"Ji-Had It Coming", Way to Die #127, is the second death featured in "Dead Before They Know It", which aired on March 23, 2011.


An award-winning American reporter named Tanya, who denounces her U.S. citizenship, converts to Islam, and marries a Taliban leader. Tanya celebrates by firing off several rounds of an AK-47 into the air during her wedding to fit in with the crowd, but loses control of the gun and dies when one of the bullets hits a metal pitcher and ricochets into her skull, where it bounces inside and causes massive bleeding and immediately fatal wounds, killing her instantly.

"Tanya was just another bleeding heart who went native. She thought she was going to help overthrow the U.S. In the end, she did her country a huge favor... by dying."


  • Also called "Terrorist Wedding" on the Spike TV website.
  • The ending line of the doggerel "in the end, she did her country a huge favor... by dying" is a variation of the same line used in the doggerel for Way to Die #206.
