"Pissed Off", Way to Die #210, is the fourth death to be featured in "Death: A User's Manual", which aired on March 29, 2009.

Plot

Irishmen Patty and Nick have two passions in life: golfing and drinking, not necessarily in that order. On a vacation to the United States, they proved to be much better drinkers than golfers. When Patty hit a slice to retrieve the ball, a rat ran up his pant leg, scratched him, and peed on his leg, leaving an open wound to get infected. The Duffer's demise has already begun. A week later back in Ireland, Patty's health was declining and eventually, Patty died of leptospirosis.

"Paddy eventually calms down, and the two finish their match; but this golfer's next hole... will be six feet deep."
