#661 – Conditioned

Secret Santa can be fun but if you are doing it in a large group of people you are likely to get someone that you don’t know very well. I think the people that organize these events are the ones that get the most enjoyment out of them. I had a box in my attic that was gradually filled with items from various workplace gift exchanges. I eventually put them all up on ebay and then went on an art supply buying spree.

    Hey the chair is back!
    Our office is having a kind of secret santa too. A very very low-budget secret santa.

    It’s for the eyebrows Biff!

  3. Speakerblast says:

    oh yeah, and recieving packages/gifts week

  4. SEA says:

    Lifetime supply of eyebrow shampoo XD

  5. Morzikei says:

    I think that shampoo would spoil before Biff could use it up… There is also the case that Biff might cut his eyebrows again

    I was in a small newspaper class in school and I was into Pokemon (back when Pokemon was still obscure) and I wrote that on the note for my secret Santa…I got jipped. Stupid Psyduck keychain that probably cost like $2.

    What are all those levers in the chair for?!

  8. Phil says:

    WOW look at all those knobs on that office chair. It must have been expensive :).

  9. MaskedMan says:

    Heh! I have the same chair.

    “Unexpected/undesireable contents” week..?

  10. Cudzu says:

    What are a few of the more interesting things you’ve got?

  11. Manatee says:

    All I want for christmas is a chair with enough more leavers then a 747!!

    (sniffs) I have chair envy

  12. Red says:

    I’m thinking it’s “bad comings of something to do with a group” week. Can’t make it short and catchy because I suck at that sort of thing. ^^;

    There’s the frozen goldfish from the goldfish of the month club, and unsuitable presents from his office’s secret santa.

    My chair at work feels like one of those myriad-lever types some days.

  14. hyperdelirium says:

    The chair has RETURNED! I wish my chair was like that, actually, one knob doesn’t afford much variation…
    I think it’s “Bad Group Prizes” or something… And does shampoo even spoil, Morzikei?! 0_o I’ve stored some shampoo under my sink for a year or so, and then I used it and it worked fine. *shrugs*

    I remember that chair! Best comics know when to repeat themselves. This one proves it!

  16. Twilightfairy says:

    Biff can use the shampoo on his eyebrows.

    But yeah i got when it comes to secret santa some times the best gifts are gift cards. or money.

  17. Micah says:

    Christmas/December week.

  18. Eltharrion says:

    Okey, first time writing here (yay, finished reading all the old biff).

    Normally I don’t open my mouth to comic writers, but you, chris, are quite an exception. Never before I’ve found one-picture comics with no actual continuum story so funny and great. Hopefully you don’t get hit by piano.

  19. teh n00b says:

    a piano?

    after 3 days, i have finally finished reading all of your comics. you have gotten much better than drawing over the years! keep up the good work!

  20. Kit-Kun says:

    I had to go back through the comic t ofind the chair everyone is talking about. XD Secret Santa can be alright. I remember once in fourth grade I think it was. I don’t remember what I got or bought, but I do remember that as the only time I did it.

  21. Eltharrion says:

    Yeah, a piano…

    …Sorry, my way of saying “hopefully nothing bad ever happens to you in your immidiate future”. It’s just much shorter just say “don’t get hit by a piano”.

    Don’t worry, you’re not the first one to be confused about that one.

  22. teh n00b says:

    and we won’t be the last!

  23. MadDavid says:

    Actually, this chair is no where near as complicated as his previous one (# 181).

  24. £cake says:

    Actually it is. It’s just half of the levers fell off because they were made of cheap, low-quality plastic assembled in China.

    I personally enjoy secret santas/white elephant gift exchanges.

  25. Kurast says:

    It’s bad when you have Secret Santas everywhere and forget what you got for who, where…

  26. Night Mare says:

    I really like his chair!

  27. Rampage says:

    That’s a lot of pushy/pully/lifty thingies on his chair there.

  28. jmkool says:

    Yeah, that chair’s been around a while. I wonder if he ever got all the way through the owner’s manual?
