1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Bush Whacked 3: Waxed Off", Way to Die #915, is the second death to be featured in "Dirt Nap", which is set to air on November 7, 2011.


An angry woman named Nancy goes to a spa run by two Thai women. After enduring her constant complaints, the masseuse and spa owner decide to give her a free bikini wax. One of the waxing strips catches fire and ignites Nancy's pubic hair when it is brought too close. The spa workers put out the fire, but the smoke sets off the sprinkler system and drenches everybody in the room. Nancy then freaked out and panicked and tried to run out the room because she had an extremely rare condition called aquagenic urticaria (a rare, allergic reaction to water) before she can run out. Unable to get out of the room, she then dies of anaphylactic shock.

"Quick action saved Nancy from serious burns, but the smoke triggered the sprinkler system, and Nancy had a fatal meltdown."

  • This is the only death in the "Bush Whacked" trilogy where the death was not plant-related (the "bush" in this case was a reference to Nancy's pubic hair).
  • Nancy's death is similar to the wicked witch's in The Wizard Of Oz, however, she wasn't in a spa, and Dorothy splashed water all over her, while Nancy was sprayed with water from the fire sprinklers.
