Why is it that the words “jail break” are almost invariably modified by the adjective “daring”? Surely there must be some prison escapes that are thrilling, bizarre, or poorly planned? Well, journalists describing the latest jail break to grab headlines might perhaps want to use the words “inspired by a porn movie.” (What would the adjective be? Pornolicious? Pornired?) Female prisoners in Brazil staged an escape from Nova Mutum Prison after seducing and drugging several guards. “The women lured the guards into their cell in skin-tight vinyl lingerie and the promise of an ‘orgy’,” reports entertainment.ie.”The guards were then offered drink spiked with drugs that rendered them unconscious almost immediately.”
The women then took the guards’ keys, unlocked all the cells in the block, and stole weapons before leaving the prison. So far eight of the women have been recaptured. As for the guards who were, er, sleeping on the job. They have been charged with “culpable embezzlement” (which I guess is legalese for “you have got to be kidding me!”).
