Don’t you just love the Pearls Before Swine comic strip? I purchased the rights to use one classic Pearls cartoon on the cover of A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don’t Plan to Die. This is where the subtitle comes from.
Today’s Pearls cartoon is another good one.
Pig and Goat are talking. Goat says, “Did you hear that the Grim Reaper Guy is moving back into the house next door to you? I guess he and Mrs. Death were separated for a while.”
Pig says, “Yeah. I sure missed Mr. Death. I’m even making a sign on behalf of the neighborhood welcoming him back.” In the next panel, you see the sign says “This town welcomes Death” (with little smiley faces on either side).
Goat says, “Maybe we could re-word that.” Pig says, “How ’bout this?” while holding up another sign that says, “Eagerly awaiting Death.”
Perhaps this is the start of a great series! Stay tuned…
