#120 – Duplicitous

I remember being pretty young when I first heard about a kid with a peanut allergy. He wasn’t a kid anyone had met but we all heard some version of the story. The one I knew was that one day on the school bus a kid ate a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Tiny particles of the peanut butter floated through the air to the back of the bus where the kid was sitting by himself. Nobody noticed anything was wrong until the bus got to school and the kid never got out. The bus driver thought he fell asleep but when he tried to wake him the horrible truth was discovered. This story was of course told while riding in the very same bus where the kid died… and I was sitting in his exact seat!

Today’s Biff keeps it in the air.

    Did she really think she’d get away with that?

    This reaches the highest level of disturbing. 😛

    EVUL! I can’t decide if this belongs more on Channelate, The Bad Chemicals or Sad Children .-D

    I think some of you have misunderstood the comic vs. the story – in the story, the kid dies because some other kid on the bus ate a PBJ.

    Some folks have peanut allergies so severe that even being near peanuts causes harm. That said, it does sound a bit far fetched….

    The comic Mommy must have seriously needed the kid’s room for something to be cleaning it out BEFORE she was even notified her plan had worked.
    Oh, and I think this goes WAY PASS disturbing and “evul” and into something so wrong that I only wonder why we haven’t read/heard about it or something like it in the papers or on the news. Life does imitate art these days.

    There was actually a Law & Order episode about a mother killing her adopted daughter through an allergy that only she knew about, making it look like an accident. Oddly, I didn’t laugh during that episode nearly as much as I did at this comic! It’s all about timing, I guess.

      Law & Order rarely gets their murder jokes right. So clumsy.

    All I have to say is: that kid got veeery lucky. (Comic kid not story kid).
