Way to Die #213: Ass-Hoppered, is the fifth death featured in "Death, The New Black", which aired on July 11, 2011.


On April 20, 2010, in Humboldt County, CA. Two men named Darryl and Eugene in rural California attempt to grow marijuana for money, but end up smoking their stash. The two get "the munchies," but having no food, Eugene decides to eat a grasshopper. Unknowingly allergic to a protein in the bug's exoskeleton, he goes into an anaphylactic shock and dies when his throat swells shut, which creates asphyxiation.

"Darryl and Eugene tried to get in on the green revolution by growing some killer weed. But then Eugene got the munchies, ate some crunchies, and wound up in the compost heap called... death."
