Written by Old Bluffer 2nd Jun 2005

An elegantly executed murder by a waiter who has had enough of his greediest and most obnoxious customer.
This death also tastefully shows the wider social effects of overeating. Eyewitnesses are traumatised for life, carpets are ruined and waitresses get vomited on. They should run this sketch on public access channels in states like Indiana.


Mr Creosote clears out his system to make room for a nice wholesome meal.


Conclusive proof that fresh fruit isn't as healthy as we've been led to believe.


The "waffer thin mint" of death - "Bon Appetit!"


It seems Mr Creosote had a slight case of intestinal gas after his meal. John Cleese still presents him with the bill though!

While overeating probably won't result in death by explosion for you there are still health concerns to be aware of when it comes to your diet. There is plenty of health information out there concerning the medical ramifications of nutrition, so if you want to know more about the medical symptoms of obesity then searching online may bear some fruit.

But it was only a waifer-thin mint!

Has anyone ever seen those Mr. Creosote figures at Media Play and the like? The ones where you squeeze his stomach and he vomits this green gak over and over again? Nine bucks, baby. And the packaging is rife with Monty Python comedy gold as well.

No, and now my life will not be complete until I possess one sad smiley.

Look for one on ebay. I'm sure you can get one pretty cheap.

Now that I've done the screengrabs for this death, I noticed that John Cleese reaches into Mr Creosote's exposed rib cage, delicately plucks the infamous undigested mint from its slimy resting place and then eats it himself! :hungry:

Wouldn't he know he was about to explode?
Comment 7 by 'Mr. Briggs Incorporated' (reply to this comment)
It didn't look like tubby really cared about that!

Sorry to spoil th fun, but I don't think Mr. Creosote dies after his explosion. He is clearly seen moving his eyes as the waiter brings him the check.
Comment 9 by 'old bluffer' (reply to this comment)
Thanks, we didn't have offscreen-killing as a category when we added this scene.
It definitely applies though. After his entire chestal cavity explodes, old Creosote will soon be propping up the daisies and singing with the choir invisible. In short, he will be an ex-fatty.
