It’s been a while since I posted on some Death Cartoons – here are a few recent gems.
In Pickles, grandson Nelson says to Grandpa, “I’ll miss you when you’re gone, Grandpa.” Grandpa thinks about this for a frame and says, “Where am I going?” (I heard this a lot at Christian funerals reading from the book of John.) Grandma says, “I don’t know, but I hope you clean up this mess before you go.” We all need to clean up our messes before we go.
In F Minus, there’s a guy blowing up a beach ball while sitting in a pew. His neighbor says, “No, in fact I don’t think anything goes over well with the funeral crowd.” The moral of the story: don’t try to be entertaining at a funeral. Folks aren’t there for fun.
And lastly, we have a Close to Home cartoon with The Grim Reaper on a couch in a psychiatrist’s office. The doctor is saying, “I think we all have a fear of death. It’s just that in your case, you’re afraid of, well, YOU. Hmm, interesting.”
Whether you fear death or not, consider coming to the first Death Café event in Albuquerque on September 30, 2012, from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Discuss mortality over tea and cakes! See the Death Café link at AGoodGoodbye.com for more information.
