Hysterical History

 

England is an old small country.  Soon they started to run out of places to bury their dead. So they would dig up coffins and take the bones to a bone yard and reuse the grave. When the coffins were opened 1 out of 25 had scratch marks on the inside and they realized people had been buried alive. So they would tie a string around the wrist of the corpse, thread it through the ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would sit at the grave site all night (the graveyard shift) to listen for the bell, thus someone was “saved by the bell” or was considered a “dead ringer!’
