Being tidy

I was told yesterday of a letter which had appeared in the Daily Telegraph commenting on the pamphlet to be distributed by the government giving advice on how to keep safe in the event of a terrorist attack. This letter gave a 'Scouse' version. Basically, the advice was, when an attack happens, go and dig a long, very deep trench in the garden, lie down in it and cover yourself liberally with branches, leaves, anything to hand. Then wait.....
You won't survive, but it will leave everywhere nice and tidy and will relieve any survivors of the need to bury you!
Practical advice taken to the extreme? :)
