"This Just In...My Chest", Way to Die #700, is the sixth death to be featured in "Grave Decisions: The Halloween Episode", which aired on October 31, 2011.


Joe (David Imani) was a wannabe news reporter who only cares about his looks. On camera, he seems the part, but as we know, the camera may not lie, but the guy in front of it sure as hell can. On camera, he seems to care about a report about someone abducting a seeing-eye dog, but really, all he cares about is his hair. When he hears about a hurricane, he sees it as a chance to advance his career, so he and his crew rush over. When he's there, he tries to act like he's Mr. Brave, but still, all he can care about is his hair, so he does not notice a mailbox snap off and fly, stake-first, into his chest, impaling his heart.

"Within hours of the initial reports, the hurricane made landfall, and Joe could just feel that national news anchor job blowing his way. Joe made it seem like he was brave for covering this massive storm. But in the end...he couldn't even stick it out."
