Chapter: English Literature During The Middle Ages
In my head, I've subtitled the next series of strips as "Death Takes A Holiday."
The Pardoner's Tale is tough to riff on, because so much of it is just generic sermons with no characters to poke fun at. And while mocking the Bible is great fun, there just wasn't much in the Tale to work with. Still, there's a few chunks of lines with a short story about Death that are pretty good fun, so on we roll.
