a motif of folk tales, popularized in europe but pre-dating possibly to vedic texts and others,where-in a wealthy person pays for the proper burial of some unfortunate deceased. the spirit of the deceased then repays the wealthy person somehow. a rock band also named themselves after this

1. The one and only band you need to be aware of.

2. An alcoholic drink. Typically made like this: fill a pint glass with ice. Add 1/2 oz of the following: vodka, gin, light rum and tequila. Fill almost to the top with either sour or sweet & sour mix. Shake or stir vigorously if no shaker is available. Add straw and drink. Bartenders will typically leave more space than usual when adding sour or sweet & sour mix and will top with equal parts of Chambord/razzmatazz and Blue Curacao to create a color effect for presentation. No matter which way you make it this drink NEVER gets any kind of garnish unless specifically requested by a customer.

When a man dies in the a 69 position, on top of his partner, and defecates on said partner's face.
I'm sad Bob's gone, but at least his final act was to give me a Grateful Dead.

The band that put 250,000 people to sleep at Woodstock in 1969.
John Fogerty in a Rolling Stone interview: "Creedence had to follow the Grateful Dead. I was like, 'Great, we get to follow the band that just put 250,000 people to sleep. I remember seeing one guy a quarter mile away from the stage with a lighter yelling, 'We're with you, John' so I played our set for that guy."

The dance you do when you're stoned.

Goes a little something like this:

You wave your arms about whilst skipping in a small circle. Making odd noises is optional.
Shaniqua: Hey baby wanna dirty dance with me?
Me: Nah, watch me freestyle doing the grateful dead!
