"Titty Titty Bang Bang", Way to Die #948, is the first death to be featured in "Death On Arrival", which aired on December 6, 2009.


Connie, a young woman, was a temp worker whose acting career went wrong. When she decided to become a stripper, she thought things would change, but she didn't have lumps as big as a usual stripper. She opened up the laptop, typed in "closest boob job in San Diego" and found a close doctor that specializes in surgery. The next day, she goes to the doctor's office, pays the super-duper expensive surgery and goes into his operating room. Connie asks the surgeon she wants "melons, gazongas, bonkers" and that she doesn't want to see her feet (in other words, the biggest breast implant). On the patient bed, Connie falls asleep for the operation, and the doctor starts working on her breasts. But then, it is revealed that the doctor used a pair of sub-standard implants, which were practically large water balloons, and stuffed them into Connie's body.

Two weeks later, Connie boards a plane to Las Vegas, Nevada while dressed up for her new stripper job. To go along with her bigger breasts, Connie had her hair & make up done, and even wore a mini-skirted blouse tight enough to show her perky chest and nipples sticking out. Every woman boarded on the plane is jealous of Connie's massive lumps and even one man's daughter snaps him out of looking at Connie's chest. Even one man sat behind Connie, put down her arm holder, and touched her breast - well, half of it. Connie noticed all the attention she attracts, which makes her smile. She loved how sexy she is and the new life her boobs would give her.

When the plane takes flight, Connie's chest feels irregular, because as it turns out, she's got what she paid for. She feels irregular, and it's getting worse. She starts screaming, and the compression gets higher, and the balloons get bigger. Connie was accused of having a bomb inside her chest, but she declined and said its just her boobs. Then after a little bit, everyone screams, and a lady points to Connie's chest. The bigger her chest grew, the more her blouse stretched and nipples grew. The stewardesses tried to help her while calming the passengers down, but there was nothing they could do. Connie cries out as when the plane hit 20,000 feet, her breasts explode, blood and flesh splashes out onto people's faces and bodies even for those who tried to avoid it with the other seats. Connie is shown lifeless sitting on her seat, head on her headrest, bloodied.
