1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Cast Offed", Way to Die #132, is the third death featured in the episode "Hurry Up and Die", which aired on October 26, 2010.


Cooter was an old redneck; he loved nothing more than booze, guns and welfare checks he regularly receives from the government. Before getting even more drunk, he had some work to do as the fall and winter seasons hit; he had to hit the wood-splitter to make some firewood, but he is so drunk, he breaks his arm by getting it caught in the machine. Rather than spend his welfare money on a real doctor, Cooter saw himself as a do-it-yourselfer, deciding to apply a homemade cast to himself, but he makes two mistakes: he didn't reset his broken bone the right way and he made the cast too tight. A month later, Cooter is ready to remove the cast and asks his daughter, Tammy, to help him operate the table saw to get the job done. When Cooter takes off the cast, fat globules of bone marrow leaked into his bloodstream and caused an embolism in his heart. Cooter was dead within seconds, leaving Tammy freaked out.

"The Redneck gods smiled down upon the useless drunk...and then they pulled his plug."
