Today’s Lio cartoon features little Lio pulling his wagon labeled “Lio’s Taxi Service.” The Grim Reaper is a passenger in the wagon. They’re headed along the road, directed by a sign that says “Philip Morris Research and Development.” Death and taxis – gotta love it!
And in yesterday’s Lola cartoon, she’s sitting on a park bench and sees the Grim Reaper walking down the sidewalk. The Reaper’s black robe is inordinately short, showing bony arms and legs. Lola says, “So, is this your summer look… or a dry-cleaning mishap?”
While the GR has made a number of appearances in the Lio cartoon, I think this is the first time Lola has featured him.
