"Cardiac-A-Breast", Way to Die #55, is the sixth death featured in "Putting A Smiley Face On Death", which aired on September 14, 2010.


Cindy was invited to a party. The problem was, she had nothing to wear. So, she made do, by buying a full-metal bra, and picked out the dress she wanted carefully.
