One of two prisoners handcuffed together who ran either side of a lamp-post in an ill-conceived bid for freedom has pleaded guilty to trying to escape custody.

He had the collywobbles, apparently. His lawyer said so.

I think they should be let off this particular offense. They provided a great service by performing their stunt on video, thus brightening the lives of people all around the globe.

That has to count for something, surely.

Nerves, basically, causing an upset tummy. It's a lovely word.:-)
