1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Bitch Zapped", Way to Die #140, is the fourth death featured in "Waking Up Dead", which aired on February 3, 2010.


Ron was a slave to his wife for ten years, a shrewish woman named Marcie, and she was, to be delicate, his evil, ball-busting harpy-witch wife of the century. Their relationship wasn't husband and wife anymore, but more like prisoner and guard. She wants her husband Ron to mow their lawn rather than work on his car, but after getting fed up with Ron's shoddy workmanship of mowing the lawn, Marcie shows him the right way of mowing the lawn. Little does she know that she was heading towards the cord of Ron's arc welder. After running the mower over the cord, Marcie gets electrocuted to death, as she falls on the lawn and gets sent to Hell where she belongs and as she deserved. Ron, delighted that he is now free of her henpecking and hellish antics, gloats at his now-deceased wife and proclaims "There is a God."
