Man Dresses in Drag to Escape Prison, Actually Succeeds

Gotta admit, this is sort of creative: A man successfully escaped a Brazilian prison by dressing in his wife's clothing and merely walking past security guards. Though he was caught an hours later, the fact that he was able to waltz right out is pretty astonishing. Fail, Brazil.

The man, 39-year-old Ronaldo Silva, can be seen all dolled up in the picture above. According to the Huffington Post:

Silva, 39, allegedly shaved his arms and legs, dolled up his face and threw on a wig before waltzing out of Penedo prison, unnoticed by guards inside, the Mirror reported.

However, there's more to being a woman than a bra and panties. This guy couldn't carry himself in heels. A cop noticed Silva walking strangely less than an hour later on the street and collared him on the spot.

"He was wearing a wig, painted false nails and a long dress," Jail director Carlos Welber told The Sun. "He'd spent a long time shaving his legs and arms. There was a lot of preparation and premeditation involved in this."

Silva had been awaiting trial for drug trafficking when he asked his wife to smuggle in her clothing to the prison. Reportedly, she had "no idea why her hubby wanted to cross dress."
