deep sixed, croaked, kicked the bucket, bought the farm, playing a harp, the long sleep, pushing daisys, feeding worms, went to meet st peter, passed away, passed on, passed expiry, sent to the glue factory, bought it, caught it, got it in the neck, sent to hell, went to heaven, met the reaper, making a bad smell, flying a cloud, making the grass grow, fertiliser

This sounds like the lead in to the dead parrot sketch from Monty Python!

Snuffed, snuffed-it,
kicked the bucket,
Moved into that narrow underground apartment,
took the dirt nap,
six feet under,
bought the farm,
taking the big sleep,
forget about him,
aahh, you won't see him 'round no more!,
Greased,
rubbed-out,
offed,
gone to his reward,
sleeps with da fishes,
capped,
wormfood,
shanked,
punched his ticket,
planted.

It seems to have slowed down a bit...
Perhaps I can kickstart it with these:

1 retroactive abortion
2 mortally challenged
3 negative patient outcome
4 flatlined
5 failure to meet his wellness surplus
6 assumed room temperature
7 parked his car in the gargoyle garage
8 go dancing at a necktie party
9 whacked
10 toasted
11 15 minutes of flame
12 Adios Park
13 playing the bone park
15 basting the formaldhyde turkey
16 entered Frankensteins workshop
17 fossil farm
18 give up the ghost
19 for whom the bell tolls

A good one nonetheless Ex...Its always a good idea to keep an obolos on hand just in case you get hit by a bus ad find yourself at the turnstiles at the Styx river ferry station with Charon refusing to punch your ticket because you havent got the fare....

What the F#*& is an obolos you ask ....its a an ancient Greek coin of the lowest denominination....that is placed under the tongue when you die to pay Charon the ferryman. Although in this Global economy he isnt taking Greek coins (or Portugese or Spanish and he has been known to question the US buck lately!!

As well as an obolos (or equivalent coin) my mum said I should always wear clean undies just in case I get hit by a bus and need to go to hospital.....I figured if I see the bus coming my undies are not going to remain clean long !!!

Basting the formaldehyde turkey? I was trying to work formaldehyde in there somehow but wow. How about doing the formaldehyde foxtrot? The terminal two-step? Bezelbubs boogie?

I figure if one was hit by a bus one would void their bowels on impact making the need for clean underwear superflous. In fact any underwear at that point would be surplus to requirement.

Daisy was my ex-colleague. If I smell her by roots, God save me.

I think if you check that is precisely my point D. How does that saying go...Imitation is the greatest form of flattery....(laughs)

BTW I was a bit leary of using the basting the turkey one cos as you probably know it has been used as a rather graphic euphemism for (clears throat) masturbation. But it was too good to pass up. I like the Terminal Tango and Belzebubs Boogie...yours? clever...Applause

Too much on DEATH!!!
Gone to meet his Maker
Passed away
Gone to the other side

It's amazing that there are so euphamisms for death when death is considered "THE END".
