Subject: #1786 Jailbreak Thelma and Louise Message-ID: <email@example.com> From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Fred Perry) Date: 12 Sep 1995 16:28:01 GMT
Just got two of the Jailbreak Joe sets on sale at Target and decided that the female minifigs had had enough. I exchanged the two male heads and replaced them with two female heads with brown hippie hair and red ponytail. Vioila! Thelma and Louise live!
! ! ! NEWSBREAK ! ! !
While being moved to the maximum security cell at Central Precinct HQ the duo made a daring jailbreak and are currently terrorizing all the male citizens of Legoland. They have even gone so far as to hold the entire precinct police force at bay while searching for any other female prisoners. They only found Joe and upon discovering he was in jail for embezelling funds from his employer to run away with his secretary (thus deserting his devoted wife of twelve years) they decided to let him stay there. They are currently considered armed and dangerous after robbing a local antique weapons collector. Police believe them to be traveling in a stolen black convertible, taken from the poolside estate of L.G. O'Builder in the exclusive resort of Paradisa Beach. The female dispatcher of the fire department has recently been deputized in an effort to find someone that can communicate with the two on a more personal level but the police Chief doesn't expect much to come out of the effort. While robbing a couple of fisherman up at Rocky River the couple complained that they were "sick of living in a world dominated by males" and "tired of being just a cute accessory to men". They were also quoted as saying "we won't stop until the females of Legoland are equal to the men". The mayor and city council are desperately trying to contact President Bill Lund in an effort to see what can be done about this situation. Upon getting through to the Oval office they were told by Mrs. Lund that the President was unavailable at the time as he was presiding over the dedication of a new Juicy Burger in his honor. In the meantime, a nation waits.
( Thanks to whoever came up with the name 'Juicy Burger' )
