Way to Die #830: Ass-Plosion, is the fifth death featured in "Death, The Final Frontier", which aired on July 15, 2012, as part of the series finale.


A Scottish bodybuilder named Angus plays dirty against his oppponents in a "Strongest Man" competition. When he lifts up a large rock, the pressure caused by his body expels his weak anal sphincter and intestines out through his rectum and as a result, he dies from a massive heart attack caused by the shock of seeing his own organs.

There's an expression in sports: no guts, no glory. Angus dropped his guts, missed out on the glory, and finished the competition...dead last!
