** Gunther in Info-Pain-Ment. sure he yells and screams at his two friends, but they were more interested in fooling around than helping him. And one of them even end up killing him when he used one of Gunther's contraptions in a wrong way. But bamboo-spike in ear seem a bit harsh for Gunther.

** "Lac-Tosted:" A trenchcoat-clad flasher named Gordon exposes himself to three moms (who are actually members of a local fight club called "M.I.L.F" -- "Moms I'd Like to Fight") out on a walk with their babies, who proceed to [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown beat the crap out of him]]. The beating left him bloody, but not dead. What killed him was his drinking of the moms' bottles of breast milk, which had traces of proteins from peanuts, and the flasher learned too late that he was deathly allergic to them.

Whereas Tyrone stands his ground and opens fire on the responding officers, his partner Eddie immediately hides in the truck. He then peeks out through the rear doors, just as one of the cops' bullets strikes Tyrone in the chest and causes him to slam into the doors - crushing Eddie's neck between them. Tyrone survived thanks to a bulletproof vest but got life in prison; Eddie, obviously, [[LaserGuidedKarma died almost instantly.]]

* KarmaHoudini: In a show that tries to give victims what they deserve they have a few but still surprising amount of these ** The robber in "Chucked Up": a naughty-minded housewife [[BoundAndGagged ties herself up]] for her webcam watching husband. A masked thief breaks in, robs the woman blind, then gets in her face and thanks her for making the job easy. The woman dies of drowning on her own vomit (since the thief's breath was so bad, it caused her to puke and she couldn't do it with duct tape around her mouth). As for the thief, well...he just gets away.

** In "Heim-Licked," an aggro weight-loss boot camp manager meets his new overweight student. Not legally allowed to kick her out (as she'll sue him for sexual discrimination), he decides to humiliate her instead. When When she quits the course out of frustration, her secret stash of snack cakes falls out and the boot camp manager humiliates her even further by taking one of her snack cakes and eating it while mocking her with his mouth full. Not surprisingly, he chokes on the snack cake. However, he dies when he attempts to perform the Heimlich maneuver on himself using a yoga ball, bounces off it, and lands mouth first on a sprinkler, breaking his C2 and C3 vertebrae.

* BigRedButton: The victim of "Sex Ray" dies because the backside of one of the two technicians who were making out kept hitting the 'ON' Button for the X-Ray * BittersweetEnding: "Ichiboned": a Japanese couple, married seven years, have never had sex as they are too repressed. One night, the husband brings home a bottle of plum wine, split it, and finally make love...only to die from simultaneous heart attacks, as their bodies weren't used to the effects of an orgasm (especially one that comes from years of repressing any and all sexual urges and desires). Even the narrator admits it's a better way to go than most of the alternatives, and is rated the #1 death. ** "Premature Endings," at the other end of the list (#1000), also qualifies. After walking through an emergency room full of people who have suffered bizarre (and presumably fatal) injuries due to their own stupidity, a woman goes to her elderly father's hospital room to visit him one last time before he dies peacefully of natural causes. The narrator comments that the show is like an instruction manual: you can do something dumb and end up as one of its stories, or you can live a sensible life and just watch it. One can argue that this one goes all the way to EarnYourHappyEnding: all humans eventually ''die'', but the man who died in this one had lived a decent life, was loved by his family and friends, and avoided [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy drunken stupidity]], [[AssholeVictim the business end of]] [[KarmicDeath karma's sword]], and [[TooDumbToLive all the]] [[WhatAnIdiot other pitfalls]] [[HoistByHisOwnPetard common to]] [[EpicFail this show's]] [[UndignifiedDeath cases]]. For that, he got to die a peaceful death with his beloved daughter at his side instead of being, say, [[StuffBlowingUp caught in an explosion]] or [[GaiasVengeance mauled by wild animals]] or [[AssShove torn a new asshole]]. And for a mortal race, can a natural death surrounded by loved ones be a happier ending? ** "Radium Girls" had many 1920s female watch workers die of radiation poisoning after their employer required them to ingest the radium paint they used. (They were painting glow-in-the-dark radium compounds onto watch hands and faces, a task which requires very fine-pointed brushes, and were advised by management to re-point the bristles with their lips when necessary.) This resulted in the "Radium Girls" lawsuit, which produced safer working conditions in watch-painting factories, but didn't do much to help those who had already succumbed to cancers of the face and jaw.

* BlondeRepublicanSexKitten: The drunken bachelorette who broke her neck after a pigeon flew in her mouth. Said to normally be an abstemious Tea Party supporter (who planned on getting wasted on champagne and only champagne), but someone gave her absinthe and she went nuts. Also fake as absinthe was proven harmless (well, besides for the high alcohol content) after the turn of the millennia. * BloodFromEveryOrifice: "Ex-Squeezed" the narrator even points this out

* BrownNote: An iDoser (a drug dealer {of sorts} who uses special mp3s that can create hallucinogenic effects when listened) creates a low-frequency sound called "Satan's Jackhammer," which first makes him [[PottyFailure wet and soil his pants]], then makes his cells pop and his organs suffer catastrophic failure.

** Rubbed Out had a germophobe filling a bath tub with concentrated alcohol and ''bathed in it'' after being vomited on by a homeless person. Let's just say that ingestion isn't the only way taking alcohol.
