Subj: Ax Murderer Let Lose By Accident (S595c)
From: BoneheadOfTheDayAward on 6/15/2008
Quebec provincial police are
looking for Krysztof Masiak, 48,
a man who was diagnosed with paranoid-schizophrenia after
killing his nine-year-old daughter in 2001.
How did he "escape" from the Phillipe Pinel Institute in Montreal?
The hospital thought it would
be best for him (forget the
Canadians) to have a day out unsupervised.
He never returned.
The institutes' director, Dr.
Jocelyn Aubut, says it isn't
his fault, or anyone's fault at the institute. "We have a
psychiatrist, psychologist, a criminologist. There are some
special objectives tests which are passed. Every patient has
to go before a tribunal before we give them day passes."
There now? Don't you feel better?

Subj: Woman Plans Prison Break (S594c)
From: LABLaughsAdult on 5/28/2008
A pretty woman was serving a
life sentence in prison.
Angry and resentful about her situation, she had decided
that she would rather die than to live another year in
Over the years she had become
good friends with one of
the prison caretakers. His job, among others, was to
bury those prisoners who died in a graveyard just outside
the prison walls. When a prisoner died, the caretaker
rang a bell, which was heard by everyone. The caretaker
then got the body and put it in a casket. Next, he entered
his office to fill out the death certificate before
returning to the casket to nail the lid shut. Finally, he
put the casket on a wagon to take it to the graveyard and
Knowing this routine, the woman
devised an escape plan
and shared it with the caretaker. The next time the bell
rang, the woman would leave her cell and sneak into the
dark room where the coffins were kept. She would slip
into the coffin with the dead body while the caretaker
was filling out the death certificate. When the care-taker
returned, he would nail the lid shut and take the coffin
outside the prison with the woman in the coffin along
with the dead body. He would then bury the coffin. The
woman knew there would be enough air for her to breathe
until later in the evening when the caretaker would
return to the graveyard under the cover of darkness,
dig up the coffin, open it, and set her free.
The caretaker was reluctant to
go along with this plan,
but since he and the woman had become good friends over
the years, he agreed to do it.
The woman waited several weeks
before someone in the prison
died. She was asleep in her cell when she heard the death
bell ring. She got up and slowly walked down the hallway.
She was nearly caught a couple of times. Her heart was
beating fast. She opened the door to the darkened room
where the coffins were kept. Quietly in the dark, she
found the coffin that contained the dead body, carefully
climbed into the coffin and pulled the lid shut to wait
for the caretaker to come and nail the lid shut.
Soon she heard footsteps and
the pounding of the hammer
and nails. Even though she was very uncomfortable in
the coffin with the dead body, she knew that with each
nail she was one step closer to freedom. The coffin was
lifted onto the wagon and taken outside to the graveyard.
She could feel the coffin being lowered into the ground.
She didn't make a sound as the coffin hit the bottom of
the grave with a thud. Finally she heard the dirt
dropping onto the top of the wooden coffin, and she
knew that it was only a matter of time until she would
be free at last. After several minutes of absolute
silence, she began to laugh. She was free! She was free!
Feeling curious, she decided to light a match to find
out the identity of the dead prisoner beside her.
To her horror, she discovered
that she was lying next to
the dead caretaker.

Subj: Inmate Becomes A Carpenter (S286b)
From: Joke-Of-The-Day on 7/18/2002
Several years ago, Andy was sentenced
to prison. During
his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his
fellow inmates. The warden saw that deep down, Andy was
a good person and made arrangements for Andy to learn a
trade while doing his time.
After 3 years, Andy was recognized
as one of the best
carpenters in the local area. Often he would be given
a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the citizens of the
community, and he always reported back to prison before
Sunday night was over.
The warden was thinking of remodeling
his kitchen and
in fact had done much of the work himself. But he lacked
the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a
large counter top which he had promised his wife.
The Warden called Andy into his
office and asked him to
complete the job for him. But, alas, Andy refused. He
told the warden, ''Gosh, I'd really like to help you but
counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first
Subj: Escape Convict Breaks Into A House (S112, S473b)
From: RFSlick on 3/21/99
and From: DoctorDebt on 2/4/2006
An escaped convict, imprisoned
for 1st degree murder, had
spent 25 years of his life sentence in prison. While on the
run, he broke into a house and tied up a young couple who
had been sleeping in the bedroom. He tied the man to a chair
on one side of the room and his wife on the bed. He got on
the bed right over the woman, and it appeared he was kissing
Suddenly he got up and left the room.
As soon as possible the husband
made his way across the room
to his bride, his chair in tow, and whispered, "Honey, this
guy hasn't seen a woman in years. I saw him kissing on your
neck and then he left in a hurry. Just cooperate and do
anything he wants. If he wants to have sex with you, just go
along with it and pretend you like it. Whatever you do do
not fight him or make him mad. Our lives depend on it! Be
strong and I love you."
After spitting out the gag in
her mouth, the half naked wife
says: "Dear, I'm so relieved you feel that way. You're right,
he hasn't seen a woman in years, but he wasn't kissing my neck.
He was whispering in my ear. He said he thinks you're really
cute and asked if we kept the Vaseline in the bathroom. Be
strong and I love you, too."

From: TNKRTEACH on 97-06-28
Three convicts were on the way to prison.
They were each
allowed to take one item with them to help them occupy their
time whilst stuck behind bars. On the bus, one turned to
another and said, "So, what did you bring?"

did you bring?"
The guy pulled out a box of tampons
and smiled. "I brought
The other two were puzzled and asked, "What can you do with those?"
