Today’s Non Sequitur cartoon is following the heart attack adventures of Bob, brother of Joe Pyle. Bob regularly overindulged on artery-clogging foods and was carrying around a lot of excess weight. Bob’s now in a hospital bed, after having a blocked artery cleared, and gets the news from his brother.
Bob: “A heart attack?! Yeesh… where’d THAT come from?”
Joe: “A blocked artery, actually.”
Bob: “Sigh – I better work on putting my affairs in order…”
Joe: “Oh, lots of time for that, Bob. You just need to rest… can I get you anything?”
Bob: “I’m DYIN’ for a cheeseburger right now.”
Joe: Let’s work on your epitaph later, ok?”
I think “I’m dying for a cheeseburger” would make a great epitaph for a fast food fan. Mine, if they can fit it on the marker, will be, “Talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals won’t make you dead.”
So, what do you want on your tombstone?
