Comic #639

1 Head Death: {on the phone} I DON'T CARE IF HE'S OVER 110 MILLION YEARS OLD. IF HE HASN'T DIED OF OLD AGE YET, THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO.
2 President: {in the Oval Office, also on the phone} Bad move. You'll regret crossing the President of the United States.
3 [newspaper]: PRESIDENT DECLARES DEATH UNAMERICAN
4 [newspaper]: WASHINGTON - In a surprising move, President Bush has denounced Death. "I urge all right-thinking Americans to avoid dying," he said in a speech today.
4 [newspaper]: "This is an organisation that waits like vultures for decent American citizens to die, and then drags their souls off, against their wills, to an ill-defined afterlife inconsistent with good old American apple-pie Christian values. This is clearly a terrorist organisation. We must be vigilant, and refuse to give in to Death! And ask yourself, does the Allosaurus have a policy on Death? I don't think so!"
4 [newspaper]: {caption of a fuzzy black and white photo showing a skeleton} Purported leader of the terrorist group known as "Death".

I had fun making the photo of the Head Death noisy and fuzzy like all those photos of terrorist leaders we see on TV these days.


2013-11-13 Rerun commentary: This was a rare occasion, with two successive strips (today's and yesterday's) in the same theme and storyline. I had to squeeze them in because the real world US election that this was leading up to was only a few days away when these comics were originally published.

Even though the newspaper fragment is reporting a US story, I used Australian spelling for "organisation". Presumably this is the story as published in a non-US newspaper.
