@tsarstepan,
That's more of a rhyming slang threat than a euphemism.

@izzythepush,
I'll never understand Cockney rhyming slang.

@tsarstepan,
The rhyme isn't usually so obvious as bread/dead. Usually the rhyming part of the phrase is hidden. So much so that people use it without even knowing it's (rhyming) slang.

Butchers is a case in question, 'Let's have a butchers,' means 'Let me look at that.' The rhyming phrase is Butcher's hook - look, but the hook is dropped. It's meant to confuse, like a thief's cant.

@boomerang,
As I like classical literature, It seems to me ''Hamlet sleep" is one of the best.
