Cliché: dig yourself into a hole

Meaning: create deep trouble for yourself. Use examples.
Rewrite 1: dig yourself into a
mound2 of trouble
Rewrite 2: dig a hole under yourself
Rewrite 3: bury yourself in a hole
Rewrite 4: dig a hole and trap yourself inside

Comment: These are disturbing thoughts, but perhaps
apropos for the metaphor.
