"Bucky Boned", Way to Die #397, is the second death to be featured in "Tweets from the Dead", which aired on March 26, 2012.


A spoiled stockbroker named Lenny had been bilking millions of dollars from investors through an illicit Ponzi scheme. Everyone would say that he was a regular Bernard Madoff, but his greedy behavior was going to catch up to him; following the stock market crash, he receives word that his office is about to be raided by the FBI, so he and his secretary, Patricia, tried frantically to destroy all the evidence. However, something gets to Lenny before the federal agents, because he suffers a horrible stomachache, crying Mommy and Daddy which lead to his death and leading to a horrified look on Patricia's face. How'd that happen? What caused Lenny's death was his bucky ball stress toy; he had slammed it on his desk and some of the neodymium magnets landed in his tapioca bubble tea. While drinking the tea, he swallowed the magnets, which then caused them to attract to each other, tearing through his small intestines, causing him to die of internal bleeding.

"Lenny swallowed a bucky, things got really sucky, and now Lenny's a dead ducky."


  • The supposedly-dead Lenny can be seen blinking after Patrica discovered his corpse.


  • Also called "Ponzi-Reamed" on the Spike TV website.
