Bad ideas don't die
they just move to America. In the 1980s, citizens of the UK were issued with a helpful leaflet on what to do in the event of a nuclear war, called Protect and Survive, ie storm the local centre of government bunker to get somewhere safe, no, lie down and die with a label tied around your neck so the authorities (if any) can dispose of your remains (if any) efficiently. Now the USA has followed suit, expertly parodied at Don't feed the monkeys. Warning: this will make you laugh a lot.
