#598 – Vitula

I hate when I go to make a delicious sandwich and find that the bread is moldy and I have to throw it out. It doesn’t just happen with bread though. Moldy sausage: garbage. Moldy leftover pizza: garbage. Moldy bag of peaches that were on sale: garbage. Moldy birthday cake: (hey, how did we not eat all the cake?) garbage. Moldy broccoli: (have we ever actually eaten brocolli… I think we just perpetually have some rotting in the refrigerator) garbage. Moldy block of cheddar: trim off the green parts and eat!

    biff likes his cheese….. so do i.

  2. Kingston says:

    Tuning the instrument correctly gives the cheese that extra kick of flavor =D

  3. Jean says:

    Moldy broccoli is nasty. All those sulfur compounds.

  4. Torg says:

    Biff has the same type of cheese slicer that I do! I like those; they make awful noises when you slice wrong, so they help train you in the art of slicing cheese.

  5. SEA says:

    Adkward use of instrument. Heh. XD

  6. Dzelda says:

    What the heck? Did you just imply that you ate the green parts of the cheese!?!?!?

  7. Metal Matt says:

    That actually just happened to me today.

    I went to make a sandwich and the bread was moldy, so I threw it out and went to buy more. When I came back, i opened the deli meats (turkey and salami) to find that they had both gone bad too.

    What the hell am I gonna do with all this bread? If only someone on this comment board turned out to be a duck… >_>

    …I just realized The Duck hasn’t spoken since Sept. 12th.

    I’m sad now 🙁

  9. The Dustin says:

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but the only long sleeve shirt Biff might ever wear is the straight jacket to keep from hitting himself in his sleep?

  10. Ogg says:

    I truly understand your point. We, French, don’t see much difference between mold and cheese.

  11. Chris says:

    My mom was terrible at sending me to school with a sandwich that may have been fine in the morning but definitely on the questionable side and by the time lunch rolls around the bread has turned a bit moldy. So at that point I can either throw it away and starve, continue eating it, or tear off the moldy bits and eat it. I usually opted for tearing off the moldy bits, unless I was already half way through the sandwich, then I’d just keep going.

    Now I have an iron stomach so it was good training.

  12. RG says:

    Never experienced that before. Hope I never will.

  13. Micah says:

    I didn’t know those could be used for music. Thanks, Biff!

  14. Cpt.Ziggy says:

    did he go to vienna for his training?

  15. arnwulf says:

    his hands look a bit odd to me…

  16. MaskedMan says:

    I’ve got one of those slicers, too. You’ve got to make sure you start slicing on the E-string side, or you wind up getting crumbs of cheese gumming up the works.

    @Dzelda, Ogg;
    Mmmmmm… Moldy cheese..!

  17. Dennis says:


    I have one of those — bought for playing outside on the streets in the rain — and actually my violin builder remarked it would make a better cheese slicer than instrument, having a stupendously high pressure on the strings.

    I was really happy finding this Biff comic here today 🙂

  18. The Scarf says:

    I hate discovering moldy bread….it’s all grody….what’s worse is when the cheese gets so moldy, no amount of slicing and rinsing and whatever else will get rid of the moldy aftertaste. That’s the saddest thing of all….

  19. Meta says:

    I bet he hasn’t realized the toaster does a pretty good job at getting wrinkles out of shirts, either.

  20. Frank says:

    Hmm. I have a fiddlebow bread slicer. Now it makes more sense. I would think the serrations would be hard on the cheese slicer, but with a little finesse…

  21. SharkJumper says:

    Meta: not unless you put water in the toaster, which only Biff would try.

    Fungi anchor and feed themselves with cilia. So cutting off the visibly moldy bits doesn’t always cut it. My vegan cheese would always go bad, because it would be overrun by two different molds 10 days after opening. Resealable packaging has saved me ~$15 already.

  22. no name says:

    Wow I was JUST playing violin, just an hour ago. Or is that a viola???

  23. Zaffa says:

    I just got a huge one-a those. Now I can finally grate up that 60-pound cheese wheel I won a week ago!

  24. Qskecksget says:

    Pfft… violins…

  25. Torg says:

    @Metal Matt: Yeah, I guess that Psycho Duck was scared away when he joined the forums.

  26. Speakerblast says:

    I tried to play a violin once…

    I’ll stick with guitar.

    PS. we miss you Psycho duck

  27. draq says:

    The problem with bread is they always have the labels and nutritional information on the rear of the package, so you have to take the bread out to notice mold.

  28. FSOneblin says:

    This reminds me of something…
    Grandma: But that cheese is out of date, it will get moldy!
    Gram-pa: then it becomes (insertchesenamehere)

    It went something like that…

  29. Chuck says:

    I never encounter moldy food in my fridge. I eat it or throw it out before then.

  30. Chivalrybean says:

    I have, in fact, used an old high E string to replace a cheese slicer wire.

  31. MARIE says:

    hahaha de va ju en rolig sak

  32. Allie says:

    Careful, Biff! You may end up snapping the G string!

  33. YukiSnowflake says:

    I lol-ed at your misinterpretation of what he said.
    what he MEANT to say was this:
    Moldy block of cheddar: eat!
