The Charity Collector Guy has been a bit neglected lately. He last appeared in #704, although his last appearance in his regular theme was #689.

I'm not sure exactly what sort of guaranteed work levels the Plagues had back in medieval times, but I'm thinking it must have been pretty high.

2014-08-15 Rerun commentary: I don't really know who the Head Death is talking to here. We see him on the phone to what must presumably be staff of some sort a few times. I never bothered to figure out the details of how the Death organisation was staffed at the lower levels.

Presumably they must have record keepers, and a mail room, and cleaners, and an elderly lady who brings around a trolley laden with tea and biscuits every afternoon. The alternative is too gruesome to imagine.
