"No Fun-gus", Way to Die #661, is the second death to be shown in the season 6 episode (and series finale) "Death, The Final Frontier", which aired on July 15, 2012.

Plot

Chad, a former alcoholic, has been sober for a full month, and his friends are throwing a sobriety party for him for his accomplishment. He brings his still-alcoholic wife, Sandy, to the party. However, she snuck some alcoholic drinks into the party and everybody starts to notice how drunk she is.

Sandy then eats several slices of pizza, which are topped with foraged ink cap mushrooms.  And to make things worse, she gets a large bottle of Vodka and pours it into the punch bowl, and drinks the whole punch which shocks everyone. Then Sandy loudly proclaims, "I'm wasted!" Within seconds, however, she suddenly collapses to the floor, dead, while everyone looks on in shock.

Unbeknownst to anyone, Ink Cap Mushrooms contain a mycotoxin called Coprine, which metabolizes into 1-aminocyclopropanol, an enzyme that prevented the alcohol in Sandy/Sandra's systems from metabolizing, causing her to die from a heart attack, due to a fatal case of Coprinus syndrome.
