"Smother-In-Law", Way to Die #326, is the fourth death to be featured in "Today's Special: Death", which aired on August 1, 2011.
Barbara, a meddlesome, shrewish, obnoxious, and overweight mother-in-law pesters her son's wife Sabrina (her daughter-in-law) by nagging her about her son's food preferences. When Sabrina is cooking vegetables, Barbara puts cheese on them much to the former's disgust, also insulting the mother-in-law's weight.
Taking offense, Barbara calls Sabrina a "dirty little bitch" while giving her a slap in the face. In anger, Sabrina stabs the knife into the wooden knife holder before leaving. Barbara then tries to take a frozen pizza out of the freezer, but the box is wedged between other groceries.
The force of Barbara's tugging sends the refrigerator crashing down on her. When the freezer fell on top of her, the sharp end of the door cuts through her jugular vein and carotid artery while the rest of the refrigerator breaks her skull into pieces, and she died instantly as a result.
"Everybody who has a mother-in-law can sometimes find them...trying, you suck it up and learn to leave each other alone. But then there's the bitch like Barbara, who's better off...left for dead."
