"Shop 'Till You Drown", Way to Die #634, is the fourth death to be featured in "Dirt Nap", which aired on November 7, 2011.


Cecilia is selling fake designer clothes to her friend Eva for high prices, but then is thrown out by Eva's husband, Roger (who hates Cecilia because his wife keeps spending money on her, and Roger lost most of his money to the current economic downturn). As Cecilia leaves, she falls into the couple's swimming pool, gets tangled in its cover, and drowns.

"Cecilia was a parasite who sucked money like it was blood. Then one day, she sucked too hard. And wound up... liquidated."
