Dear teachers,

I am confusing about the meaning of "bite the big burrito" in these sentenses:

A: One of my followers, Nick, he bit the big burrito last night
B: He died? How?
A: He was hit by a bus.

I think "bit the big burrito" here can't normally mean that he ate a big tortilla :), 'cause B immediately said that Nick died already.

Please clear the meaning for me, and explain why ;-)

Thanks so much!

This is a colloquial expression meaning that someone has died, Another expression also meaning this is:

He kicked the bucket.
and also:
keeled over
croaked
met his maker
faced the final curtain


When someone has died and has been buried, an expression is:

He's pushing up daisies

Can other posters think of more expressions like these?; and of the type:
gone to that great (word to be chosen by speaker) in the sky.

NOTE: These idioms are flippant and should not be used when talking to a bereaved family.

Meet your Maker
If someone has gone to meet their Maker, they have died.
Bite the dust
This is a way of saying that somebody has died, especially if they are killed violently like a soldier in battle.
