"A Turn For The Purse", Way to Die #297, is the second death to be featured in "Gratefully Dead", which aired on January 13, 2010.


Sylvia, a stripper living in a suburban town has her purse stolen by a jeans-and-shoes-and-sweater-jacket mugger named Mikey (Chris McLaughlin) on a bicycle, who threatens her with a screwdriver. A suit-and-tie-and-shoes-and-pants neighbor named Doug (Rollin Perry) witnesses the robbery and chases after Mikey. Mikey speeds away from an aggrivated Doug, but hits his bike on a rock and flies onto a lawn, where he pierces his heart with the screwdriver he was holding, killing him instantly. Sylvia then goes past Doug and takes her purse back and calmly walks away, and Mikey dies.

"Mikey learned the hard way. Snatching a purse from an ex-stripper is risky business. You just might get... screwed."
