In this Close To Home cartoon, a camper is playing dead to throw off a bear that’s sniffing around. He’s well prepared – he’s stretched out in an open casket. Why he feels compelled to have a viewing might lead to his actual demise.
The caption reads, “As a veteran camper, Randy knew it was critical to play dead if he should encounter a bear.” I’ll bet some caskets could provide good protection against a bear attack. Think of those steel waterproof caskets, even though they may not have been tested as “bear-proof.”
