#993 – Whipple
Posted on April 1, 2010 at 12:00 am by Chris
Paper cuts are a minor injury but they are usually very frustrating based on their location. I mainly get them on my hands. A perfect place to continuously bump and scrape the cut 20 or 30 times an hour. It probably doesn’t help that I am constantly slathering my hands in alcohol gel sanitizer.
If you weren’t here on the magic day, here’s what people saw and were responding to below. I held back the comments of people that figured it out until the next day.Tags

… For a moment, I wondered if I went to xkcd by accident 😀 Coding bork ahoy! “It can be+ƒrus`‘[∂î≈=í#©ifÂFPÁ>¢m[……‰ﬂ–˚yhE£ÖImF∆oñî√qª∫º˘∑ŒèrÛsæG-|ÃOKg®nÆ⁄∑ÓÆ‡RﬁÎ˘≠Tº™øY⁄QPáj§^/◊GV◊ﬁp”
This one must be about web-page-updater goblins.
Someone broke biff!
OH nooo look at this mess on this day of April fooling
What the hell?
Yeah, I know this is the April Fool’s prank. I quit being fooled after the first one, but it’s still funny, nonetheless!
Dammit April 1st.
D’oh- Prank’d again!
oh my god, the quadratic formula exploded.
Either the picture isn’t appearing, or the random symbols are an April Fools joke.
Very classy. Happy april, everyone.
I see what you did there…

For the love of Gods! I can’t see anything!
If that stays so, you should change the format of your images!
Ready to convert the images in the smaller J-PEG?
Stop using such a big images, they don’t load all the time!
This was a message to our dearest Writer.
On the other hand, maybe it is my pc who can’t load the image.
Furthermore, he is already old, so it would be logical to assume so.
A shopping trip for a new PC, it seems.
Part of me always wishes PC’s wouldn’t age that fast.
Rather than buying a new PC, you could just keep the old one.
I believe that is the future!
Lovely people, follow me to that future, wherein PC’s don’t age!
I can’t figure out if you’re being clever with an April Fool’s joke and I’m just not getting it, or if the update actually got borked that badly.
I know exactly what you mean. Indeed it can.
april 1st… Kinda cryptic message and broken image… dunno what to think 😀
Oh no, the comic is all messed up! This is terrible, it’s almost as if – as if someone is pulling a prank on us! Whoever would do such a heinous thing on a perfectly normal day such as today?
It looks like your comic was eaten… by some Linux, or something…
April fools comic fail ahhhh!!!
I’m so sad right now. Happy April 1st, Chris. _^_
Happy April Fool’s to everyone!
I don’t want to know.
Happy April’s Fools to you too 🙂
Sometimes i hat April 1. 😉
And here I was thinkin9 17′”ea/W@#<<ĐđłÍőd . ˘1c}}w@ű¤ę.
You know, i just got it. April, Fools!
My first post on first place…
Oh noes! Biff seems to be under an error via… toilet paper… and I think the image is trying to say ‘sleep’ but it’s difficult to tell.
Ahh, the good ol’ april fools. *mwah!*
Yes, yes it can. =D
Uhoh. All messed up!
Or maybe not. I smell April Fool’s.
I know jçØØ;p¶ w§¾¿Þ y±% m×¦/ƍ.
I totally feel today’s comic, so true that it “It can be+ƒrus”. So true.
Oh, dear god. Thank you so much that this proverbial “fly on the wall” still has a few legendary “bugs in the system.”

Indeed it can, that’s pretty much all there is to say on the matter.
I hope the April fool’s joke isn’t me not being able to see the comic properly! Becaue all I see right now is:

Dude, the comic is broken.
oh noes!!1! a virus or something replace teh story w/ r4ndom characters ): n teh pic doesn’t w0rk
lulz april fools.
You broke your unicode.
Who’s Loof Lirpa?
… are we supposed to not be able to see this?
Ah No, it’s that day again.
I’m going back to bed till Saturday.
Yeah, that’s about right. Whipple is about a block from where I live and E£ÖImF∆oñî√qª∫º˘∑ŒèrÛsæG- describes it exactly. Æ‡RﬁÎ˘≠Tº™ however is a slight exaggeration.
Maybe it’s an April Fool’s Day joke
… and what day is it today? 😉
… It’s April Fool’s Day folks…
Remember what day it is… April Fools Day.
I can see a corrupted pic of biff sitting on the toilet, possibly twittering. The text is garbled though.
Perhaps the date might give some people a clue. 😉
Yeah I think this is an April Fool’s. XD Nice one!
I found the fix! In the url, enter 04/01/10 after the comic’s url. It should all become clear then.
Lol April Fools 😀
Ho no a fish have partly eaten the comic !!!
Ahh april 1st again?
Dude! There’s a prob%&#$ h*’)*$ğ”+@!æ?ç”)(-ñž
it’s april fools!! you’re all being fooled 😮
You do know what today is?
It’s funny how, every year, there a lot of people who don’t know what day it is.
That being said, I’m intrigued by toilet biff and await the real comic. For now I’ll just wait for Chris to hide my post and watch the other reactions. 😀
APRIL FOOLS DUDES
Hey peeps, time to check the date!
Wow, some people just don’t get it
I love it how every year the people don’t get the April’s Fool Joke : D
…stupid line noise, thought we got rid of that when I ditched dial-up…
Oh noeS! It’s the April2k-2048+1 bug!
Anyone notice the date?
Am I the only one who thinks this is an April Fools Day prank? I mean it’s kind of a lame one but it could be a prank.
Think about it…. the post hints at frustration.
It looks to say:
“The toilet paper goblins only attack when disturbed from their sleep.”
I have NO idea whats going on!
Must be the poop monsters interfering with the inter-tubes.
I believe this is an April Fools page!
I’m not sure if this is some form of a subtle sarcasm or meta humor, but can those here so far have really overlooked that today is April Fool’s day?
and today’s date is…
On purpose is my guess. Is it just me or all the avitars commented so far. Or at least a lot of them the same
Duh, April first. Darn exam time making me loose track of the dates. My guess was right about the on purpose and such although it took me a moment to get it.
Gotta love April 1st
Long time reader, first time commenter…
I refreshed two times before I figured it out…
I’m guessing April fools? =p
I’m suddenly reminded of lasagna…
oh hey, look at the date, think it might be time for an april fools joke?
First line ends with “attack”, second ends with “from their sleep” and I think the word “gremlins” is in there somewhere, but… Is this an April’s Fool joke?
Hmm, I wonder what today’s date is?
Are the sixth mythical creatures this week Avatars?
Darn goblins messin everything up! :p
Very good joke… at first it didn’t load at all… probably all the people trying to refresh the “broken” image slowing it down ;)… PS: it’s way past 12 here already 😀
So, no one noticed the date then?
Ha ha, brilliant!
Oh, please. Can’t you tell? It’s clearly A(%$*%&(%)^)£@:}¬!
…Clever April Fool’s o.O
April Fools, you guys are morons…..
Happy March 32nd everyone!!
i love april fools day….
In regards to your comic strip, I find that on this fine day, the 32nd of March I believe, I have to remark that you’ve made quite a marvelous addition to an already marvelous collection.

Happy April’s Fools day.
seriously… I hate this day.
Nice April Fool’s idea! Although the gag of April Fool’s ironically takes some humor out of the comic…
Enjoy April Fool’s!
alas this shall be hidden till later but this has to be one of the best april fools comics yet, thank you for brightening my day by alowing me to read all the angry comments
All I see is “It can be frust…” in the story part below the comic. So, part of me wonders if this was intentional…
OH MY GOSH! THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TODAY!
does nobody else get it? i could be wrong but what i interperate from this is he has an etch a sketch, and accidentally shook it while drawi–
no wait ignore me, i have a vivid imagination
Do’h! Just remembered, its april fools day!
wow. lots of people don’t get April fools shenanigans.
April fools day today. Just putting that out there.
Lovin the april foolin!
I was lost at first.. then I remembered..
Gah, can’t read the caption. 🙁
. . . I wonder how long it will take some of these commenters to realize it’s April Fool’s Day . . . .
I hate April Fools Day. LOL
C’mon, Hallbeck, get off the dime and fix yer darn comic … please.
or… it’s April Fools Day..
April Fools ate Biff…
Urhm… april fools?
Is it an April fools joke that no one can see it’s an April fools joke? I thought by this time, people would be prepared for this day on the internet.
Almost completely certain this is an April Fools thing people..
Maybe it has something to do with today 🙂

Sorry, I meant “…really insert..” not “…insert really…” – hope I didn’t offend anyone with the mix up, and I’m sorry if I did.
Can anyone say… April Fools! I got tricked by your no eyebrows, your speech bubbles… well no longer!!
I love how no one realizes he had to INTENTIONAL garble the image in his drawing program. Think about the date people….
You people do realize it’s April Fool’s day right? xD
The world, it’s tearing itself apaaaaaaart!
The Duck Has Spoken.
@Most Everybody- Are y’all kidding me? Does _nobody_ remember what certain prank filled holiday today is ?
Looks like it worked! (it even got me for a second, I’ll admit it)
Happy April Fool’s Day!
GUYS!!! hey, April 1st??? Hello? possible connection? Geez…
Hahaha, I love what you’re trying to say with this one! It’s really deep…probably one of your most intellectual ones yet!
happy april fools
mobile phones get bad reception in bathrooms
Hey, guys… April Fools?
April Fools. I predict that there are about a dozen ‘April Fools’ comments hung up in the moderation queue until tomorrow… 😛
Note the date, people. 😛
The joke is actually quite obvious.
On a related note, the comic displays biff on a toilet, with a gun in a mailbox, and some sorta flip phone.

I can’t make out the first couple words, but the rest seems to be “… paper cut gremlins only attack when disturbed from their sleep.” I think the comic got paper-cut… oh, and by the way, it is April 1, so this was probably intentional.
April Fool’s anyone?
The comic is corrupted for the same reason that Google changed their name for.
Something makes its attack when obscured from her sleep?
It is angry and something paper?
It can be frustrating not to be able to read something you count on being able to read.
You do know It’s April First, Right?
Does anyone know what day it is? My calendar is missing a page. 😉
Ho-my thats funny.

Happy April Fools Everyone
wait, who is the guy in the last pic?
‘Tis April Fools day.
No-one else has caught on that it’s April Fools Day? For shame…
Yay! It’s really frustrating!
Have none of you ever heard of April Fools day? Sheesh.
Lol and a happy April Fool’s day to you too.
Waiiiit a second. My comment is “awaiting moderation?” Are you blocking everyone who knows it’s AF day? Clever, quite clever. But I guess if this comment shows up I’ll be wrong. Happy AF either way.
Come on guys, let’s think of what the day is today
Seriously…. April Fool’s Day…. Anyone?
Wow.. you guys do realize it’s April Fools, right? I’m guessing it’s supposed to be like that.
Am I the only one that thought it’s a joke about pictures getting corrupted when sent from mobile phones?
I understand it perfectly.
I know it’s hard to get but all you have to do is refresh the page, right click on the image and open in new window. Then you close that window, come back to this page, and look at the date.
This is a joke about loosing reception on your iphone while browsing.
So many people don’t get it it’s like an unintentional April fools joke :p
The Book of Biff: updating via fax machine since April fools, 2010.
Hah! Its April first, people!
ITS SUPOSED TO BR THIS WAY
Come on, people! Check your calendars! Great comic.
Has no one looked at today’s date?
I knew it was a joke, and I still hit Refresh.
Hahahaha Chris! This is better than last year’s! Kudo Chris! Kudo!
Nobody here gets it.
It’s April Fool’s day today.
He’s messing with us.
“_______________ a paper cut gremlins only attack when disturbed from their sleep.” I can’t figure out the first part though.
it’s obviously an april fool’s joke saying that his scanner or whatever he uses to upload his comics is fubar. 😛 but regardless I am still curious about what the actual comic would say!
L2 April Fools Guys.
Um, guys. I’m pretty sure the quality of the comic is an April Fool’s prank. We’re not supposed to be able to read it.
Ohhh, I get it.
You realize today’s date, don’t you -.-
Nice April fool 🙂
probably an april fools joke guys I mean seriously
try again tomorrow, when its not april fools
really people? look at the date.
you people really don’t get the joke?! XD
People seem to forget what day it is today. 😛
You guys need to remember it’s April 1st….
I swear no one is ever aware when april fools sneaks up
Don’t you guys ever look at your calendars? 😛
It’s an April Fools prank, ya’ll…
He spilled paper on the comic..get it?
yo. April’s fools.
I see what you did there. lol 😉
Great April Fools. It seems like it WORKED on EVERYONE HERE.
You buffoons in the comment section! It’s a damn april fools joke so you can stop whining about it.
IT’S. APRIL. FOOLS. DAY. How has no one caught on to this?
April Fools…Love it!
I smell April Fools on your face!
Guys…I repeat. It is APRIL FOOL’S DAY.
Do I need to remind everyone what day is today?
For those not in the United States:
I don’t wanna ruin it.
I donmt know whats freakier…. I think this is the theme for the week or everyones avatars are so darned freaky.
Ah yes, didnt get me Chris. Nice try. 😛
Uhhh, people, April 1st. get it? 🙂
Bwahahaha, that’s great. :]
Is the april fools joke that the comic is broken?
happy april first?
Happy April Fool’s Day, everyone!!!
Happy April Fools day, biff!
you know, there’s a funny day called April 1st… and there is a tradition to play pranks on this day…
Figure it out
April fools much?
Seriously… no one? April fool’s!
Get a calendar people- dont you know what day it is?
Did everyone forget what today is? Nice one Chris
doesn’t anyone notice the date?
I see what you did there, subtle *chuckle*
nobody gets it 😛
happy april fool’s everyone. i’m guessing that’s why we can’t read it, and biff’s on the john?
a side of biff i sure never wanted to see….lol
It took me a second to figure out how the paper changer was involved but now I’ve got it. Very well done sir!
seriously?? Folks, look at the date…. at least the Americans should get it.
Happy April 1st, kids. ;p
I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE, HALLBECK! *shakes his fist at the comment moderation*
Dear Everyone Else,
Look At The Date This Comic Was Posted
Either your readers are in cahoots and I’m left out of the party, or I’m simply the only one who knows what today is. 😛
Apparently I’m the only one who noticed it’s April Fools today…
all i can make out of the text is that something (toilet paper?) only attacks when disturbed from it’s sleep…. otherwise i’m not entirely sure if the comic is supposed to be all glitchy or not >_< blah
Cimon, guys, check the date on your timestamps
Um. Guys? April 21st, 2010? It might be an April Fool’s joke of some sort?
..if not, do fix your site Mr Hallbeck.
Happy April Fool’s Day everyone!
Hasn’t ANYONE noticed the date?!?!
This is the funniest Book of Biff yet.
Did y’all forget, ITS APRIL FOOLS! Could this be his prank?
This is obviously April fools, guys, be smart…
Really guys? It was April Fools…
I think it says something like ‘Twitter tresspass paper his on attack when absorbed from their sleep.’
However, this makes very little sense to me.
You all are aware of the date right?
I have a feeling its intended to be garbled. It looks like it might be a scanning error.. BUT the typed text is garbled too. It’ll probably be revealed when the next upload is. Its april the first too.. or was.
Uh folks… it’s obviously an April Fool’s prank.
04/01… Y’think perhaps this was intentional? (For those who didn’t remember April Fools Day)
Awesome joke, Chris! You are so friggin awesome!
If you don’t get it this is an April Fools joke! Chris did this to the comic on purpose! Ha ha ha!
Wait what? It cleared up?
I liked it better when it was a mess. =P
Lolz, I though the April Fools page was a legitimate joke about losing reception on an iphone:p (I don’t actually have an iphone so that was a guess, but that looks A LOT like he’s using a touch-phone, doesn’t it?)
I don’t know what I’m more surprised by: the fact that I didn’t see that it was an april fool’s joke, or the fact that I was able to read most of it when it was garbled!
… did you have some script to block all comments containing the words april fools?cause a lot of those comments above my earlier post were not there when i made it…
HAHAHA. I love how myself and everyone else thought we were the only person who realized what day it was.
Besides MaskedMan, who is smarter than us all.
Strange, I never got this update in my RSS reader 🙁
lol, smart of Chris to moderate all the people who got the joke, kept it pure for those who didn’t. 😀

@ cultist434, howdyhamster, etc.. how did you guys do that messy font? =O
And I figured it’s April fools thing… but is there some way to read the “It can be+ƒrus`‘[∂î≈=í#©ifÂFPÁ>¢m[……‰ﬂ–˚yhE£ÖImF∆oñî√qª∫º˘∑ŒèrÛsæG-|ÃOKg®nÆ⁄∑ÓÆ‡RﬁÎ˘≠Tº™øY⁄QPáj§^/◊GV◊ﬁp” bit? Like how when I was little I though “l33t” was just gibberish… or when my friend wrote a blog entry in wingdings and I translated it by copy and pasting onto Word and changing the font… can something like those be done to translate this passage?
Well, my prediction was right… if you multiply 25! 😛
I think that the real prank here was that no one who knew it was an April’s fools prank could be seen until today. Nonetheless, I like it!
It’s been Chris’ tradition to moderate the April Fool’s Day comments. So the REAL fools were all those who thought they were the first to realize the joke and tried to clue “everyone else” in, only to have their comments masked along with the rest.
