ELEVATOR

The coffin doesn’t fit
In the elevator
Let’s keep it vertical


The body will
Be standing


Isn’t a coffin always
Too heavy? Shall we put  
This one on wheels?


A coffin pusher
Wanted


An elevator
Down
In a high-rise

ELEVATOR

Close

ELEVATOR

The coffin doesn’t fit
In the elevator
Let’s keep it vertical


The body will
Be standing


Isn’t a coffin always
Too heavy? Shall we put  
This one on wheels?


A coffin pusher
Wanted


An elevator
Down
In a high-rise

ELEVATOR

The coffin doesn’t fit
In the elevator
Let’s keep it vertical


The body will
Be standing


Isn’t a coffin always
Too heavy? Shall we put  
This one on wheels?


A coffin pusher
Wanted


An elevator
Down
In a high-rise
