Humour in adversity

Seen on a plaque at South Wheal Francis, a ruined tin mine near me with partly preserved buildings. The subject was a boiler explosion in the late 1800s and the ensuing enquiry.
Board of Enquiry officer asks the engineman, "What steps did you take to avoid the explosion?"
The engineman replied, "Great big long ones, six at a time."
