The Definitive Ranking Of Kenny McCormick's Deaths

103 deaths, only one winner.

No one's suffered more at the hands of South Park masochists Trey Parker and Matt Stone than poor Kenny McCormick (well, except Britney Spears. And Kanye. And Mel Gibson. But, moving on) and we thought it important to honour the poor lad in death as well as life. 

From getting full-on impaled by a boomerang to falling on a pile of rusty nails, Kenny's never had it easy - but goddamn, is his misfortune funny to watch. Check out our favourite deaths, ever:

Kyle's chainsaw takedown of Zombie Kenny is bloody, gory perfection. Hey, it had to be done to save the townspeople (and so he could come back as a zombie and we could see him die again).

8. When Stan and Kyle Combined Forces (Season 1, Episode 1)

His body gets whacked by Stan and he gets his head pulled off by Kyle. His body is then eaten by rats, after which, Kyle says "rats." Clever.

7. When Kenny Contracted Syphillis After Getting A Blowjob From Tammy Warner (Season 13, Episode 1)
