t want to think about it i’m just going to go puke out my lungs somewhere…

  32. DomanickX says:

    We now know biff likes razor apples

  33. dragonbrad says:

    i noticed he is the only one at the party

  34. hmm… maybe biff wanted to shave, and get a snack at the same time!

  35. P. Reaper says:

    Raze Blade Apples, you know its fresh the more you bleed. 😀

  36. Taz says:

    I seriously thought that was a ballgag, until I saw the apples in the water. I was.. rather terrified. Ahaha. I don’t think I’ll be able to eat another apple for a while.

  37. Steven says:

    No people, he’s not deliberatly hurting himself. The razors just make it more of a challenge to get them. Seriously folks.

  38. darkenedhalo says:

    That would hurt like hell. But biting down on a blasting cap would hurt even more. I worked with Schlumberger Oil Field Services, and when we did our training, they showed us a picture of a guy who was using his teeth to crimp a blasting cap for perforating oil wells. Not a pretty picture, and somehow the guy lived, didn’t even lose consciousness. Razorblades would hurt a hell of a lot less.

  39. Ela says:

    At first, I thought that the balloons were hanging from his eyebrows… Then I got a closer look.

  40. calan ree says:

    Taz i thought it was a ball gag too on first glance. Sick minds think alike. 🙂

  41. Wolfie says:

    I’m sure it’s the danger that makes it fun.

  42. Malachite Dragon says:

    Emo Biff… T.T

  43. RedWolf says:

    I recall being told that people would jam razor blades in between sections of these giant waterslides that were in an aquatics centre that we went to.

    Never been since.

  44. Caitlin says:

    When I was in year one my primary school banned Twisties (I’m not sure if they exist in America, but they were my favourite chip/snack/doo-whatsit at the time) because some kid put a paperclip through one and said it was there when they opened the packet. There was a massive uproar, lots of Twisties were recalled and whatnot, and then it came out that it had been a kid being stupid. My mother was (and still is >.>) paranoid, and sadly refused to accept that there was no risk in letting me eat Twisties. I haven’t had them since 🙁

    … mostly because I am now too broke to afford the whole $1.60 or so that they cost >.>

  45. Hmmm. I’ve just eaten some apples but now I want some more. Without razor blades though.

  46. sasuke says:

    LOL that sounds fun!!!!

  47. Darkpheonix XIII says:

    I buy my own candy, and eat it before anyone knows it’s there.

  48. Maniac says:

    I would eat apples and use razor for shaving. But razor apple… It’s 2 in 1! What a product!

  49. Unkindle says:

    I have heard that in all the Halloween candy X-rayed nothing has ever been found!

  50. Elkian says:

    Would x-rayed candy be radioactive? *gets Geiger meter*
    …I know someone whose last name is Geiger.

  51. steve-o says:

    He’s clearly playing NINJA party games! He’s at a ninja party!

  52. solar says:

    acully that whole poison candy thing is a myth the kid that Did eat poisoned candy got it from an evil relative

  53. Shana says:

    Reminds me of one Halloween… We bought some caramel apples, one of my favorites, and when I bit into one, I bit into a nice chunk of shrapnel with traces of mercury. I was sick for weeks. And ever since, I’ve been terrified of anything apple related from stores.

  54. TCC says:

    lol, this reminds me of an old halloween simpsons episode where chief wiggum was checking the kids candy
    “safe… safe… razor blade… syringe… OHH WHITE CHOCOLATE! O.O”

  55. the walrus says:

    Scipo-yeah, i thought of that too. I personally think that the razor blades add a nice mettalic after taste to the apples, and generally improve the quality of any food they are added to.

  56. Random says:

    Poisoned Candies aren’t really a myth- anything can be tampered with if a person is foul enough or cruel enough to do it. I still remember some Trick or Treating outings I returned home from, as a kid, and my mom would first go thru my haul and there was always candies she would throw away. But she would show me WHY.

    Unwrapped candies, suspicious candies that seemed to have been unwrapped-rewrapped, or ones with suspicious holes in them.

    I am not saying that I condone acting full blown paranoid and going thru Secret Service alike security acts to deem the candy safe, but as a parent, you need to error on the side of caution for things like this.

  57. SurveySays says:

    I dont care what you say a tough chip going down the wrong way is as bad or worse than any razorblade 0.o
