1000 Ways To Die Wiki


"Wrin-killed", Way to Die #235, is the third death to be featured in "Dead to Rights", which aired on February 17, 2010.


Granny is walking down the street. It's a picture of tranquility until a thief tries to snatch her purse. But don't be fooled by her looks. Granny may be 74, but she had over 30 years of experience with Tae Kwon Do. She managed to hold onto her purse very tightly that the thief lost his grip and stumbled. She hands her purse to a female pedestrian and starts beating him up. The passersby were very amused with her skills that they cheered her on. Finally, Granny delivered a killing blow by punching the thief in the throat, crushing his windpipe in the process and sending him to Hell where he belongs.

"The thief's got no problem hitting a sweet old lady. He lands some vicious blows, but that only lights Granny's fuse. It was time to wrap it up. Granny had a date with a dialysis machine. She delivers the grandmother of all punches...right to his throat."
