The Grim Reaper Wears a Man Dress -- Franklin?

     Jeff, who is the music teacher at our school, comes to my eighth grade homeroom during first period everyday and teaches the Bible class.  As the students were preparing for a test, they kept forgetting the answer to the question, "What do we gain from Christ's resurrection?"  The answer:  victory over death.  Jeff asked me to draw the grim reaper on the board.  I am not a great artist (obviously).  After I wrote the word, "victory" over the grim reaper (get it, victory OVER death), I couldn't resist writing "man dress" on the grim reaper's, well, man dress.  ("What's the longest kinda jacket that you have . . .  that's more like, kinda, a man dress?")  
      Every single one of the students got the answer correct on their tests, and several of them drew their own versions of the grim reaper on their tests, with the word "victory" written over him, wearing his man dress.  Their art was better than mine, though.  Maybe it is because Jeff is also their art teacher.
