"Kung Pao Pow!!!", Way to Die #365, is the third death to be featured in "The One About Dumb People Dying", which aired on February 8, 2011.
With China's population being estimated at 1.4 billion people, the deceased end up at a mandatory crematorium run by Chung Lee, who is also a corrupt thief and grave robber. He would strip a deceased body of anything of value and then put them in the burning chamber so they can be burned into ashes. His next deceased person was a man with the surname of "Wang", who died of what was thought to be a lightning strike two days earlier, and his burn wound near his heart is visible. After Chung relieved Wang's body of his gold-capped teeth, and set the body in the burning chamber, the body explodes, blasting the metal door off its hinges, flying and decapitating Chung cleanly.
It turns out that Wang didn't die from lightning after all. An autopsy would have revealed that Wang died after being struck by a piece of a weather rocket, launched in response to a month-long drought. The canister that releases rain-inducing silver iodide into the atmosphere failed to detonate and hurtled itself back down to Earth, embedding in Wang's chest. Little did Chung know, the explosive was buried deep in Wang's chest, and when the flames in the chamber activated, the canister finally heated up and detonated.
