And to think Marie was voted "Least Likely to Convince a Man to Take His Clothes Off" in high school.

I can't take credit for the joke, I purloined that one from "The Abraham Lincoln Joke Book," which credits the joke to a comedian in Lincoln's time named Artemus Ward.

Inhumation by Carl Schulz

(the beginning of the above strip can be found here)

I figured I'd follow on yesterday's trend of sharing comics I find terribly cute and often more touching than you would expect them to be. Inhumation is a slice-of-life story taking place in the afterlife, so I guess it's kind of slice-of-death. Either way, the comic blends the mundane nature of the genre with the running undercurrent of the underworld propelling it along, with worldbuilding that is interesting without being overwhelming (especially for fuddy-duddies like myself who prefer stories to stay pretty much within the feasible realm). The comedy of the strip, like Lunarbaboon, is typically lighthearted and cheerful- not every page has a knee-slapping punchline but nevertheless they are sure to evoke a smile. Schulz is quite capable of writing scenes that are a little more poignant as well, which gives the story a pleasant depth. The characters are all delightfully unique and enjoyable and Schulz continues to grow artistically and experiment with styles. Now is a great time to jump into the story as THERE IS POTENTIAL ROMANCE coming down the pipeline, not to mention the fact that the story itself is pretty well-established so it's just a convenient time to start following along. If you're looking for an afterlife story that isn't all grimbones and gothic poems scrawled in a marble notebook with red pen in math class, Inhumation is sure to please.

Ahahaha I expected something more dirty but let's just say that joke grew old faster than Marie's grandfather! XD I keep chuckling when I see Joseph's reaction.

I really like the first panel - the composition and Joseph's expression and movement and everything!

@Oly-RRR: Thanks!! I think that's my favorite panel on the page :D

And I was going to have her go with something more risque but then I remembered that there's a lot of children in the audience and as much as she's making things difficult for Joseph to some extent, I don't think she'd make things THAT difficult.
