1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Doggie Style", Way to Die #85, is the fifth death featured in "I See Dead People (And They're Cracking Me Up)", which aired on April 5, 2009.


Zack Taylor, an alcoholic, entered into a liquor store in order to get more alcohol to drink. While there, he opted to steal some items from the store shelves. When Zack was confronted by the shopkeeper, he fled the store, grabbing a hot dog on his way out. After putting it into his mouth, he continued running. The force caused the hot dog to slip into his trachea, causing him to choke to death. The shopkeeper later calls 911. As he talked to a female police officer, the paramedics took Zack's body to an ambulance to transfer it to a morgue.
