Sherman the great white shark is continuing his bucket list adventures that began January 5th. See the previous cartoons.
January 10: His wife Megan’s bucket list includes scrapbooking. “Are we on fire when we do it?” asks Sherman.
January 12: Megan tells Sherman, “Your bucket list is going to kill you.”
January 13: Sherman wants to do something complicated, expensive and dangerous – maybe it should be the last thing on the list… or just lie and say you did it.
January 14: Sherman asks the Great Kahuna if he can send him to visit the Great Wall of China. Kahuna’s got a better idea.
January 15: Sherman gets serious about bungee jumping. His friend Ernest wants to film the adventure.
January 16: The bungee jump goes horribly wrong. This being a cartoon, no one actually dies.
January 17: Back home, a little beaten up, Megan suggests Sherman stick to grocery lists instead of bucket lists.
By the way, do you know where the term “bucket list” comes from? It refers to “kicking the bucket,” which was one way people bent on committing suicide could effectively hang themselves. The person would stand on an upside-down bucket with a noose around the neck, kick the bucket out from underneath, and quickly drop into strangulation. Not a nice thought picture.
