Saw that on English Russia recently. Quite neat.

Pedantry: "Pawła Kuczyńskiego" is the genitive/possessive form. The nominative is "Paweł Kuczyński."

These are great, thanks for pointing them out. Can anyone explain this one to me? Bad news in the mail, giving him no way out (as signified by the [bad luck] black cat), impending hanging/car accident?

who knows how many animals are beiing killed everyday on the highways! I guess that is his message.

No, I think I've worked it out. He's committing suicide, that's a suicide note he's holding. He's employing several methods to make sure he dies - a black cat, the noose, and being in the path of the oncoming car.

Reminds me of the bleak humour of Perry Bible Fellowship.
