"Bush Whacked", Way to Die #345, is the seventh and final death featured in "Young, Dumb, and Full of Death", which aired on November 9, 2010.

Plot

Bobby was a couch potato who watches survival shows. He kept track of everything he heard from the TV. Being a unfathomably ignorant man, Bobby thinks he can go out and try this on his own. Bobby drives out into the woods and begins to film his documentary, making his own spring mix salad out of plants found nearby and begins eating them. Bobby soon collapses to the ground in pain and dies, not knowing that the plants he included in his salad were actually poisonous and delivered a triple threat whammy. The salad he ate contained oleander (which affects the cardiovascular system and causes heart palpitations), foxglove (which affects the digestive system and causes vomiting and diarrhea), and hemlock (the most poisonous plant in the world).

"In this battle between man and nature, Bobby went in unarmed....and never came out."

Interviewees

  • Brian Drake - Wildlife Biologist

Trivia

  • This death is moderately based on the death of a Toronto citizen named Richard Code, who did something similar after watching episodes of Survivorman.
  • A picture of a hemlock tree was mistakenly shown while recapping the poisonous plants, however it is actually Conium Maculatum, a member of the carrot species, that is actually the famed poisonous hemlock plant.
