1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Cham-Pained", Way to Die #593, is the fifth death to be featured in "Wild Wild Death", which aired on November 21, 2011.


Heather, an obnoxious, ill-tempered stolen art auctioneer, is granted permission by her crooked-minded boss to run a stolen art auction, which will open with a champagne fountain. When the auction begins, Heather decides to run the champagne fountain by herself, while standing on a chair. When the cork of the champagne bottle launches into Heather's eye, she falls backward into the pyramid of glasses behind her. The glasses impaled into her body make her bleed out, but what caused her death was an impalement wound in the brachial artery, killing her within four minutes and sending her to hell where she belongs.

"With no confidence in the rent-a-help, Heather decides to pour the bubbly herself. Bad idea."
