1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Potty Mouth", Way to Die #282, is the sixth death to be featured in "Fatal Distractions", which aired on October 5, 2010.


Sheila is an executive of a failing mediocre savings-and-loans house. She comes home to find her neighbor, Marty, asking about the batteries he found in her trash, and she responds by threatening to shove them up his ass. Due to the stress of her job, Sheila is also a geophagia. In simpler terms, she was a dirt eater. And what closer dirt is there than Marty's dirt? She grabs scoops some of the dirt, and eats it. Marty catches her, and she runs back home. What Sheila didn't know was that the dirt Marty produced was mixed with his own fecal matter. Sheila eats Marty's mix until 3 days later and dies from a H.U.S. (Hemolytic-uremic syndrome) due to E.coli poisoning and a ruptured colon caused by the bacteria.

For Sheila, 'rocky road' was a big bowl of Marty's organic soil.
