Real-Life Cartoon Jailbreak Involved Bedsheet Rope

The rope made out of tied-together bedsheets is by far the craziest thing about two inmates’ escape from a Chicago jail on Tuesday, especially since they used it to descend fifteen stories. But the most unbelievable thing is not that bit of death defiance, but rather the fact that the two men apparently shimmied through their six-inch-wide window in order to get out. The New York Daily News reports police are still trying to figure out how they got through, but from the picture it sort of looks like they somehow widened the opening a bit. Anyway, it should be obvious but if you run into escaped convicted bank robbers Joseph Banks, 37, and Kenneth Conley, 38, you should give them a wide berth because they are clearly crazy, and possibly superhuman.
