#621 – Beep

Some things are better said in person instead of over the phone… especially in voicemail. I don’t think I’m very good at leaving voicemail messages. I tend to do a lot of stumbling and rambling. Lately I find I’ll just hang up and call again later. Save myself the trouble of having people call me and ask “What the heck are you on about?”

Today’s Halloween Biff avatar is hungry!

    “Hey, Mr. Henderson! You can take my job and shove it up your corporate butt for all I care, I won the freaking lottery! Don’t believe me? It says right here, on my ticket, 48 12 05 67 23 47 12! And the winning numbers are forty… five… Uh… Yeah, sorry Mr. Henderson I’ll be in on Monday. Overtime? Yes sir.*”

    I totally know that feeling D: It’s like the beep noise before a voice message erases just enough of my communication skills that I sound like a 4-year old was handed the phone by his parents in an attempt to be cute with relatives.

    I love how Biff is stuck in the early 90’s with a corded phone with a 30 foot cord.

    I looked at the picture and was confused, then I read the caption and almost fell out of my chair with laughter.

    When I leave messages, I lusually eave something so completely random and unrelated to anything that I really probably shouldn’t have left a message in the first place. =P

    My favorites are when I meow the chorus to a random song…or when I make up my own little song about the fact that I’m leaving a message. =)

    It’s a beautiful thing.

  12. Tia says:

    Boo to typos! BOOOO!!! *shakes her fist* Oh well. =P

  13. MaskedMan says:

    Certainly! He has a job, after all.

    I winced at this like most men wince if they see someone get kicked in sensitive areas.

    Also, today’s bifftar is terrifying.

  15. randomperson says:

    What’s really fun is getting those fake lottery tickets and watch the reaction. XD

    Glad to see I’m not the only one with that affliction. I hate answering machines and voicemail. I want to talk to the person and then the answering machine picks up and I have to quickly come up with a short summary of what I wanted to say. My mind doesn’t work that fast! So I end up hanging up and calling back later, usually being asked “Why didn’t you leave a message?” GAH!!!

    Forgetting to read carefully week!

    Or look before you leap week!

  18. Speakerblast says:

    im thinking of a new voicemail, something corny, like:

    *dance music playing*, oh, sorry, im a little busy partying, leave a message and ill call back as soon as i can!

  19. TomTom says:

    So here’s something cool. Chris’s artist friend Ali got featured in the calender behind Biff. You remember, way back when Biff Hypnotized himself,

  20. Reynard says:

    *Beep*? More like “Oh, *BLEEP*!!!”

  21. Reg says:

    Is the “beep” refering to the sound of the answering machine or a censored version of what Biff said upon realization? XD

  22. Someone gave me the idea to answer the phone with “City Morgue, you stab ’em, we slab ’em.”

    About the questions about Biff having a boss…I’ve finally come to the conclusion that Biff can change into whoever he needs to be for the next comic.

    Oh, and nice job bringing Ali back, I thought the calendar was a mummy in the preview.

  23. DTanza says:
