"Dia de Los Morons", Way to Die #318, is the seventh and final death featured in "Wait, Don't Tell Me – You're Dead", which aired on August 15, 2011.

Plot

Zach (Mike Hatch) and Angela (Kim Bray) were two annoying and easy-to-hate trick-or-treaters going door-to-door at 2 in the morning. They knocked on the old man's home, but the old man wants to know if they know what time is it. They go around the neighborhood, committing pranks such as teepeeing a house, smashing jack-o-lanterns and spraying each other with aerosol silly-string. For their final prank, they are going to lighting a flaming bag of dog feces to sit on the front steps of a home. They light a match, and Zach's skeleton shirt along with the solvent based silly-string caused him to be engulfed in flames within seconds. To make things worse, Zach's skeleton costume is made of polyester; also highly flammable and prone to deepening burns. The fire burns through Zach's skin and deep into his bones, killing him and sending the prank-loving man-child to purgatory to be judged. Angela panicked when Zach caught alight; she started banging on the door, screaming for help, unaware that it is already too late to help Zach.
