Gorgeous elephant!

My mind made some very rapid connections.

I have grieved the loss of my parents by listening to - 'Bedankt Lieve Ouders' (Thank you, dear parents).  Sung by Vader Abraham (Father Abraham, pop singer), who wrote & sang the Smurf song.

So now I've got this wretched image of the Angel of Death with Smurfs/Schtroumpfs turning up at Midnight Mass at Christmas 'Thanks, Dear Parents' he sings as he carries out his anual duty of fortelling the coming year's deaths.

Just to cheer you up:-

If Monsters Don't Exist, Why Are They Out To Get Me?


L’Ankou is described as an old man (sometimes a skeleton) in a black robe, hat that covers his face, carrying a scythe, drives a cart for collecting the souls of the dead, and travels with two spectral companions to help load the souls onboard.  Pretty standard fare for personifications of death.  Strangely, Breton mythology maintains that the L’Ankou is a temp job, and that there is an assigned L’Ankou for every parish.  If you have the misfortune to be the last man to die for the year in a Celtic parish, you are stuck with the job of L’Ankou for the next year, after which Death will sign your time card and you can move on.

Eeek!  Remind me to take care not to be the last in my parish that dies this year!
