Happy Reaper

Makeover for the Grim Reaper

The grim reaper really scares people because he is so grim. This can't be good for anyone. No one should have to put up with this type of existence for so long, so I propose a make-over. Gone would be that hooded cowl and rusting scythe and in its place would be a sporty suit, much like the Armani one that Gerry Adams wears as he folics the peacelines of Belfast scattering discarded munitions to the happy folk dancing merrily in his wake. The scythe could become something a little more appropriate as well - I mean most crops are harvested these days by mechanical means, so I'm suggesting a brightly painted strimmer. He could also have a pet - a happy, non-gene spliced, barking zebra rat that only lives in his world and is therefore immune from deletion.

       Hooded cowls never go out of fashion, and he only seems to have a rusty scythe depending on where you hear it. If you think about it, he has eternity to do nothing but his job, you'd think he might take a little pride in it and maintain the equipment.
Also, the strimmer takes away the personal touch - we don't want Death getting all corporate on us now do we?

       Pimp my Reaper?

(OK I'm done). What makes you so sure that he doesn't enjoy being Grim?

       Why not have a cute little bunny rabbit with a cute little blaster. He goes around forcing people into the after life or else!
