Jailbreak



What if you were an inmate in a prison, and you were hatin' life? You decide to make a break for it and try to enlist some of your buddies to join you in your great escape. But they aren't interested; they like the prison system and just want to change it a bit to better suit their needs. One of your friends thinks that the cafeteria should have a better selection of food; one thinks the gym should be open longer; another wants more books in the library. The inmates elected a new warden and replaced some corrupt guards, but strangely, their hoped-for change didn't happen. You try to explain to your fellow prisoners about the animating contest of freedom, but the homeboys ain't buying it--no, no, too scary, they're used to the "services" that the prison provides. Is everyone here insane, you wonder. You feel lonelier than ever.

  1. A damn appropriate analogy! Now you got AC/DC "74 Jailbreak" playing in my head...

  2. Hi Mayberry,

    After you mentioned AC/DC's song, I got Thin Lizzy's "Jailbreak" stuck in my noodle.
