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

@McLerristarr: It's probably on par with "shit." Far from polite, but they say it on TV these days.

@burritez I would hardly say it's on par with "shit" Shit gets censored at least some of the time. I have never heard anyone bleep out the word tits

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

bullet is more a term for doing something unpleasant. But I like "Bite the big one." I think that fits perfectly

"Bite the bullet" refers to doing something you'd rather not...toughing it out. Refers to the custom of biting on a lead bullet while the field surgeon tended to your battle wounds.

"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.

Yeah, what both guys said. I thought bite the bullet referred to giving a patient a bullet to bite on while someone did a painful procedure such as digging out shrapnel or a bullet. It came to mean facing up to something unpleasant in order to get it over with.

Don't worry, kick the can is not correct. It's a misapplication of "having another kick at the can" which just means trying again.

I think the QM's acceptance of the rude going ____ up should be rescinded. Like Bite the Bullet, it doesn't really mean dying, in this case it just means going catastrophically wrong.

How is "It ain't over till the fat lady sings" a cliché about death? The fat lady sings at the opera, not at a funeral. This expression just means that it's not over until it's over.
