1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Clay Achin'", Way to Die #243, is the second death to be featured in "Fatal Distractions", which aired on October 5, 2010.


A couple of stoners, Joe and Charlie, created a bong out of clay, the Claymaker 420. Along with using weed and smoke, they used flavor disks to flavor the weed; chopped bacon, coffee-dipped paper, orange peels, any flavor. After they finished their creation, all they had to do was to bake it into a kiln. Their female friend had one in her backyard, and she put the bong in the kiln. After she turned on the propane, all three of them smoke cannabis. Over time, Joe and Charlie went to see how the kiln was doing. After noticing that the kiln's flame was out, all they had to do was to light a match to warm it up. Instead, the lit up match turns the bong into a bomb, and turns the clay into deadly shrapnel, and the resulting explosion kills the two stoners. Their female friend was not only shocked and a little scared, but also a little bummed.

"After a wasted while, the two stoners went to check on their creation. The makeshift kiln had flamed out. Nothing a lit match couldn't fix. Their invention went from bong...to bomb."
