1000 Ways To Die Wiki

Great Hanged, Way to Die #434, is the seventh and the Final Segment in "Death Be Not Stupid", which aired on March 15, 2009.


Hank told his wife that he writes children's books and is currently working on his first best-seller, but in reality, he spends every day drinking beer with his friends. Since his wife is a surgeon who earns a lot of money, he doesn't have to take care of anything. After thinking that his wife is returning home and he hasn't written anything, he needs to come up with a situation where he doesn't need to give an explanation for the unwritten books, so his friends tell him that they'll tie him to a tree, making his wife think that he got robbed and, therefore, he was unable to work. Tied to a tree with his arms above him, Hank waits for his wife to return, but she is busy taking care of a long and complicated operation before returning home. He starts to have trouble breathing and his heart couldn't take the breathing resistance anymore, so it stops for good and Hank dies from heart failure, ceasing his dishonest tellings forever. Later on, his wife finally comes home and expresses horror upon seeing his hanging corpse.
