"Fansicle", Way to Die #299 is the sixth death to be aired on "Stupid is as Stupid Dies" which aired on September 21, 2010.


If you want to see the embodiment of football obsession, look no further than George. His commitment and loyalty to his team knew no bounds. He would show up hours before a game, covered in body paint matching his team's colors (blue & white), and get as drunk as a skunk. He was even more obnoxious when the game started. Unfortunately for George (who was shirtless, and only a pair of shorts covering his legs), an arctic cold front was arriving that day, and he was at great risk of Hypothermia. As the game progressed, George didn't notice what was happening internally; he only knew that he was really drunk. It was only when the game was about to end that George realized he was freezing. But, by then, he had lost the ability to speak. His body temperature dropped below 88 degrees, causing severer hypothermia. It also didn't help that he was drunk, which impeded his blood flow, and his fellow fans couldn't understand his cries for help. Also, due to the blue paint, nobody could see that he was literally turning blue. George's body got colder and colder as the low temperatures slowly froze his soul. Finally, with his skin ice-cold, every muscle immobile, his organs completely unable to function, with a morbid stare, George died.
