This Pickles cartoon has Earl pondering the afterlife, and the fact that you can’t take any worldly possessions with you wherever you go after you die. He’s especially concerned he’ll be leaving his clothing behind.
“I don’t like the idea of showing up in the afterlife in the buff,” says Earl. His friend replies, “I doubt the afterlife is looking forward to that either.”
