The Story

Money isn’t of any worry at all in the Town of Afterlife. As you’ve probably heard in that old saying about taking it with you, all your loot is left behind when one passes into The After from The Before, and probably thankfully so. If skeletons needed heat, which they don’t, they would probably burn money because it’s worthless in the Town of Afterlife. Even with all the eternal time available, there’s no time left for wealth concerns after passing from one realm to the next—nor much worry of any measure at all.

As for financial advisors, bankers, and even psychiatrists, you’re out of luck and out of work if you move to Afterlife. There are no banks in the Town of Afterlife, not even a vending machine, and no one cares if you’re nuts.

Somehow, this skeleton burying money has found a way to bring his stash of cold cash along from The Before. He’ll be in for a surprise when it suddenly vanishes into thin air!

Among other unusual happenings in Afterlife, a situation called The Vanishing is one of the more peculiar things. Money and wealth cease to exist there by simply fading away in short order! Stocks, bonds, greenbacks, gold, property, status…poof, it’s gone! As an additional part of The Vanishing, every new skeleton spook arriving in Afterlife soon forgets about money and wealth in the way squirrels forget where they’ve buried their nuts.

In this picture, a newly arrived skeleton burying money is trying to start a new savings account in the First National Underground Bank of Dirt. Of course, you can’t keep it even if you do find a way to get it to Afterlife. This might be the last he sees of his little hoard of loot and he’ll forget about it soon enough. In Afterlife, there are no worries with a bank balance of zero and that’s the way the skeleton spooks living there seem to like it.
