Stay Away, Grim Reaper


Well, that's an enlightened view 
of the Grim Reaper, isn't it? 

But in truth, we are very afraid of him. 

Because he's coming for all of us
even though we don't want to think about it.


The Grim Reaper is often, 
for good reason, 
associated with War.



We try to deny our deep fears 
by making jokes and poking fun 
at the Grim Reaper.







But we've seen altogether too much 
of him in the last couple of years.



So let's all cheat 
the Grim Reaper 
a little longer!

I didn’t see THAT ending coming. I’m now back to looking at Mr. Quincy Fluffins. Crocs would be a good idea on the Grim Reaper’s bony feet.

Mistress Maddie said...

The grim reaper has a lot of work the US currently.

Hahaha
OMG fantastic. The one of shenanigans and fuckery up ahead? Yes. Or the one with Mr. Quincy Fluffings and the boom boom! The crocs? I'm dying here.

XOXO

Rommy said...

Dang, he deserved Employee of the Year for two years running. He ought to take it up with management and see if he gets a bonus. :D

Val Ewing said...

The last two? Priceless!

pam nash said...

Having someone escort you to the next thing wouldn't be so bad. Better image though if he'd leave the scythe at home.

Lady M said...

Very funny throughout but ending with a timely message. To bad the drooling Trump cult of personality isn't reading your blog.

Tasker Dunham said...

Just one more episode ... and one more blog post.

e said...

Might as well laugh, mortals. The end cometh!
But, who says it can't be funny, amiright?

Mike said...

One more episode? The grim reaper may die first.

This N That said...

Loved the ending..I don't know why but I had a weird feeling in the pit of my stomach while reading this..Very strange..

Yvonne said...

I do love buttercup. Funny in a grim sort of way.

What a clever Public Service Announcement. Love it.
That pale horse and cat named Death? As precious as it gets.
Happy Halloween, 4 days away.

Tundra Bunny said...

AHAHAHAHAHA! Great post today, Debra. After the last couple of years, the poor bastard probably does need a hug and a vacation on a flamingo floatie!

Boud said...

That one more chapter, one more row, one more cookie..

Karen thisoldhouse2.com said...

LOL... these are brilliant!

Adam said...

I got the Moderna vaccine to keep that fucker away

Cynthia said...

For sooth, knowest thou how to say "scythe"? (I don't.)

Polly said...

Love Buttercup and the kitten :-)

LL Cool Joe said...

Glad you threw in a cute kitten on a unicorn.

Magaly Guerrero said...

Hey! Crocs can be ridiculously intimidating.

And I agree, let's get vaccinated and make good old skully have to wait another day.

Sue Bursztynski said...

I’d be comforted to know that Terry Pratchett’s Death was coming for me when it’s my time… but these are some very funny versions! I especially like the kitten and the Pale Horse! Not called Binky, I assume?

peppylady (Dora) said...

Maybe the grim reaper wishes more people would get the vaccine. Possible does he/she need less of work load.
Coffee is on and stay safe

Rain said...

Hee hee hee giggle giggle giggle Death wearing Crocs!!!!!!!!!

CraveCute said...

Thanks for this grim reminder! LOL, Debra you always make me smile! Have a very special Halloween! Diane and Guy Noir

Guillaume said...

All very funny. I love the Grim Reaper. Well, as an icon. And my favourite is l'Ankou, the Breton version.

Miss Val's Creations said...

Oh that Grim Reaper! I love the hoax jokes! The Grim Reaper has been busy lately.

Kirk said...

Now I know where QAnon came from.

Busy Bee Suz said...

Oh my, these were too funny. Especially the Wurst one. :)

Fundy Blue said...

Blogger keeps eating my comment. These grim reaper funnies are wonderful! "Wurst" was a great groaner of a pun. And "...Just one more episode is funny and terrifying. Loved the "Employee of the Month" ending and the vaccine message. Colorado is a hot spot right now. I don't understand people! Take care, Debra!

Ur-spo said...

Drat! I could not find find the Terry Pratchett quote about a man asking Death what makes life meangiful. Death replies cats are pretty good for that.

The Blog Fodder said...

The pale horse and the employee of the month were my top picks. Love your blog.
