Moondyne Joe

Moondyne Joe

Having come across a photo of Moondyne Joe I can't resist sharing the amazing fact that this Australian bushranger escaped from our local (and later, high security) prison with the use of a spoon!

Yup, spoon. The limestone in our region is so soft a spoon can literally dig an escape tunnel--and we built a prison out of it -- two prisons in fact.
