Cartoon Training for Jailers

See, banning violent cartoons only benefits the violent.

Read in the news a few days ago (see 2nd link) that a pair of murderers escaped from an Arkansas jail by cutting through the bars on the window with a pair of smuggled in hacksaw blades and climbing down with a pair of mattress covers tied together, secured inside the cell.

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???????? HAVE THE GUARDS AT THIS JAIL REALLY NEVER SEEN A SINGLE BUGS BUNNY CARTOON?????????

Well folks, that's the big idea. A new mandatory training curriculum for jailhouse guards that includes watching 4 hours of classic violent cartoons every day for 2 weeks.

Buleep badeep badeep, uh... that's all folks.

This one says they jumped from the 2nd story window, but the original article says they climbed out using tied-together mattress covers. [21 Quest, May 30 2012]

       No.
  

       Just the needed acme products alone would send my taxes through the roof.   

       You prefer having a pair of murderers on the loose? How much tax money do you suppose the ensuing regional manhunt is going to cost?

       Show them the Shawshank Redemption, The Wooden Horse, Great Escape... [-]

       Good idea, and would be better again if some characters dresses in cartoon costumes did live training, complete with sound effects... qua, qua, qau, qua, boinggggg! [+]

       Wouldn't the prisoners just paint a black circle on the wall and escape through that?

       Hah!

       Was the hacksaw smuggled in inside a cake? If so, then I agree...[+]

       Or a very heavy looking cake containing an anvil.

       Guard: "What have you put in the cake? Any hash, coke, speed, that sort of thing?"
Visitor: "Just an anvil."
Guard: "Oh, Advil... I guess that's all right then."

       Absinthe, those movies would certainly be good as part of the curriculum, but they won't hold folks' attention as long as cartoons.
