Death's got a bit of a paunch.

Mister Earl said...

Why is every blog about death the last few days?

Katie said...

Is this one of those new anti-smoking cigarette packs?

Pasadena Adjacent said...

Watchtower has taken a decidedly hardline approach

Bellis said...

Geez, now he leaves a calling card?

Susan Campisi said...

I noticed the same thing as Mister Earl: Dena bloggers do death.

Clifford Beshers said...

Bellis, Death's gotta advertise, just like everyone else...

Pascal Jim said...

Was this Advertisement found at the HA HA Soccer Field Site.?...

And if you step on that crack it will break your mother's back.

Dianne Emley said...

So, have a nice day! :-)

Margaret said...

I think you've been hanging out with AH. Also, I do think we live in a death-denying culture, and that is probably not healthy. But I guess what doesn't kill you...

I draw the line right next to death.

Better luck next time death!

Vanda said...

The Church of Obvious strikes again.

Ms M said...

Life insurance ad?? Estate planning ad?? Is there a photo of your friendly neighborhood agent / estate planner on the back?

Nathalie said...

This is where I draw the line.

Jilly said...

So right.Just turn on the news each day!

The card is menacing and controlling and I don't like it!

Petrea said...

Where are my manners? I fell asleep early last night--signed off before signing off! (Death took a holiday.)

This was the photo I had ready to go, and I posted it after seeing Hiker's post, not thinking about the "theme." Thanks for making it funny and refusing to allow it to be a downer! When I saw it I thought, "Zen Monday."

To be truly Zen, embrace it.
A Buddhist monk (I know the name, but can't spell it) was asked what would he do if he was told he had 15 minutes to live?
His answer: "Meditate"
