1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Dill D'oh!", Way to Die #149, is the third death to be featured in "Ready Or Not, Here Comes Death", which aired on February 23, 2011.


Mr. Roger Franklin was a retired chemistry teacher who was sent to a nursing home by his greedy children who had him declared incapable of caring for himself just so they could get his money. He does demonstrations for the other residents (despite being reprimanded by Peter who was a mean-spirited nursing home aide), including one in which he uses a pickle to conduct electric current (which amused the residents). Peter arrives and tells Roger not to use electric devices. When Peter grabs the equipment to confiscate it, he completes a circuit that sends an electric shock through his heart, ending his life. Not listening to Roger who refuses him to grab an already lit pickle, Peter gets electrocuted and dies, sending the mean-spirited nursing home aide to Hell where he belongs.

"Peter grabbed the pickle... and got juiced."
