"Pretty Fly For a Dead Guy", Way to Die #680, is the first death to be featured on "Tweets From The Dead", which originally aired on March 26th 2012.


Egon had an extreme hatred for bugs: he couldn't stand their very existance. Egon would collect bugs to torture & kill them. So he covered a wall of his house with homemade flypaper coated with cyanoacrylate. When he was finished, he gazed back at his work. Then a chunehead showed up, and Egon swatted at it with his flyswater, stumped over a bucket, became completely stuck to his wall & completely emobilized. He struggled & thrashed, desperately trying to escape his ordeal while screaming for help, but it was completely useless because no one comes to his aide. After 2 days completely stuck to the wall, he lost all control of his bladder. About 5 days later, Egon was scared, weak, dirty, & teetering on the edge of life, & so Egon inevitably died. But the story doesn't end there. The bugs that survived Egon's manic tortures escaped. They smelled his rotting corpse and they devoured him. They also layed eggs in his rectum & other internal organs. They ate, & ate & ate, until Egon was completely reduced to a skeleton.

"Egon wanted all bugs to be gone. But then his super fly paper turned into die paper. In the end, he went from a no-fly zone to Meet the Beatles."
