1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Out to Launch", Way to Die #216, is the fourth death featured in "Enter the Ferret", which aired on March 12, 2012.


A group of stoned teenagers in a park decide to mess around by putting one of the back tire of Nicky's motorcycles against the base of the carousel, getting on, and revving the bike up to create a large centrifugal force on the merry-go-round. With the carousel rotating at an extreme speed, Nicky flies off, and his brain stem is impaled orally on a horseshoe's pole sticking out from the sandbox nearby. The other teenagers upon seeing his corpse react in shock and horror.

In other words, [Nicky]'s about to get the ride of his life... and death.”
