Funny idea for a quiz. I could only think of the less proper alternative for belly up.

100% --- I am way too good at cliche.... (sigh) It took me a minute to get bite the dust, though. I kept trying bite the bullet.

I couldn't get dust. I went with "bullet" and "big one". Dust obviously works, but those are used too.

I've heard "gone teets (actually the less PC version) up" not "belly"

"Sleeps with the fishes" does not mean drowned, but disposed of in a body of water. That was Luca Brasi's fate: after being garroted, Sollozzo and Tattaglia saw that his body was dumped in the East River or some other nearby river or bay.

Except 'bite the bullet' doesn't really have to do with death. Surprised 'give up the ghost' is the least well known. Probably means I'm getting old...

^yeah, what this guy said. "Bite the bullet" means you get over your anxiety or you accept the consequence for something and find the nerve to do it. It has nothing to do with dying... unless maybe you were trying to find the nerve to shoot yourself. But usually it's not that literal.

Maybe "Give up the spirit" should be accepted as well?

Source? I can't find evidence on the interwebs that "kick the can" means to die.

Didn't anybody else also think of "Another one bites the dust"? That's the only reason I got the answer.
