#43 – Coffee

I’m not a coffee drinker but I do wear glasses. Coffee is one of those things that I got turned off to as a kid. My mom would drink it every once in a while and I would tast it out of curiosity. It was way too bitter for my kid tastebuds. As I grew up my dislike for coffee was compounded by horrible people that gave out coffee flavored candy to me at halloween. I would unwrap a nice friendly looking piece of candy and pop it in to my mouth expecting something chocolate or maybe root beer and seconds later have to spit it right out. Most everyone else I know can’t live without coffee. I witnessed many an argument over who is supposed to fill the coffee machine at work. At least Starbucks sells hot chocolate. When I’m with a group of people that need to make a Starbucks run I still get a nice warm cup to hold in my hand so I don’t have to feel like a total outsider.

    He takes a lot of damage to the head doesn’t he?

  2. Chris says:

    I think his head is the least intelligent part of his body. πŸ™‚

  3. Lorcan D says:

    I enjoy the fact that it takes him a few tries to get things right, but he never seems to actually ‘get it right’! And I agree with Chris.
    amanda, you’re right, lots & lots of damage to the head! lol

  4. r says:

    I know exarctly how you feel.
    I actually find myself drinking coffee at work sometimes (I have been habilitated to the flavour through a sort of medicinal use on mornings after long nights) and stopping and thinking, “wait, I donΒ΄t actually LIKE coffe”.

  5. TKort says:

    Amen Chris, coffee is evil and slowly taking over our civilization (should civilization be in quotes?). I mean, look at Biff.. there are hidden dangers.. he probably can’t wait to get his next cup..

  6. Cat L says:

    I like the milkshakes at Starbucks. I especially like going into a Starbucks and ordering a small/medium/large milkshake.

  7. Chryssta says:

    I hate coffee, but like capacino, uhm, cappachino? The stuff thats made from coffee but has enough additives that it tastes so much better. (it remains a rare treat i get twice a year).

  8. The Bird says:

    wait…………..(insert squeeky hamster wheel noise here)……….HE WEARS GLASSES!!!!!!

  9. Naylyn says:

    Thats a serious danger to those of us that wear glasses…

  10. Fenix says:

    Mm.. I only like very sweet frapuccinos =P… Thankfully I don’t wear glasses, and I don’t depend on coffee xD…

  11. PeterC says:

    Worse still never buy washing up liquid in one of those clear bottles when it is the same colour as the olive oil. Washing up liquid in a frying pan doesn’t work quite the same.

  12. zantarath says:

    Biff is going to end up as stupid as Fighter. (Reference to 8-Bit Theater)

  13. sandy says:

    is that tim hortons coffee? because tim hortons coffee is like 5000 degrees Celsius when they give it to you. I think its the only coffee that could light your face of fire.

  14. Wannabeelf says:

    Starbuks does make excelent hot chocolate. their lattes are kind of bitter because ot the beans they use. i still love their carmel Machiattos thought–they’re the second sweetest drink on the menu after hot chocolate. if you ever tried a carmel machiatto, i wouldn’t be surprised it it changed the way you feel about coffee–it certainly did me.

  15. Female Fox Furry says:

    Apparently his glasses are rather heavy, explaining why he so rarely wears them, and how he can mistake it with a pot of coffee.

  16. Top Rooster says:

    When he puts his glasses on, does he SLAM them onto his face? seems like the only reason he would smash a mug on his head involuntarily…

    anyway, as a kid, I liked coffee more than I do NOW. I mean, I love coffee, but it has to have at least 1/3 milk added to it plus 2 spoonfuls of sugar when I drink it. When I was about three or so, I would guzzle down my Grandmother’s BLACK coffee when she was in another room.

  17. Mint Sharpie says:

    I live on tea. Tea is the elixir of life. Coffee is only for recreational purposes.

  18. DemonRex says:

    No one will EVER be as stupid as fighter. There are rocks smarter than him. πŸ˜€

  19. Radical Edward says:

    I prefer coffee made by a barista. I’m very spoiled…I also wear glasses so I don’t mistake a burly biker for an information desk worker. Also, I lose my glasses on a regular basis, so I yelled for help in finding them.

  20. Laje Kahr says:

    Amen! Coffee is nasty! I don’t get why anyone drinks the stuff. (And yes I’ve tried several kinds and versions, I have sadist friends who keep telling me “You can’t taste the coffee.” or “This coffee is the ‘good’ coffee.”)

  21. Nick says:

    I LOVE Starbuck’s hot chocolate, especially the peppermint kind.

  22. AA Shades says:

    I is am are coffee addict. And if biff is like me, some people put on their glasses (In my case, sunglasses) very quickly.

    *sight* what a waste of a perfectly good highly addictive stimulate-i MEAN PERFECTLY SAFE COFFEE

    I feel you homedog.

    I hate coffee, and I always have.

    Starbucks’ hot chocolate isn’t even good.

  25. EMC says:

    heh…see I’m an anti-corporation kinda-girl πŸ™‚ I just stand there and cover my face form on lookers whenever I’m with a group that decide to take a Star bucks run….or I just hop away to the nearest smoothie shop and order a nice Dairy-free Green Tea Smoothie.

  27. Matt says:

    Man, when Biff puts on his glasses, he PUTS ON HIS GLASSES! What’s this? Something I have to read? WHAM! Instant reading!

  28. Slice says:

    ..Tea is better xD

  29. FriskyF says:

    None stupider than fighter you say? What about Caboose from Red v Blue? πŸ˜› And i to dislike coffee, i find appels wake you up much better πŸ˜€

  31. Pom Rania says:

    Hot chocolate’s good, but I only drink it in the winter when I’m cold.

  32. trixingee says:

    coffee makes me twitchy… and not a happy twitchy

  33. PikaMario99 says:

    Has anyone else noticed that Biff has never worn glasses before or since this comic?

  34. gurgi says:

    i hate coffee, it turns people’s faces wrinkly and brown, not only that they are squintier than asian people.

  35. Couso says:

    I agree about the coffee thing, whenever I go to starbucks or any coffee place with friends I’m the only one there getting hot chocolate. Poor biff, he should switch to plain chocolate milk

  36. Crazyeyes says:

    On the plus side, coffee wakes you just as well in your eyes. Trust me. >_>

  37. butwhynot says:

    I’ve just gotten used to being an outsider. I highly recommend it.

  38. Elkian says:

    Oh hey! That’s how I got the lacerations on MY head too!

  39. Akujin says:

    I started drinking coffee when I was two. I still love it.

    I also love coffee flavored candy, and ice cream.

  40. The Jester says:

    “gave out coffee flavored candy… at halloween”

    How cruel! D8 I would never give coffee-flavored candy to children!

  41. Keturah says:

    For my money, the best Starbucks drink is their caramel apple cider. Puts their hot chocolate to shame, and is a wonderful alternative to nasty coffee

  42. femax says:

    imagine if it was a pie…

  43. dytuyurtyuyu says:

    I’m not a coke drinker, it’s too sour for me. It’s just so SOURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.

    But I loooooooooooooooooooooooove coffee!!! It’s a real treat, and it’s not bitter at all! But yeah, most people like Coke, I understand. It’s refreshening. But it’s SOURRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
    (Don’t you just loooooooooooooooooooove the way I write?!) πŸ˜‰

  44. figgyleaf says:

    Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo we doooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooont πŸ˜›

  45. Katie says:

    As a person who wears glasses (and is nearly legally blind without them) I definitely know how this feels. πŸ˜›

  46. Gwidlet says:

    If he’s blind, why does he have glasses?

  47. common comic reader says:

    i can actauly relate, although is was a clock instead of coffee…

  48. Arcan says:

    I prefer to feed my caffeine addiction with soda.
