Today’s comics have a wealth of references to cemeteries, heaven, and living and dying.
In Non Sequitur, a couple reclines on lounge chairs among the headstones in a cemetery, and the guy says, “I’ve never felt so alive!”
Over in Close to Home, two people in a line filing through the gates of heaven are chatting. One says, “As it turned out, I was in the group that received the placebo the whole time.” Nothing like being on the wrong side of the study group. There was also a cartoon about performance reviews in Hell a few days ago. The Devil is sitting at a desk with a ragged-looking guy, and the Devil says, “You’ve been doing well with screaming and writhing in pain, but we’d like to see more utter hopelessness from you.”
And Lio is visiting the cemetery, when a hand comes up from a grave and hands him a dollar bill. The last frame shows him going to buy a lottery ticket. This reminds me of the Close To Home a few days ago with the seance trying to get the lottery numbers off the ticket in the pants of a recently deceased loved one.
