"Hang Dunked", Way to Die #284, is the sixth death to be featured in "The End is Weird", which aired on October 19, 2010.


An egotistical bully named Rodney White hogs a basketball game. Rodney plays a match with a couple of the players and does a slam dunk after kicking one of the players in the groin and using him like a platform. To rub his feat in the other players faces, he put his head through the basket gloating all his glory until they demanded to continue playing in hopes of putting Rodney in his place. However, as he drops down, his necklace gets caught in the net and acts like a makeshift noose, snapping his neck, and he dies twenty seconds later.
