In '50's StL, this was used in the local BE only in the imperative. "Drop
down and chop!" was/is? a member of the set of "dismissives" that includes
_fuck you!_, _kiss my ass!_, _shit on you!_ et sim.

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
