"Snake du Jour", Way to Die #142, is the seventh death to be featured in "Death Watch", which aired on January 27, 2010.


Chef Wang is the head chef of an illegal underground restaurant. Why is it illegal? The foods he cook are made from endangered and protected animals. He told his assistant that his tonight's cooking/dish is a king cobra. However, the snake managed to get out of the metal cooking pot it was in when it accidentally fell off the counter. He crawls on the floor and tried to capture the angry venomous snake. While attempting to catch it by charming it in order to get his attention, the angry venomous snake bites him by the face through his skull, leaving Chef Wang screaming in pain. His assistant is left completely horrified to see the snake infection across his face, which looks like a snake, and he dies while in a coma.

"Before Chef Wang had a chance to cut into his cobra, it got loose..."
