Stab at humor fails miserably, 14 January 2010
Author: drystyx from United States

This story tries to work as a "black comedy" cartoon short, but it is too long for the feeble joke it tells.

An old greedy man is saved by a character who looks like a religious figure, who tries to help him save his soul. The old greedy man is shown some contraption for getting to Heaven. To say more would be to ruin what was probably intended as a "Monty Python" surprise ending, but in fact is just not that unpredictable, and not a bit amusing.

A third character enters in the climax, the Grim Reaper, on a motorcycle. There isn't anything funny about a grim reaper on a motorcycle, and it doesn't either make sense, nor make a contrast. It looks more like the writer is just advertising motorcycle sales for himself or someone close. Way too obvious.

Monty Python could pull this off, but this was a feeble effort, and a total failure.
