On April 16th Buford "Biff" Howard Tannen became the luckiest man alive
On April 16th Buford "Biff" Howard Tannen became the luckiest man alive. Biff was born in 1937, to Irving Thomas "Kid" Tannen and Myra Benson in Hill Valley, California. Kid and Myra got married on December 6, 1936, simply for the purpose of making it seem like Biff wasn't born out of wedlock. The two parted ways immediately after the wedding, and neither parent wanted Biff. Because of this, Tannen's mother, Gertrude Tannen, took custody of him. Before he left his son, Kid gave Gertrude a forged birth certificate, stating that it was dated for the following month, though its date is not shown.
Biff was the great-grandson of Buford "Mad Dog" Tannen. He was not very bright and only got through high school by bullying George McFly to do his homework for him. Biff often took pleasure in calling George an "Irish bug". He was feared by most of his schoolmates. The only person he was afraid of was Mr. Strickland. In 1955, he surrounded himself with a gang consisting of (Match, Skinhead, and 3-D).
By 1985, Biff's marital status is unknown, although Biff had a grandson Griff by 2015, indicating that Biff had at least one child by 1985. (According to some sources, Biff had a son, Biff Jr., who, it is suggested, owned the Cafe 80's). He may have also had a daughter named Tiff Tannen, short for Tiffany.
Biff was noted for mixed metaphors. For example, he said "make like a tree and get out of here" instead of "make like a tree and leave" on more than one occasion. He also once said "That's about as funny as a screen door on a battleship" instead of submarine.
Well all of us here at Myth or History would like to tip our hats to this great American hero. We'll done Biff... Well done.
