"the couch...died." -jon stewart
The Couch has passed on. The Couch is no more! It has ceased to be! It's expired and gone to meet it's maker! It's a stiff! Bereft of life it rests in peace! If it hadn't been nailed to the stage it would be pushing up the daisies! It's metabolic processes are now history! It's off the twig! It's kicked the bucket, shuffled off it's mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-COUCH!
