"Mine Over Splatter", Way To Die #337, is the third death to be featured in "Death On A Stick", which aired on August 3, 2010.


Three former Viet Cong soldiers are arguing about what is the best aphrodisiac and decide to settle the score once and for all by playing Russian roulette. The three all dodge the bullet in the gun they use for the game and feel so invincible that they keep stomping the ground, which triggers an underground land mine left over from the Vietnam War that was buried underneath their shack. The explosion destroyed their shack and leaves nothing but a bunch of their severed corpses raining down on the ground.

"These 'Once Upon a Time' warriors were feeling invincible. But sometimes your number comes up in unexpected ways. For these three, that number was 35,000."
