1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Inquisi-Torn", Way to Die #919, is the sixth death to be featured in "Death On A Stick", which aired on August 3, 2010.


Father Gomez was an inventor who designed torture devices. He was denounced as a heretic during the inquisition. His life began to take a turn for the danger zone because he also invented something he called the Spanish donkey also known as the wooden horse. It was essentially a board with a sharp wedge standing on four legs. The victim, in this case, Father Gomez; would straddle the board like a horse and have cannonballs tied to their legs and left to sit on it as the wedge and the combined weight of the cannonballs and their body tore their pelvis, sending straight to hell where he belongs. Father Gomez was the first victim to be placed on his own device and slowly dies from blood loss.
