The worst part is they made him slice his own grave.
Hey, we just realized based on the dates on the tombstone that the reason he's dead is because he's turning 40. Then we realized half our office was already dead. Turns out everyone over 40 is just a really solid ghost walking around and resenting young people for having fun. Things actually make a lot more sense now, like why every Scooby Doo episode reveals that the ghost is actually an old person trying to stop young people from experiencing the pleasure they can no longer have.
