Your fave is problematic: the parrot what I purchased not half an hour ago


  • is not resting
  • did not move
  • is not stunned
  • is not pining for the fjords
  • has passed on
  • is no more
  • has ceased to be
  • has expired and gone to meet his maker
  • is stiff
  • is bereft of life
  • rests in peace
  • would be pushing up daisies if he weren’t nailed to the perch
  • his metabolic processes are now history
  • is off the twig
  • has kicked the bucket
  • has shuffled off his mortal coil
  • has run down the curtain and joined the bleeding choir invisible
