"Written Offed", Way to Die #168, is the sixth death to be featured in "Waking Up Dead", which aired on February 3, 2010.


Armenian immigrant Joe Syracki's army-navy store was in the brink of facing foreclosure. After a banker comes in with a counter-foreclosure form, he orders Mr. Syracki to sign it. He does sign and, after doing so, throws the banker's pen aside. After demanding a new pen so he can countersign, the banker spots what looks like a pen which is actually a pen gun, but Mr. Syracki says that it's not a good pen. The banker demands him to give him the pen and Joe does so. After trying to write with it, he discovers it the hard way. He inadvertently aims it to his forehead and accidentally shoots himself dead. Mr. Syracki silently gloats.
