Living in the western world, we are lucky enough to be able (in some cases) to freely speak our minds. However, we cannot take for granted the medium of humor as a way to convey information that may be politically dangerous.

    They prefer "expired" or "departed" instead.

    Like "biting the dust" or "buying the farm."
