But emergency services staff are concerned that those more selfish suicides are being treated with too much compassion, fuelling their 'Pay As You Pop Your Clogs' (PAYPYC) campaign.
PAYPYC organisers want the families of those who throw themselves off tall buildings to be charged for all associated costs of scraping their loved ones off the pavement.

A government spokesman who wished to remain anonymous said: "When my self-esteem takes a dive, I just tune in to The Jeremy Kyle Show.
"When you see the procession of feckless scum appearing there, you really will think that life's not all that bad," said the Lib Dem MP for Rockall South.
