Just Because It Tickled My Funny Bone

Read down a few lines:

Vatican City, Nov 11 - The legacy of Pope John Pail II "includes, among various examples, a shining attitude towards prayer. We now pick up his spiritual heritage under the guidance of his heavenly intercession," said today Pope Benedict XVI during a sermon to celebrate late cardinals and bishops. "Over the last 12 months," said the current Pope, "we have had five revered cardinals who kicked the bucket: Juan Carlos Aramburu, Jan Pieter Schotte, Corrado Bafile, Jaime Sin and, less than a month ago, Giuseppe Caprio. We entrust their souls and those of the Archbishops and Bishops who passed away recently to God."

"Kicked the bucket?"

He really said that, or was that particular colloquialism added by a translator?
