Exciting new euphemisms for death, Part 48

"You mean, the ones that switched to DSL?" he wisecracked back.

"That's a hell of a euphemism ..." was the only thing I could say.

I've heard much worse ones. She failed to reboot. She installed Windows ME. Her anti-virus software was out of date. She was an open proxy.
