"Dip N' Die", Way to Die #206, is the fourth death featured in "Getting A Rise From The Dead", which aired on February 16, 2011.


A man named George Puckett is a member of a vigilante illegal-alien hunting group called "The Minutemen". George also had an addiction to chewing tobacco, chewing the equivalent of 4 packs of cigarettes a day. George goes down a dirtroad and hits a big rock, causing him to bite his tongue while chewing tobacco. George also suffered from a rare genetic condition called erectile glossitis, which caused his tongue to swell up due to the tobacco juices entering the wound. George ultimately chokes to death on his swelling tongue.

It was like the opposite of anaphylatic shock. Instead of his throat swelling around his tongue, his tongue filled up his throat. And within minutes, he experienced a horrible choking-to-death fate.

"George was a gun-toting, chewing, spitting ignoramus who thought his paranoid hatred of illegals was protecting his country. In the end, he did do his country a big favor... by dying."
