Rita Hayworth, indeed

Looks like some New Jersey jailers never watched “The Shawshank Redemption” or read Stephen King’s original novella — but I’m willing to bet the inmates had:

Authorities searched over the weekend for Jose Espinosa, who was awaiting sentencing for manslaughter, and Otis Blunt, who was facing robbery and other charges. They also launched a review of jail security…

The men helped cover up the break by placing dummies under their bed blankets, and hiding the wall holes with magazine photos of women in bikinis, authorities said.

OK, escaped criminals are not necessarily humorous, but… ..bruce w..

UPDATE #2: Here are more details about the escape, with photos.
