    AND, not OR. A corpse ditched in a garbage tip and covered with six feet of rubbish wouldn't be six feet under.

    Hi, Bob! Although, not considered a proper or legal burial, a corpse ditched in a garbage dump and covered with six feet of rubbish is still technically 'six feet under'! If there is a 'cover' there must be an 'under'.

    Have a great weekend!
