"Gas Holed", Way to Die #278: is the third death featured in "Putting A Smiley Face On Death", which aired on September 14, 2010.


A proctologist named Dr. Butera with a fetish for women's rears begins to operate on a pole dancer named Maki, who damaged her rectum during a porno movie shoot. Prior to the operation, Dr. Butera forgets to advise her not to eat anything 12 hours before the operation. On the day of the operation, Butera's cauterizer ignites Maki's flatulence (due to a chilli dog she ate), creating a fireball which travels through his windpipe and incinerates his lungs, resulting in him dying.

"And Dr. Butera was ass-assinated."
