"E-I-E-I-Oww!", Way to Die #487 is the fifth death to be featured in "Eat, Pray, Die" which aired on August 8, 2011.


Steve and Jerry are two delinquents sentenced to 60 days on a work release program on a farm after being caught for grand theft auto. While working in the barn, there was a lot more fooling around than working; Steve also almost kills Jerry with a pitchfork. Steve finds and picks up a captive bolt pistol, thinking it is a pump to a milking machine. The farmer's daughter shows up to keep them from hurting themselves and warns him not to play with it, but Steve points it at her saying that he wants milk. Still thinking that it's a pump, Steve uses the captive bolt pistol on his own chest, piercing his heart, resulting in death by massive blood loss, sending the grand theft auto farm worker to hell.
