1000 Ways To Die Wiki

"Who Fart-dead?", Way to Die #325, is the second death featured in "Death, The New Black", which aired on July 18, 2011.


A group of sorority pledges enter a sauna contest, in which the one who can stay in the longest gets to skip Hell Week. Liz (Leah Lipovics), short for Elizabeth and also known as "Eliza-bitch", is a rich woman who was eating beans and broccoli for a week and has been giving herself severe gas. Her continuous farting forces the other three female pledges (Sara Sometti Michaels, Khanesha 'KJ' Smith, Violet Pino) to flee the sauna in disgust. The competition was down to Liz and Maria (Stephanie Rodriguez), an exchange student from Ecuador. Liz's final farting forces a stunned Maria to flee the sauna. Ten minutes later, furiously returning to the sauna, Maria confronts Liz, but she is shocked that Liz dies from dehydration, high body core temperature, and second/third-degree burns all over her body. Liz is now sent to hell, where she belongs.

"Eliza-bitch had 0 sympathy for her sorority sister. She dug down deep and squeezed out the biggest eruption since Mount St. Helens. Maria was powdered toast, but 10 minutes later, she ran back in to confront the human ass volcano...and Liz toppled over like a rotten pine."
