"Bird Brained", Way to Die #378, is the fifth death to be featured on "Death On A Stick", which aired on August 3, 2010.


Three hot girls get into a limousine for a bachelorette party. Denise, the bachelorette was a young teetotaler. She thought a couple sips of champagne was as drunk as she was going to get. She was extremely wrong, her best friend surprised her when she pulls out a bottle of absinthe (notoriously highly alcoholic booze). The three get very drunk, and start doing crazy things (like taking their panties off). In the height of her stupor, Denise (who was a lot more drunk than her two friends) puts her head and arms through the moon-roof and does drunk stuff. Suddenly, a low flying pigeon directly (who had been startled by a car) flew into her mouth! The impact of the collision, knocked her head back, in a way that broke her neck and shutting down all brain function. Denise then fell down back into the limo and died.
