#593 – Testudines

Back when I was a teenager I used to house sit for our neighbor. They didn’t have any pets or anything so there wasn’t really much I had to do other than just keep a general eye on the place. I liked it because they had a fancy record player and stereo. I could go over there and listen to music or talk on the phone as if at age 13 I owned my own home.

    The turtle only gets them because the spliced the cable lines.

    And… made them invisible at the same time.

    Yes, this still fits in with the theme I thought it was. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. W00t!

    I thought he was using it as a ViewMaster for a minute. 3d Cable is much nicer.

    Before I saw the caption, I thought it was a turtle sandwich.

  5. Kandice says:

    I thought it was a turtle staring contest!

    I think if Biff positioned his eyebrows carefully, he could get some channels directly into his brain!

    Only until February ’09 though 🙁

    I guess this comic goes with the saying “The grass is greener on the other side.” except the grass is technology. 😛

  8. Chris says:

    I agree looks like a turtle viewfinder although a turtle sandwich would be amusing.

    I’m not quite clear on why Biff is house sitting the turtles house if the turtle is still there though, is this some kind of kinky game Biff and the turtle have going on between them?

    I just realized that the period is the only puncuation in biff comics…
    I think.

    @Chris – The turtle isn’t there. He left town for the annual turtle skinny dipping weekend.

  11. “I could go over there and listen to music or talk on the phone as if at age 13 I owned my own home.”

    I want someone to ask me to housesit because I’m slightly older than that and I’m sure I’d get all *excited*

  12. MaskedMan says:

    Tortise-shell glasses..?

    I guess this would make Biff a ‘peeping tom.’

  13. William Syler says:

    Peoples!! He’s only house-sitting for the turtle! Poor guy needed a break from his stressful and demanding life, so he went to “the annual turtle skinny dipping weekend.” (I loled. That’s great, Chris!)

    The Random Comic button doesn’t seem very random after it sent me here 6 times in a row.

  15. Zaffa says:

    That`s gotta be one tiny screen in there…

  16. no name says:

    I don’t get it. Why would looking through a turtle shell get more channels.

  17. Cpt.Ziggy says:

    the turtle has cable dude!

  18. no name says:

    Ohh I thought the turtle had its own house, and that’s where Biff was.

  19. MadDavid says:

    A turtle’s shell IS it’s house 🙂

  20. MadDavid says:

    sigh *its*

  21. Speakerblast says:

    i wonder where the mailbox for the turtle’s cable bill is…

  22. trevor says:

    Took me so long to understand the joke.

  23. Chris says:

    @Speakerblast – The turtle pays his bills online.

  24. AdmiralChaos says:

    Ah the power of technology. Did anyone even for a second consider that said turtle’s cable might have a wireless transmitter?

    Yeah that doesn’t quite sound right to me either. Ohwell.

  25. MadDavid says:

    I got the joke as soon as I read the caption.

    Of course, *I’m insane*
