"Fat-ality", Way to Die #400, is the first death to be featured in "Putting A Smiley Face On Death", which aired on September 14, 2010.


Dave is an overweight slacker who dreams of becoming a professional body builder, but is too lazy to work out and lose weight. Dave decides to get liposuction as a shortcut to exercise, but was unable to afford it. So, he decided to recruit his equally moronic friend Johnny, to perform a D.I.Y. liposuction. Using a can of freeze spray and painkillers for anesthesia and a garage vacuum for a cannula, Dave prepares for the liposuction. Johnny makes a crude incision into Dave's stomach and slides the hose inside of the incision and turns the vacuum on. However, for a minute they thought their crazy plan was actually going to work, but then...the fat hit the fan when Johnny had unknowingly latched the hose onto a piece of Dave's intestines, as he screams for Johnny to turn the vacuum off as it began sucking the life out of Johnny's dumb friend. By the time Johnny can pull the plug, the vacuum had sucked up enough of Dave's intestines to cause blood loss, shock and death, which turned Dave from a fatty, into a Fat-ality.
