It's been a long time between drinks for Death of Insanely Overpowered Fireballs (currently demoted to Death of Being Poisoned By Licking A Giant Frog). I know many of you have been patiently waiting for his return.

Unfortunately it seems he currently has to compete not only with arch-rival Choking On A Giant Frog, but also Inhaling Hatmaking Chemicals and Wrestled To Death By Steve.

Deaths are like buses. Never one when you need one, until suddenly four show up at once.

2017-04-05 Rerun commentary: While the giant Nepalese poisonous mountain frog is fictional, there are indeed many species of frogs and toads to be found in Nepal.[1] None of them are commonly known as "mountain frogs", the closest being Nanorana parkeri, whose common names include High Himalaya frog and mountain slow frog. It's pretty sturdy, too, living at altitudes as high as 5000 metres, which is no mean feat. In fact the lowest elevation it is found is 2850 metres!

[1] This list also contains one caecilian and one newt as of when I looked at it.
