"You shouldn't kick it, it might not be dead."

"The signs seem to run contrary to that belief."

"Are you a doctor now, or perhaps a coroner instead?

"I won't touch it again if it'll give you relief."

"Should we call someone, at least to move it out of the road?"

"I think we should leave it for the crows."

"It does look an awfully heavy load."

"Plus, it could be carrying something, who knows?"

"Drive as fast away from it as you did into it, please."

"I have no intention to loiter."

"Do you think there are more, perhaps hiding in the trees?"

"Should I stop so you can reconnoiter?"

"Oh dear, no. Drive on."

"Let's just drop it altogether."

"Not to be picked up anon."

"Exactly, now how about this weather."
