The Hagar the Horrible cartoon features a fearless Viking who constantly raids and battles his neighbors. In this Death Cartoon strip, a foe sends him a message.
“Attila the Hun sent you a pottery gift he made himself!” the courier extending a box tied up with a black ribbon. “Well, well… maybe ol’ Attila doesn’t want me dead after all!” exclaims Hagar.
As he looks at the pottery, the messenger says, “It’s a clay cremation urn!”
Guess ol’ Attila does want him dead after all. It’s a chance to have a Viking funeral and burn ol’ Hagar on his boat. Read more about the myths associated with Viking funerals at this page.
