    Bitten past tense of bite. “Bit” is the colloquial monstrosity of it. Just a pet peeve of mine. Sorry to take it out on you.

    Otherwise the Phil Collins radioactive bite joke is so bad it is actually funny. Like “Plan 9 From Outer Space” had reached such a low level it is actually entertaining.

    “Percival Dunwoody” is my favorite stupid time traveler.

    Without Darthfield the comic is Null and Void.

    For the benefit of any non-nerds in the audience: The quantum mechanic doesn’t know where the car is because he just weighed it. According to Heisenberg, we can know the mass of a particle or its location, but not both.

    “Bitten past tense of bite”

    Nobody but me will likely ever see this, but the past tense of the verb “to bite” is “bit,.” as in “My dog bit me yesterday.”
    “Bitten” is the participial form of the verb “to bite.” Present participle form is “has bitten,” “My dog has bitten me every day for as long as I can remember.” Past participle: “My dog had bitten me daily even before his traumatic brain injury.”#poorme

    Oh, just noticed that the form in the strip was was bitten. In this case, of course, we’re still dealing with the present participle (maybe), but “was bitten” indicates the passive voice, rather than the active voice. So I guess that after all that thrashing about, I have to admit that “was bitten” is the past tense of “to bite,” but only in the passive voice. Have wasted too much time on this and don’t have time to research more. Hey, I haven’t taught English for about forty-eight years! (Guess it’s good that nobody but me will see this.)
