Way to Die #425
On May 16, 2003, in San Diego, CA. Two inept tennis players who idolize 1970s stars John McEnroe and Bjorn Borg hire their own personal referee. When the ref awards the game point, the loser of the point snaps his racket in half and climbs on the referee chair as the ref jumps out of it. The chair tips and the shaft of the racket impales the player's colon.

Way to Die #233
On October 4, 2007, in Pyramid Lake Reservation, NV. At a Native American gift shop, an idiotic tourist helps himself to a basket of hot peppers, not realizing that they are intensely hot ghost chili peppers. He fumbles in the refrigerator for a drink, but gulps down a jar of snake venom (that the shopkeeper had saved for a university professor) by mistake. The venom enters his bloodstream through sores in his mouth, caused by eating the peppers, poisoning and eventually killing him.
