1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Dead Mime ☺", Way to Die #211, is the sixth death to be featured in Death Takes A Vacation, which aired on November 14, 2011.


A mime named Marcello liked to harass other people, but they hate him, thinking that it was a scam. He buys a pickle from a nearby stall. When Marcello ate the pickle, he chokes on it to death, possibly due to being mute for a long period of time. When a pedestrian saw Marcello choking, more people, who came towards him, started clapping and laughing, thinking that was part of the act, and nobody was there to help him. Thus, resulting in Marcello’s death due to lack of oxygen from choking on the piece of the pickle that he ate, sending him straight to Hell and putting his mean and harassing antics to an end.

"Like all mimes, Marcello made no money. All he had to eat was one dill pickle. Now what? He's choking. People are laughing. The audience loves it. Maybe he's onto something. Mmmmmmaybe not."
