"Down With the Clown", Way to Die #260, is the seventh death featured in "Deadliest Kitsch", which aired on October 24, 2011.


Funny Eddie, a circus clown with an axe to grind, stalks a horror-core hip-hop band called "Infernal Clown Posse" with threatening hate mail and plans to sabotage one of their concerts, believing that they give real clowns a bad name. Eddie, who decided threatening hate mail wasn't enough, rushes to the front row, but is knocked unconscious when one of the group members hits him in the head with a Faygo bottle. After regaining consciousness a short time later, Eddie becomes enraged, runs backstage and goes to unplug their speakers. Still drenched in soda (which contains a high concentration of salt), Eddie gets electrocuted and dies of a heart attack. One of the members of Infernal Clown Posse to says to Funny Eddie, "It's the hater. He's... Dead." Then, they gloat "In Yo' Face" in the tune of their song to the now-dead Funny Eddie.

"Funny Eddie went down with a frown. He didn't realize it takes all kinds of clowns, to make the world go round." ''In Yo FACE!!"
