Title: For butter or for worse
Date: September 14, 2004
Summary: Steve finds some rather expired butter in the fridge.
"Fin" style: Regular box.
Number of panels: 8
Steve: (looking into the fridge) "I think the butter's off."
Beaver: "What makes you say that Steve?"
Steve holds the butter that has evolved into a lifeform, on a plate. It makes a "UGGL.." onomatopoeia.
Beaver POKE!'s the butter.
Butter: "Ai! Cut that out!"
Beaver: "Oh, hey, it can talk."
Butter: "Yes, I have learned much since I came to be in the cold belly of the dairy drawer, but I yearn for adventure, I dream of passing beyond the great portal and experiencing all the delights that the world beyond has to offer, I will..."
Steve STAB!'s the butter with a knife.
Butter: "AKKH! I return to you Mother Fridge... ...into... ...the light... *ug*"
Steve SPREAD!'s the butter on a slice of bread.
Beaver: "There's probably a moral to this."
Steve eats the bread with a CHOMF.
Steve spits out the butter with a BLEH!
Spread butter: "Forgive me!"
Beaver: "Maybe the moral is 'Clean out the fridge more often'"
- This is the first BnS comic that comes with a moral to the story.
Well, sort of.
- The butter coming to life may be a reference (or parody, more like it) to the commonly used gag of filth coming to life in webcomic culture. Examples are Fred the Slime mold from General Protection Fault, and Dust Puppy from User Friendly.
