Unbearable recommendation

Every time I pull the bucket up from the well of inspiration it's bone dry. Not a drop in it! Until that resolves itself, have a look at The Last Mortician, by writer Tim Hall and Emmy-winning cartoonist Dean Haspiel. Set the creepy meter to 11.

Possibly a transatlantic lost in translation moment. Is the culmination of the cartoon "buggy whoips"? Is this the point of it. Don't get me wrong, I'm trying to understand.

I'm just guessing here but "buggy whips" are often used as a metaphor in this country meaning an item that was once mass produced but now no longer exists and is, therefore, useless. Morticians became as obsolete as buggy whips.

I reckon.

I misread that as Last Of The Mohicans. Sorry.

LX: I can assure you that this will take much less time to read than Last Of The Mohicans would, which is to its advantage.

looby, the comic runs for 16 pages; there are some controls at the top of the image or you can click on the image itself to move to the next frame. Some people have also had trouble seeing the images, so I put a workaround in the comments at the Tor site. Thanks for the mention, UB, and hope y'all enjoy it.

I can only echo the person who said - now who was it?
'I don't wish to know that.'
Too near the knuckle!
The photograph is great.
BTW I didn't know there were hot meds?

Oh that is creepy. Nearly as creepy as the results from too much botox.

Many thanks for the link.
