One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate.
He asked one man, 'Why are you eating grass?'
'We don't have any money for food,' the poor man replied. 'We have to eat grass.'
'Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you,' the lawyer said.
'But sir, I have a wife and two children with me. They are over there, under that tree.'
'Bring them along,' the lawyer replied. Turning to the other poor man he stated, 'You come with us, also..'
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, 'But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me!'
'Bring them all, as well,' the lawyer answered
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was.
Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, 'Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.'
The lawyer replied, 'Glad to do it. You'll really love my place.. The grass is almost a foot high.' 
Newspaper clipping
A grandmother had had 'DO NOT RESUSCITATE' tattooed on her chest to ensure doctors do not revive her if she falls seriously ill. And just in case Joy Tomkins is slumped on her front when disaster strikes, she has had 'PTO' tattooed on her back. 
"When my time comes, I don't want to end up half dead" said Tomkins, 81, of Downham Market. "I want to be fully dead."
