Ok then ,how many ways can we say dead?

My contribution:

Taking a dirt nap.

Yours truly,

Kicking the oxygen habit.


Pushing up daisies.

Bought a farm.

Dropped off the twig.

Expire like a magazine subscription

Anyone else have the Month Python ‘Parrot’ skit running through their head now? I know I do.

This parrot is no more! He has ceased to be! He has expired and gone to meet his maker! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, he rests in peace! If he hadn’t fallen off the perch he would be pushing up the daisies! This is an ex-parrot!

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

From the British and Commonwealth military of the First World War:

“Gone West” (interesting posible mytholigical connections?);

“Become a landowner in France” (i.e. six feet of it);

“Napoo” (Tommy’s pidgin French [N’en plus, or “there is no more”] applied equally to jam, booze or an individual);

“Had his number on it” (ref. the legendary bullet or shell);

From earlier Royal Naval times:

“Lost the number of his mess” (lower-deck usage c. 1800);

From WWII:

“Gone for a Burton” (RAF slang)

Way back when, I remember a Johnny Carson skit of a eulugy for an employee at Roget’s Thesaurus, he went on for about 5 minutes giving names for death. Unfortunately, it was a very long time ago, and I don’t remember all of them. The only two I do remember:

Doing the worm wave at stiff stadium
Taking a ride in the six handled sedan

Give me a while, I might be able to find them somewhere in internet land…


Nobody ever calls me after they’ve done something smart.

“My sister IS an enlisted man, sir” the chaplain replied.
