This Pearls Before Swine cartoon has the Grim Reaper showing up at Pig’s house. “Can I help you, Mr. Death?” asks Pig. “Yeah, Pig, your kumquat tree is dropping kumquats on my lawn. You need to go over there and pick them up.”
“I’m sorry, but I’m not going to do that,” says Pig. In the next panel he says to Rat, “I love defying death.”
Not picking up kumquats to defy death. Sure beats bungee-jumping off a bridge. I’m sure there are a bunch of folks who would pick up kumquats if they thought it would help them live longer.
