Heaps Upon Heaps

The Book of Judges tells us that Samson deployed the mandible of an equus asinus as a weapon to slay 1,000 men:
And he found a new jawbone of an ass, and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith. And Samson said, With the jawbone of an ass, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of an ass have I slain a thousand men. (Judges 15:15, 16)

One wonders the exact body count that Ed Iverson can boast.
