Duck and Cover

This is what the government used to tell people in the 1950's about nuclear bombs. just wanted to let people know that.

There was a hilarious South Park(? I'm pretty sure it was South Park) episode a few years ago that made fun of this. A family was having a picnic on a mountainside, just like in this commercial, and the mountain just happened to be a volcano. It erupted and they figured if they ducked and covered, they'd be fine. Well of course the lava that came down upon them turned them into skeletons instantly. It was hilarious.

that was a great episode, and it's true that's what they thought would save them which is obviously crap.
