#387 – Hotel

My wife loves hotels. She likes picking them out, she likes exploring the hallways, she likes checking in, she likes flipping through the TV channels and seeing the unfamiliar local commercials. She has only ever had to stay in a hotel when she has gone on vacation. So hotels always mean she must be somewhere having fun.

    Hotels are really cool…except that I can hear my dad snore through their oh so thin walls…GUH! When I was littler, my sister and I always had to share a bed, and of course being siblings, we argued and stole eachothers sheets.

    Why is Biff at a hotel anyways?

  2. Sleepingorange says:

    I’m not a big fan of hotels. on the whole; they tend to be over-priced, uncomfortable, and un-hygienic. But then, I tend to be a home-body any-way, so…

  3. RFPT says:

    …nope, still don’t get it.

    RFPT’s traveling tip: always check the bible. there might be cash.

    I love hotels. free maid service, free internet that’s usually wifi, nifty key cards which I like to collect…

    I stayed at the Long Beach Hilton for Anime Expo. It was very nice, but it’s the furthest hotel from the Long Beach Convention Center and it’s the most expensive. Oh well, my friend was staffing so she got free convention parking and the room was free as well.

    I love hotels. I don’t get to stay in them very often though. I went to London and stayed in a lovely little hotel. I was a bit torn, though. I kind of wanted to stay in my hotel room and read, with a cup of tea on the bedside table, the window open and blowing in cool London air, and the BBC on the radio. But the rest of me said “You are in London, girl! Go out and see the sights!!”
    So I did. But I loved that hotel room.

    I work for Hard Rock Cafe, which in this Summer had a big Festival in Hyde Park, London. They flew in nearly 200 Hard Rock Employees from all over the world, including me. My first stay in a Hotel. And then an expensive one (Directly at the Hydepark, something like 150 Pound per Night in a Double-Room)… TV over twice as big as mine home… And a lobby full of Businessmen in their Suits and with their Briefcases and for this weekend after-work-partying working class People like me in their Jeans and Tshirts and their Beercases 😉 Was really really fun 🙂 hard work although, cooking for over 10k people on 2 days… But the Fun was worth it, especially as it was paid by company 😉

    But I don’t get the Joke today… Why has Biff a Crown?

  8. PsychoDuck says:

    @ Lex:

    King-sized bed 😀

    I had to look at this one for a while to get it, but it was great once it clicked!

    The Duck Has Spoken.

  9. pieman says:

    just imagine what Biff twins would look like.

  10. Nick Steele says:

    The joke is: I’m not going to explain it, ‘cos i understand it.
    I won’t ruin it for the rest of you 😉

  11. trueblaze says:

    …I don’t get it.

  12. Dranikos says:

    Well, they gave him a crown for a king-sized bed. That’s the only hint you get as to the joke…

  13. Khasa says:

    Neither do I.
    Oh, well, you win some you lose some.

  14. Seraphine says:

    I don’t know. Twins sounds like fun.

  15. Kanki-chan says:

    Ugh, I’ve been in different types of motels, from the really cruddy “good thing I’m ony staying for six hours to sleep” to the “ths is a really nice place.” The fanciest place I’ve been to is the WEstin Hotel in Seattle, where my cousins (who were staying there, not me) pointed out that people even took the time to fold the TP sheets. Then of course there was the motel I stayed at for helping with District Wrestling, which was sucky due to a lack of hot water and a stiff bed. Nuff said.

  16. MoosePhysh says:

    What kind of bed do you ask for to get chocolates on the pillow then?

  17. Lex says:

    Okay… Thx for the explanation… Now the punchline kicks in 🙂
    I’m German and a one-time-only hotel guest, where I even did not order or pay for it… So I didn’t know the expression “king-size bed”…

  18. Gobbledegook says:

    So when you go to a hotel, does your wife get to wear the crown, or do you?
    My wife insists that I bring her back a crown whenever I go to Burger King.
    She never lets me wear it. *jealous anger*

  19. Ben says:

    I would have preferred the twin size bed… a pair of twins in your room… heck yea!

  20. Kio says:

    I’d say that depends entirely on the twins, Ben.
    The World’s Fattest Twins from Family Guy would be decidedly less than pleasant.
    What if it was a twin of you sitting on your pilow? I’m not so much happy with the idea of having to spend a night sharing a bed with my doppleganger.

  21. Devi says:

    the best hotel i ever stayed at was a Laquinta inn up in Maine. i was there visiting my brother, and i remember the people there being really nice to me. once as i was leaving the lobby, the guy behind the desk heard me sneezing my head off (allergy season + maine = HELL), and gave me an entire box of kleenex he had back there.

  22. MasterMenthe says:

    Wow, this is Hilarious!

    Seeing as how so many people don’t get it, I’ll give them the most obvious clue possible.

    Remember the BK commercial with the “Wake up with the King” thing?

    If you didn’t, then there is NO WAY you can get this comic.

    Although, Chris, I just realized you haven’t had a Biffadventure (think misadventure) with Biff in a fast food place yet. Maybe He can go to BK and try to get a whopper ‘Just like he likes it’?

  23. Nikanaiko says:

    …With my luck, if I got the twin-sized bed room, I probably would have walked in, stepped on a dungbomb, noticed that the window was broken, and saw grafitti saying “F and G were here!”

  24. Dork-o-tron 4000 says:

    Hey, I heard about the Book of Biff in the Webcomics Weekly podcast.
    Way to get it out to the people!

  25. Vessol says:

    Ugh, some hotels suck. I stayed at this one once in St.Louis and woke up 3AM to gunshots down the street. The windows of the room were boarded up just incase as well.

  26. Colin says:

    i think it either means their upgrading from the mint on the pillow, or you really do get what you pay for….
    maybe it would have been Biff’s twin?

  27. Colin says:

    also… what would he get with a cot…?
    single means he stays the same…. i think….
    i think i might like queen… unless it was you had to serve her while she slept in the bed.
    i also slept in what the hotel called a Grande-luxeur(lug-joor) i think it was spelled.

  28. Colin says:

    oh, and we had a joke about a hotel me and my family had our reservation cancelled at called the Kima in St. Petersberg(burg?) florida.
    we got one next door, and would yell KIMA! every time we passed the first one.

    i need to remember things in one post.

  29. Colin says:

    oh and…

  30. birdie says:

    we went on a class field trip to maine a couple of years ago. i shared a bed with another girl, and the three boys that were on the trip, a set of twins and a friend of mine, shared another. i don’t know how that all worked, seeing as i am very sure the heater broke at least one and probably two of the three nights we stayed there.

    additionally, my family took a trip to california one summer, and we stayed in quite the variety of hotels. i refuse to ever sleep on a pull-out again.

    They say if you meet your doppelganger, you and they will die quickly thereafter. the only way to stop this is to kill them. They will also be trying to kill you, and the one who kills the other will gain their knowledge and strength.

  32. Alistair - UK says:

    nonono King Menthe, obviously he’s staying in the king size room.
    and @ Colin: its the Royal Mint! so naturally Biff must be in the royal suite!

  33. Nick Steele says:

    I’ve always thought that if i ever met my doppelganger, i’d hate the bastard.

  34. Ben says:

    I’m not sure about this. If the king sized room comes with a kings crown, does the twin sized room come with twins?

  35. Arachnion says:

    THe wierdest story I have about hotels is this: we where in Wahington, Missouri for my grandfather’s funeral. at around nine thirty on one of the obviously not for kids channels, a commercial came on for a Tv show. The show was meant to give consumers information they needed when buying things. Problem is, this show focused on only on type of item: sex toys. Furthermore, all the narration was carried out by a completely naked woman, and there where shots of some more…comprimising positions. I will remember that for the rest of my life.

  36. jykcor says:

    yeah…. i gots another story. i have one or two depending on the comic. check back a few comics, theyre entertaining.

    i had to stay in a hotel for… about (july, august, sept, oct, nov, dec, jan, feb) about 7 1/2 months. my house had water damage during a cross country trip for 2 weeks, and the fridges waterline broke. raining in the basement, etc. thank god it was a hampton inn, or ida went crazy. this was 3ish years back. we even passed by new orleans, and left, because my dad said he had a bad feeling. water damage there, small scale here.

  37. Cianan says:

    Ugh…For National Guard drill weekends, we sleep at a hotel, and one of my buddies had a horror story… Apparently the couple that had their room right next door to where he and his battle-buddy were billeted were having their honeymoon…LOUDLY….he got no sleep that night

  38. Felix says:

    Why would he not want twins…
    (Shot for being disgusting on a family comic strip)

  39. YukiSnowflake says:

    …Biff is in a hotel because his house ran away/got stolen.
    I’ve personally never been in a hotel, I don’t think.
    He shouls have gone with a single room, maybe the single would be interested in him?
    (On second thought, yeah right)

  40. Jenny Creed says:

    What would Biff’s twin be called? Fibb, Boff, Bob or maybe Rumpelstiltskin?

    It’d be great if we got to see him or her. . .if only to get evidence that there’s at least one other person in the world besides Biff.
