Dwayne and his buds were just a bunch of good 'ol boys getting some yucks. Luther was just a bad boy making some illegal bucks. When Luther met Dwayne, it gave us a good idea for a new show: 1000 Ways to Pie! You want another slice of that, Luther?

"Fatally Gourd", Way to Die #870, is the seventh and last death featured in "The One About Dumb People Dying", which aired on February 8, 2011.


Dwayne and his buddies go pumpkin chunking using a homemade pumpkin cannon at his farm. Meanwhile, another man named Luther is stealing pumpkins from the farm across to sell on the black market. However, Luther chose the wrong farm to pick pumpkins, as he was right in the middle of the shooting range. Luther ducks down and avoids the first few shots but just as he stands up to make his escape, one of the pumpkins from the cannon makes contact with Luther, and the stem of the pumpkin impales his heart, killing him instantly.
