"Onesie & Donesie", Way to Die #396, is the first death to be featured in "Young, Dumb, and Full of Death", which aired on November 9, 2010.


Chet was a klutzy salesman and pitchman. During their demonstrations, he first injures himself with a folding ladder after it failed to stay sturdy. He then injures himself with a samurai sword after it he hit the table with it. The samurai sword broke and flew a piece into his chest. He spent days in a hospital bed, and was later back on the set selling and smiling. His final product to demonstrate, an adult-sized onesie, caught on fire after he showed off some giveaway aromatherapy candles. He writhed on the floor, without stopping or rolling, and eventually, he perished. A stage man tried dousing him off with a broken fire extinguisher, but had no luck. Chet died due to major burns on his body.
