  "Par For The Corpse", Way to Die #209, is the third death featured in "Getting A Rise From The Dead", which aired on February 16, 2011.


A young couple making out in a cemetery are scared off by a sickly man named Jim who seems zombifed, even though he is actually near death. So what happened to Jim? Jim was a groundskeeper at this cemetary, who had zero respect for the dead and had been using the cemetery as his own personal golf course. One day, Jim had developed a high fever and blisters appeared on his hands, arms, and face. Believing he had the flu, he laid down under a tree and took a nap. When he woke up, his blisters became lesions, causing the skin to peel off his face. Jim had sprayed the grass at the cemetary with a very powerful fungicide. Unbeknowst to Jim, he was allergic to the fungicide, and over the time he was combining work and play, his golf tees had contracted the chemical several times. His habit of gnawing on the tees caused him to contract the illness. The fatal allergic reaction causes his organs to burn and fail. He tried to get help, but then he scared away the couple. The chemical killed him and then he went from the living the dead dead.

"In the graveyard of horror, see Jim spray, see Jim play, see Jim DIE!!!"
