Biting ghosts and giving up the dust

A little day-after-Christmas present:

So Chuck says he plans to drive our old truck till it bites the ghost. Jason asked him if he meant till it gives up the dust?

So I found that one on the Internet a couple of times:

I have a new laptop as the other gave up the dust and wanted to sign in but all the passwords I am trying is saying that they are not working

That is, her granddaughter of the Lion King is out of here But Alice really doesn t want to give up the dust

[which pistol?] The Ruger will be here long after the S&W gives up the dust.

(I didn’t find any clear bite the ghost examples that didn’t seem advertent or meant literally.)

*If the human mind were simple enough for us to understand,
we would be too simple-minded to understand it* .

(Possible Corollary: it is, and we are .)
