1000 Ways to Die - Tongue Tied

The death.


A huge group of rich 20 year-olds wasted their trust funds on fashion items and muscle cars. Mike and Jade were the most extreme of the bunch, who had piercings on almost every part of their body. Jade wanted to show off her new tongue piercing: a slave ring. Mike and Jade began kissing in opposite cars while the rest drove the cars and watched. They would stop kissing when they came close to a stationery object. Eventually, they would come across a forklift. When they were nearing it, Mike and Jade attempted to stop kissing, but their tongues were literally tied and they were stuck kissing due to Mike's standard ball piercing getting entangled in Jade's slave ring. The cars were going too fast to stop, and the two forks of the forklift cleanly decapitated Mike and Jade. Jade's friend soon stopped and got out of her car and started crying upon seeing Jade and Mike's headless bodies and decapitated heads.

"They thought they'd christen the new piercing with a stunt they called 'the kiss of death'. The two lovers remained lip locked until a last possible moment when the cars would pull away to avoid a stationary object, in this case, a slow moving forklift. The stunt would've worked, except Mike and Jade suddenly found themselves...tongue tied."
