  1. Going to croak, bite the dust,
    pushing up daisies,
    6 feet under,
    Breathing my last breath,
    on my last leg,

    The word “croak” is also used to describe the sound a frog or a toad makes… I believe the reason it’s also used as “to die” is to refer to the fact that sometimes people make that same sort of ragged breathing out sound when they die. I’m not sure!

  3. I feel like I’m gonna croak if I’m forced to control air-conditioning to save electricity right now. This expression is particularly applies to the devastated people cos of the radioactive accidents in Fukushima, the catastrophes in The East Japan.
