Today’s Non Sequitur cartoon features two guys stranded on a tiny desert island. They’ve built a signal fire as a call for rescue. The Grim Reaper is on a small boat moving toward them by poling with his scythe.
One guy says to the other, who is looking the other way, “Well, the good news is, our signal fire seems to have worked…”
Why do we so often see the Grim Reaper on the beach, as in Ingmar Bergman’s film “The Seventh Seal”? BTW, I’ll soon be posting my spoof on this famous scene that you can find in the August 20 post. You may also enjoy “The Seventh Skol” an animated parody of this same scene, posted August 23.
