super-stop-n-shop-jailbreak-shopping-cart

Last week, we told you that management at the Super Stop & Shop supermarket is asking shoppers to let them know if they’ve seen shopping carts that have been removed from their lot and left around the neighborhood.

It seems that the APB sign was the final straw for this cart, because one early morning before the store had opened, this shopping cart was seen running away. It was fast-creeping backward, keeping eyes out for early bird workers who are now on high alert for jail breaks and trying to avoid a bullet in .

You could almost hear the panic in the heavy breathing of this escapee, as he backs away from the supermarket prison he’s called home all the years of his life. So engrossed on chasing freedom without a bullet in his back – while making sure that no one was on his trail – he didn’t notice that he was being photographed. The dawn light of what normally would have been a slow, summer shopping day was just bright enough to avoid a camera flash. When security realizes there’s been an escape, the search will be on.

As he turned around and entered the crosswalk rolling like he never rolled before, he looked up at the dawn sky and started singing the 1976 AC/DC (or was it Thin Lizzy?) song, Jailbreak:

Gonna make a jailbreak
And I’m lookin’ towards the sky
I’m gonna make a jailbreak
Oh, how I wish that I could fly
All in the name of liberty
All in the name of liberty
Got to be free
Jailbreak, let me out of here

When security realizes there’s been an escape, the search will be on. In the meantime, this cart’s rolling toward freedom!

    These carts seem to have such a tendency to break loose and escape, I’m surprised evolution has not equipped them with the ability of self-propulsion. After all, without human assistance, the carts’ “great escape” is highly dependent on a strong breeze and/or a steep hill. From what I understand, the breakout carts usually make a run for it when the others are in the exercise yard rolling around in circles. Once they scale the prison wall, they have to survive the drop down the other side and pray they don’t break any wheels in the process. IF they make it that far, they have a good chance of reaching the streets, as is witnessed by this Shopping Cart Series.

    Oh, by the way, the lyrics you quoted were indeed AC/DC.
    Jailbreak by Thin Lizzy goes more like this:
    Tonight there’s gonna be a jailbreak
    Somewhere in this town
    See me and the boys we don’t like it
    So were getting up and going down
    Hiding low looking right to left
    If you see us coming I think it’s best
    To move away do you hear what I say
    From under my breath

    Thanks, Anthony, for clearing up the lyrics/artist question.
    SS&S; carts are equipped with a locking wheel mechanism, so this cart must have had some inside help.
