"Signed Out", Way to Die #522, is the first death featured in "It's a Dead, Dead, Dead World", which aired on July 15, 2012.
When a lazy man named Joseph, also known as Joe's wife, Serena, announces that she is divorcing him, he repeatedly injures himself in order to frame her as being abusive. Serena thinks that Joe is a bit weird and asked him, "What are you doing?" She told Joe to stop and saying that he's crazy. Joe slaps his face, hits his face with something on the fireplace, smashes his hand with a piano cover and hurts his groin with a piano chair, and tells that she'll never leave him, till death do us part. Concerned neighbors called 911, Paramedics arrive and put him on a gurney as police confront Serena, but it rolls down a hill until it hits a rock. Joe started screaming in horror as he is launched off the gurney and lands on top of a curved road sign, impaling himself through the stomach, unable to scream anymore and send Joe to hell.
"Joe never saw it coming. He was blindsided by his wife, beat up by himself, and then....he signed off."
- Long Day's Gurney (Spike website)
- Continuity / Revealing: When Joe lands on the road sign, no blood gushes out of his stomach immediately; the next shot shows the blood already on the sign, but not gushing. Also, the shot of Joe landing onto the sign is clearly played backwards.
