"In the distance … we noticed a figure emerge from the thick fog," Jeanne Mclauchlan, who saw the man on the lake last weekend, told the Canberra Times. “It was a figure of a man dressed in a tuxedo and top hat on a stand-up-paddle (SUP) coffin, complete with flowers, paddling toward us.”

When meeting Baron Samedi, by accident (i.e. You don't actually want to ask of him a favour) It is customary to offer him a gift. Any of the following will do:cigars, rum, black coffee, grilled peanuts, or bread.

Better still, ask him. He maybe the the custodian of death but is also something of a party engine of considerable horsepower. At the very least tip your hat.

and I quote:
-----------------------
According to Mashable, there are rumors swirling that the mystery man is one Tom Simmat, a human and kayaker from Sydney. Simmat has reportedly been seen riding on a coffin-SUP.

However, when Mashable attempted to contact Simmat, the news outlet says they received a creepy e-mail from someone identifying himself as “The Lost Undertaker.”

Unlike Superman, Robin Hood, Zorro, Spiderman, Batman and Wonderwoman, who all revealed their identity to the detriment of their purpose; The Lost Undertaker wishes to hide his true identity. His purpose is to give hope to the oppressed and put the fear of God into the oppressors, villains and rogues that surround us all.
-----------------------

Just give him a tot of gin and send him on his way. Eccentricity should be surfed, like a tide. If you dive into it, it tends to roll you around whilst your trying to make foolish sense of it all.

I thought it was "Jim."

In any case, upon meeting him, never ask him about your destiny.  It's understood what his answer will be.
