Way to Die #255: The Depart-Dead, is the third death featured in "Stupid Is As Death Does", which aired on March 29, 2011.


A group of white, teenage wannabe-gangstas from South Boston play a drinking game called "Edward Fortyhands", in which drinkers have beer bottles taped to their hands and they cannot do anything (smoke, urinate, leave the room, etc.) until the beer bottles are empty. One of them spits a half-lit cigar under a couch, which starts burning the flammable synthetic stuffing, releasing hydrogen cyanide into the room. Because they cannot open the door, they suffocate (asphyxiate) on the fumes. The only one who didn't participate in the game arrives too late, and discovers his dead friends, prompting him to ask someone else in the house to call and ambulance.

Man: Somebody call 9-1-1!
