Rehabilitation Filipino Style

Prison officials at the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Cebu, Philippines have figured out a way to keep inmates busy - stage mass productions of Michael Jackson's legendary 1983 music video "Thriller."

The production complete with a drag queen version of "Thriller's" femme fatale and former Playboy playmate Ola Ray has hundreds of orange jumpsuit clad prisoners choreographed down to Michael Jackson's every move.

Perhaps this could be tried at San Quentin.

You have a real mean streak, Mayor.

Do you think the inmates are doing this for fun? What a keen imagination you have.

Otherwise... you're something of a sadist to cheer this on, even in jest. Read a little more about the prison, and its corrupt warden.

Or maybe you have -- and this is all just a bit of fun for you?

Get a life clown. CNN showed this too. Jail is not for fun.

It's for punishment.

What about what those prisoners did their victims.

Speaking of prisons, why is it that in the prisons where we house the most violent criminals, we allow them time to workout with weights?

How smart is it to use the taxpayers' money to allow the biggest and meanest criminals to get even bigger and stronger?

Perhaps this could be tried with City Council Puppets.

Some people need to relax, most people looking at this video of prisoners dancing to Thrilller are going to see the humor in that video.

I don't think anybody is trying to make some great social commentary, people it's a joke.

I guess some people never watch Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, David Letterman and etc.

And in private, do they dance "The Full Monty?"

Bill Maher and David Letterman have also had real prisoners on the show being forced to dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller, in full costume?

Now, that really is a scary thought.

Joan Rivers complains that she can't get booked on those late night talks especially Leno, ever since she went up against the boys and her her own show. Say, what if she got together a nice group from San Quentin and dressed them up in Michael Jackson drag and made them dance and sing? She'd be just the one for the job and it would boost her career like gangbusters. Pardon the pun.

And no more weights! If they're going to act like pansies might as well make them look like them. Bet it will cut down on recidivism, too.

Nice idea, but sorry to say Mayor it probably wouldn't work at San Quentin. The bulky CA prisoners aren't quite that lithe and light on their feet. Though having to listen to Thriller for all those rehersals could be considered punishment enough.

Maybe the Filipinos have a great idea. What the prisoners want is to be able to spend their time bulking up so when they get out it's easier for them to beat the crap out of us. And it's a macho thing. So make them do what they don't want to do. Put them in dresses, tights, or tu-tus and make them dance around while they're being taped. Post the tape on YouTube with their names in the captions.

Hey mayor, this has been floating around the internet for over a month. Do you need someone that can get the fresh stuff for you?
