This is a picture of our neighbourhood jail.
True as true. Would I lie about the criminal justice system?
Isn’t it just the cutest jail you’ve ever seen? Kind of makes you want to commit a crime just for the opportunity to stay awhile. (A short while.)
And while you’re serving your time, you could do a little decorating – some window treatments, landscaping, perhaps a white picket fence… Looks like the roof could use some work, too. Get those inmates to work!
Okay, reality check. This quaint jail no longer exists. The picture was taken circa 1955.
Our neighbourhood criminals have graduated to THE BIG HOUSE.
Mercy me, how times have changed.
