"Reef Stew", Way to Die #202, is the second death to be featured in "Dead on Dead", which aired on February 24, 2010.


Steve and Carlos were two starving drug smugglers who just so happened to fall in the hands of a starving Fijian tribe who were all tired of eating fruit and vegetables and wanted meat. The three men threatened to kill the three women if they didn't find meat anytime soon. Steve and Carlos came along and thought the men would give them food. Instead, they knocked Steve and Carlos out and when they awoke, they were being cooked and boiled alive by the cannibals. After five hours, their muscular tissue easily separated from the bone, making them edible. The six cannibals then cut up Steve and Carlos' dead bodies and ate them as a feast. 

"The meal was everything they had hoped, tender and juicy. As for Steve and Carlos, they were in it with the best spots... at the head of the table. Praise the gods, for one finger-licking good luau."
