"Pop and Lox,"Way to Die #94, is the seventh and final death featured in "Die-abestic", which aired on February 1, 2012.
Sophie Lebowitz (aka Sister Shmear) is an arrogant, Jewish-American break dancer. She & her crew "The Massapequa B-girls" were about to have a dance-off with "The Levittown Lady Breakers". Shmear also had a modified sound system on her car which boomed out sound waves at a sonic level. So at the dance-off, the two dance crews go toe to toe in a colossal dance showdown, and Sister Shmear decides to intervene. But in the middle of her dance, she dies of Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome.
