"A Chainus Runs Through It", Way to Die #985, is the seventh death to be featured in "Enter the Ferret", which aired on March 12, 2012.
Zeke was a tattoo/piercing fetishist who was jealous of Verona, who was the most popular tattooist in his tattoo parlor, due to the reason she had a split tongue. It caught everyone's attention, but Zeke didn't like that. A man requests Zeke to tattoo "Warrior" in Chinese on his arm and Zeke does it. Well, not really. He actually tattooed "Douchebag". Even worse, the man was in a biker gang. But Zeke thought he would never figure out. The next week Zeke showed up with a chain in his mouth, through his digestive system and out his butt. He called it the "Chainus". The girls were disgusted. Right after that the burly biker returns and is furious because he found someone who knew Chinese. He chases Zeke down the street, but then Zeke hides somewhere and loses the biker. He let out a huge sigh of relief, but then was faced with a bigger problem. He was unknowingly hiding in between the two forks of a forklift (whose driver didn't see or hear Zeke), which pulled him up by his chain which caused the chain to become taut, which caused it to slice through his intestines and esophagus and caused his body cavity to fill with blood.
"Zeke thought the Chainus would raise his career to new heights. It gave him a lift, but left him... hanging."
