do a Reggie Perrin
To fake ones own suicide.

Anyway, I went to Weymouth Yesterday,<![sic] capitalisation of Yesterday and sat on the beach thinking I could do a Reggie Perrin, so I took off all my clothes, and ran into the sea. I had planned to fake my own death, but for those of you who dont know, Weymouths beach is a tad shallow, and is so for a considerable distance, well I ran as far as I could before my gonads rested in my throat cos of the cold and decided...THERE HAS TO BE MORE TO LIFE THAN THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<![sic] source does use 15 exclamation marks!
