#606 – Sneetches

That was always a weird feeling when I was a kid and realized that I was getting bigger. I didn’t remember getting bigger, it always snuck up on me. All of the kids my age seemed to stay the same but the new kids coming into school each year were getting smaller and smaller. I was always shocked when I would find an old shirt or pair of pants in my room and be unable to put it on. When did my legs get so long?

I’ll start the pre-order for Biff’s star shirt on Monday. It will only come in a child’s medium.

    I would never have guessed Biff was about 40y.o. Or is Biffverse not contemporary with the present?

    It happens… =p

    Well, wouldn’t it be thrilling to see a cat like that o-o

    Memorys week?

  4. Micah says:

    @Trevor, yeah…maybe Nostalgia week.

    Does he archivate his clothes on name?

    I love authentic 60’s and 70’s clothes unfortunately everyone back then was small so I can’t wear any of that stuff unless I wanna sound squeaky.

    If it’s wrong to find that attractive, dangit I don’t wanna be right.

    i know what that is like.

  10. Awaiting one of the strips to be about some of the retro games we grew up on. A long time ago.
    And for those who recognise me, even further back than Doom, k? 😛

    Amazing how those still fit.

  12. MaskedMan says:

    Huh. Stars upon thars, eh?

    I think I’ve got some 70’s concert t-shirts around here somewhere. They’d probably shatter if I tried to unfold them, though. Why DO I keep them around still?

  13. Jackson says:

    Wait, Biff was a CHILD once?!

  14. Ian says:

    I guess he had to be…although I though he spawned from some radnom pile of goo and has stayed the same age, height for his whole life.
    It’s sad to know that biff could one day die…of old age 🙁

  15. Cpt.Ziggy says:

    Biff is clearly a imortal, like from highlander.

  16. thinkaboutit says:

    @Cpt.Ziggy: i can see it now two biffs one laying on the floor with his head cut off the other holding his sword above his head screaming ‘There can only be one!!’

    this is my first post btw love the stuff Chris it makes a humdrum workday fly by ^^

    I can still wear my D.A.R.E. T-shirt from 5th grade, and a sweet jaguar T-shirt I won in 6th grade. I’m now a senior in college. I think I’ll still be wearing them when I’m retired.

    Ew. Good Old Times week? Not my favorite.

  19. Zaffa says:

    Muffin Top Alert!!!

  20. TheMusicGuy says:

    Wait…so you’re NOT supposed to keep wearing shirts from your childhood after you go to college? *dumps out dresser drawers*

  21. Speakerblast says:

    Nice boxers!

  22. MadDavid says:


    In your scenario, we’d still have two biffs. I like biff, but one is enough.

  23. Twilightfairy says:

    Hmm, i always wondered what it would have been to live in the 70’s and or 60’s during the hippie movement.

    If it was as colorful as the style i think i would have blended right in.

    Like biff.

    He blends in anywhere!

  24. Torg says:

    @Jackson: There have been at least two comics directly stating that Biff has grown up, and I believe a couple more that implied it.

  25. RedPhillip says:

    The boxers – at least the fabric pattern – seem anachronistic to me. I suspect Biff had the shirt and the trousers tucked away, but no way would ’70’s era boxers survive. I was there, as something resembling an adult. I [i]know.[/i]

  26. Chris says:

    @RedPhillip – I didn’t mean to imply that the boxers were vintage… just that his pants don’t fit anymore. 🙂


  27. AndyT13 says:

    I wantz me that shirt (adult size please) AND the boxers LOL.
    Fer realz! Also the brown bellbottoms. LOLSpeak FTW

    Growing up is frightening. I’m scared to even think about it, it makes me sooo depressed. I feel like I didn’t appreciate being a kid enough and now the time’s gone..

  29. YukiSnowflake says:

    …thanks to Ian up at the top, i just had a brainwave.
    (*it nearly cost my life, but… a-anyway*)
    On Sims 3 (*i play it OCCASIONALLY*) if you’re sim is a loser or unlucky, they can only die of old age.
    Does that make biff unlucky? cos he DEFINETLY AIN’T A LOSER!!!
