"Tapped Out", Way to Die #597, is the fifth death featured in "Hurry Up and Die", which aired on October 26, 2010.
Two aspiring amateur wrestlers named Stink Face and Dirt Bomb with dreams of going pro assault each other with increasingly insane objects, including fluorescent light bulbs. During practice, one wrestler slashes his partner in the chest with a weed whacker. The first wrestler collapses and dies, but this is a bit bizarre. Shouldn't the guy that just got whacked fall down? Stink Face and Dirt Bomb did not realize it but fluorescent bulbs contain a mercury vapor. When Stink Face sucked the mercury in, the mercury caused his air sacs to turn black, along with his lungs and heart. The mercury also entered his blood stream through the open staple wounds on his chest.
"Stink Face and Dirt Bomb were talentless, clueless, and now one of them...is lifeless."
