"Catch and Decease", Way to Die #608, is the second death to be featured in "Putting A Smiley Face On Death", which aired on September 14, 2010.


Jeffery Miller (nicknamed "Cuzo" which means jackass) has came to the Amazon basin searching for gold. But he's too lazy to do it himself, so he hires a group of natives to search for it and abuses them while they are doing so. To beat the heat, Jeff decided to cool off by swimming in the river. While he was peeing, the urine attracted a candiru catfish which enters his penis and attaches itself to the side of his urethra. He had two options; leave it in and risk amputation, or pull it out and tear out the inside of his member. Jeff ripped the fish out, but lost much of the inside of his penis causing it to bleed. Soon, the escaping blood had attracted a school of hungry piranhas, which began to eat Jeff alive, first reducing his arm to bones, and finishing off the rest of him. Later, Jeff's skeleton floats by in the river.
