1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Big Boned", Way to Die #306, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Death, The New Black", which aired on July 18, 2011.


Steve and Paul are two drunken insurance salesmen who crash a beauty pageant for plus-sized women which they will later play with. While Steve has come to simply enjoy the pageant, Paul accidentally insults the models. The three finalists, Alegria, Beth, and Devon step out on the end of the runway (which was not meant to hold their weight) to yell at him. The runway support snaps, and all three women (who, when combined, weigh 997 pounds) fall on Paul and crush him to death. The cause of death is when the weight of the three women intentionally crush his ribcage and punctured his lungs, murdering him and sending him to heaven, much to the relief of Alegria, Devon and Beth.

"Did you hear the one about the drunk insurance salesman? His jokes about fat... fell flat."
