"Skid Marked", Way to Die #419, is the seventh and final death to be featured in "Eat, Pray, Die", which aired on August 8, 2011.


A group of car thieves are practicing "ghost riding the whip" (putting the car into gear and dancing alongside it) with a stolen SUV. Two of the thieves' names are Eddie and Nick. Nick attempts "The Circle," which involves making the car ride in a tight circle while standing atop it. The SUV hits a parking chalk, knocking Nick from the roof of the SUV. While on the ground, the SUV comes around and runs over and breaks both of Nick's legs. The SUV then comes around another time, but this time runs over his entire body, and crushes his head and his brain, killing him, much to the horror of Eddie and his three pals.
