Jake N' Baked, Way to Die #518, is the third death to be featured in "Death Not Be Stupid", which aired on March 15, 2009.


Jake Basso has the ideal personality everyone expects from a metal worker: punctual, friendly and thorough, but there was one problem he had: he was a narcoleptic. Off and on, he sleeps anywhere--the bathroom, his home couch, even at his work place. One day, Jake falls asleep in a curing oven. Not knowing that Jake is in the oven, Manny, a friend and co-worker, turns on the oven at 600 degrees Farenheit for 12 hours, baking Jake alive. After twelve hours have passed, the co-worker opens the oven and is horrified to see Jake baked. This left Jake more extra crispy.

"Jake was a sleeper who could sleep anywhere. But after falling asleep in an oven, he'll be sleeping heaven."

"Twelve hours of extreme temperature left Jake extra crispy."
