@tsarstepan,
A sky-told fate, infinite in reach, dooms all. Very Happy

Commies in China would always like to say "Visiting Marx." Laughing

@oristarA,
I like those Buddhaesque (?) euphemisms.

Commies in China would always like to say "Visiting Marx."
Is quite funny because I bet it's said so earnestly.

If so, then it is hypocrisy,
because commies r MATERIALISTS!

@OmSigDAVID,
It's funny because they're supposed to be die hard atheists.

Yes; that 's taken together with their materialism.
Their revolution in 1917 was against both the Czar & the Russian Church.

"Pushing up Daisies" is kind of nice. At least it is beneficial...and daisies are such comforting happy flowers.

It seems the opposite is true. During Great Leap woman even never-married girls were required bare to waist in heated field work in some communes for the purpose of "Running into Communist Society."

And there's the old verse-by-the-side-of-the-road signs:

Spring has sprung,
The grass has riz,
Where last year's
Careless drivers is.
Burma Shave.

Anyone under 60 will have absolutely no idea what that's all about.

Weekend Competition: Kicking the Bucket
This weekend, co-vocabularists are invited to propose favorite (or novel) euphemisms for death.

All of us, one day, will be pushing up the daisies or going to meet our maker and we might as well be euphemistic when we finally give up the ghost.

Funereal flowers will be awarded for the most curious and unusual offerings.

I submitted Dining out with maggots.


Here is a few more...

Bite the dust, walk the plank, blow out your candle. bite the bullet, take the plunge, go to hell, meet the devil, take your last breath...

Actually death is not as terrible as most think. When death is inevitable, there is no apprehension, no fear, no pain and the eerie realization that you are outside your body casually watching it happen. That was what happened to me several times, during falls, earthquakes, car crashes...

@Germlat,
While rewatching The Trip (2010) tonight, one euphemism I never heard before, "He's brown bread."

@tsarstepan,
OK, this is an old thread, but perhaps we are all old......

So I'm heading to the people farm for my dirt nap.
