Hasn't Anyone Seen Shawshank?

So two prisoners escaped from a New Jersey jail by digging through the wall of the jail cell and then covering the hole with posters of scantily clad women. They left a note thanking a prison guard for the tools necessary to complete the daring escape. That prison guard then committed suicide before he could talk with authorities. One of the prisoners was caught in Mexico, hiding out in a $10 a day hotel.

How surreal is this?!? The only thing missing is that the two should be named Andy Dufresne and Ellis Redding and they both made it all the way to the Pacific. This has to be the weirdest story I've heard of in a long time. How could a jail facility not think to look behind posters? Hasn't everybody seen The Shawshank Redemption? I feel bad for the family and friends of the prison guard who took his own life, but this story is just way too strange in the way it coincides with one of the best movies of all time.

I read about this--crazy stuff, huh?

Christ, you would think that any time a prison guard saw a poster on the wall of a jail cell, he would check behind the damned thing every night because of that movie.

Your tax dollars at work, friends!
