    Horrible, comedic deaths

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Normal, Feb 19, 2010.

    Sometimes I like to some old school brainstorming (even with a pen and paper!) so I make my little thought bubbles. What do you think would be the most horrible and comedic death possible for one of your characters.

    I was thinking somewhere along the lines of beaten to death with ping-pong balls. :D

    Inhaling helium from balloons on a train track... right before a train comes.

    Falling 20,000ft from an aircraft with no parachute into a tractor-trailer full of hay, then dying of a fatal bout of hay-fever.

    Kissing a bad breath man, going into coma, waking up to find the bad breath man in front, screaming and jumping out of the window and dying. :)


    P.S. The man was later arrested for manslaughter.

    Going to the hospital for a bad case of food poisoning, finding out you are going to die, getting a revolver, going up to the roof of the building, about to step off, then you get a call from the hospital, saying, "I am sorry, sir. We mixed your charts up with another patient. You are free to go today.", and slipping on some rocks and falling off the building.

    Run-on sentence! *gasp*

    Death by tickling-induced-hyperventilation while the airways are being slowly blocked up... upside down. Oh, did I mention that the person doing this to you is your 8th grade English teacher?

    Writer_of_Wrongs, that one made me crack up. Nice job.

    You're at the zoo, drunk, and you decide to climb up and balance at the top of the fence that separates you from the tiger pit. You throw things at the tigers and yell at them, causing the large, hungry cats to growl threateningly and surround the base of the fence below you. You try to do a tap dance and fail. You fall to your death, and the tigers eat you. The end.

    The tiger avatar gives it a nice touch. :)

    You are Criss Angel. You perform another stupid stunt by chaining your hands behind your back and keeping the key in your mouth. You brag to the people watching around you that you are going into a deep tank of water with chum attached to your legs. You also go on about how there are sharks locked at one end of the tank and you have 1 minute and 30 seconds to free yourself... or the sharks will be released.

    As soon as you get in the water... the key drops, sinks to the bottom, and you try not to look scared. 1 minute and 30 seconds go by.

    Sharks are released. You grab the key and unlock yourself and reach the top of the water with the sea creatures nipping at the fish guts attached to you. As soon as you get out of the tank, you are rewarded with a standing ovation as you proudly bow with the key sticking out of your mouth.

    You slip on the water. Key clings to the back of your throat. You choke and fall back into the tank.

    Pick your fate.

    You're at a comedy gig, right? And the guy on stage is notorious for the savagery with which he deals with hecklers. And that reputation has been confirmed before your very eyes because early on in the set some fella had left his seat right, and the comedian had gone, you know, brilliantly cuttingly : 'Sit down you fat bastard' and stuff along those sorta lines. So, of course, you daren't get up. But you're dying for a piss right? But you daren't get up. And, after a fashion, you know, your bladder sorta explodes and this ain't good and you kinda die from internal complications. Internal complications.

    You find yourself falling from the sky, when you spot Superman coming to rescue you. He dives under you and extends his arms.

    You are sliced into three equal pieces.

    After an extensive investigation, the forensic lab has reached the conclusion that it was all an accident.

    The victim entered the building to save his dog from the fire but, the moment he entered the dormitory, a beam fell from the roof, blocking his only exit. The victim lived in the fifth floor so jumping out of the window was too dangerous. Apparently he decided to tie all the clothes he could find, to make a rope and tie it to the bedpost. The process was long and the room was filling of smoke, so he could have been blind from that point on.

    He took off his own clothes, probably to use for the improvised rope and to cover his mouth. He must have tried to wet his mouth cloth but a tube of bathroom sealing silicone had exploded over the sink, because of the heat, and while he tried to get the water, he must have glued his own hands to the cloth.

    At that point, blinded by the smoke, almost unable to breathe and having lost the use of his hands, but safely tied to the bedpost by his improvised rope, he decided to jump out the window before the flames got to him. The problem was that the window was closed and he had to break it using his elbows and head. The time required to do so was sufficient for the flames to reach him and the pain must've made him jump through the partially broken glass, which unfortunately decapitated him.

    And that's the best explanation the chief forensic investigator could give to the firemen for why they found, hanging two meters from the ground, a headless nude man holding with both hands his own burning head.

    Mucking around in a lesson and being told to go and stand outside the classroom.

    The twist? It's a flying lesson.

    Beaten to death with a teaspoon.

    Imagine how many blows it will require, probably zillions.

    Winning the lottery after playing for days at the nickel slots, only to win and have the coins fly so hard out of the machine that they hit you in the eye so that you become temporarily blind. Someone then steals your money and in your panic you grab onto anything to try to stop the culprit. Thankfully, you regain your eyesight however die of a terrible sickness (e.coli) because you were stupid enough not to wash your hands.

    Ok I tried :D
