"Cross Bown'd", Way to Die #144, is the third death to be featured in, "Think Globally, Die Locally", which aired on March 19, 2012.


Mr. Logan Granfield had recently won $78,000,000 in a Mega Lottery and started by buying an extremely large mansion, a butler, and a $1,000 dollar a day hooker. He developed a delusional paranoia after winning it.

He was afraid the whole world wanted to steal his money. He then found his expensive artwork to be a thief as well. He shot an arrow at it with his expensive scope crossbow. As he attempted to pull it out, he received a fatal electric shock throughout his body and he died. How? When he shot his titanium arrow at the painting. It had made contact with the 220 volt powerline inside the wall. As he received the electrocution, it made its way to his heart and sent him into cardiac arrest.

Theodore: "I fear the master has expired."

Hooker: "Am I still going to get paid?"
