'Dis Still Killed 'Em, Way to Die #452, is the seventh and last death featured in "Dying to Tell the Story", which aired on December 29, 2010.


At the height of both the Prohibition Era and the Great Depression, a poor, Appalachian couple named Jeb and Mabel decide to make money by selling moonshine. They sample the first liquid produced by their still, not realizing that it was the four-shot; people used to cheat on the booze trade, and Jeb and Mabel made the mistake of drinking one of their own concoctions. The four-shot contains pure methanol, which causes blindness and eventual organ failure.

This here's the story of Jeb and Mabel: a husband and wife with no food on the table, so they whipped up some moonshine in the back of their shed, but they didn't get rich-- just drunk, and then, dead.
