Death frowned across the body.

“Dean,” he admonished, “could you try not to keep dying of food related disorders? I don’t appreciate bending the rules, even if the universe needs you. This is becoming a nuisance.”

Dean curbed the impulse to ask ‘Was it the salmon mousse?’ That might prove – permanently – fatal.

Instead he confessed, “Sam’s always saying to cut down on junk. But it tastes so good. You know how it is.”

Death sighed. “I know, but there is such a thing as moderation. Try dieting; it might enhance the occasional indulgence.”

Surprisingly, Sam died next; choking on peanuts.
