1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"French Fried", Way to Die #105, the fifth death to be featured in "Death Bites!", which has been aired on December 9, 2009.


Claude, a dying elderly man, was almost climaxing but the only thing keeping him alive was a respirator and his French Maid, Fifi. Then she performs a striptease to get him off as an early Christmas gift.. She then wrapped Christmas lights 'round herself (which resembled an Xmas elf). Claude's respirator warned him about cardiac overload. Then she climbed right on him. Claude was getting nervous as his heart was beating. Sleigh bells were ringing in Claude's ear. Then as Claude went lights out, the lights went out as well. When the "maid" plugged in the lights, Claude's house couldn't take that much electricity.

Before he went lights out, the lights went out.

Much to her horror after seeing Claude dead. His respirator short-circuited and he died, thus sending him to Heaven.

"Claude was already rolling down death's highway.He just took...an early exit."
