"Die-arrhea", Way to Die #276, is the sixth death featured in "Cure for the Common Death, Part II", which aired on December 15, 2010.


On February 21, 2004, in Louisville, KY. An obnoxious, renowned jockey named Pedro who was evicted from his hotel becomes desperate to win a horse race so he can retire for good, so he becomes anorexic and starts abusing illegal Chinese laxatives to lose enough weight to race. Pedro surprisingly wins, but dies from massive dehydration, potassium deficiency, and renal failure from the laxatives he took and no fluids to replenish his electrolytes.
