The Pearls Before Swine cartoon is featuring the untimely demise of Larry the crocodile, apparently killed by sneaky dolphins. The unfolding story shows a number of issues that come up with death and funerals – with a comedic twist.
Larry’s friends make a very strange community in mourning. However, this series illustrates all of the activity that goes into funeral planning. And we never know when that party will need to be planned. Get your information pulled together and talk to your loved ones!
So Larry the croc isn’t really dead. Yet, we saw that his wife put a memorial service together, friends came to visit (and steal Larry’s stuff), the son was grieving (then confused), and Larry put in an appearance at his “good goodbye” party. Love his short speech: “Hi. Me dead. Give me back food or me haunt you forever.” How eloquent.
