1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Gasketballed", Way to Die #226, is the third death to be featured in "Unforced Errors", which aired on February 8, 2009.


Meet Jack and Sally. They love having sex, just like any other college student, horny. Then all of a sudden, Jack sees something - a giant basketball. It was left there from yesterday's pep-rally, but both of them want to go in there because they can have not only sex privately, but also have fun.

It was Sallie who was the first to see the inside. It looked very cool. They decided to go in through the zipper. Soon, they were having fun. Jack's voice was so funny and both of them found out this was a great place indeed.

Unfortunately, after several minutes, they needed fresh air - the helium of the ball was getting the better of them. But disaster struck - the magic zipper was no-where to be found. Soon, they both suffocate of lack of oxygen.

"Once they locked themselves in their funhouse, it was only a matter time before their fun turned to none."
