"The Chokes On You", Way to Die #322, is the second death featured in "Come On, Get Deathy", which aired on January 20, 2010.


A dwarf named Ramone dates an abusive lover named Doris who wants him to make money. Ramone tries to practice for a musical stand-up comedy act, but he is not funny. After testing his hackneyed jokes numerous times in front of Doris, she finally gets fed up and hits him in the face with her purse, causing his harmonica to go down his throat and choke him to death while Doris laughs, thinking his choking is part of the act. Before she finally realizes he's actually choking, it's too late.

"It's funny for people what they do for love. Well, not that funny."
