A Fhilipono Contractor is The First to Use His Own Cell
A Filipino steel worker was contracted by the police department to construct a steel cage detention cell. For three days, he worked on the project and was paid upon its completion. The police described the cell as “well done.” Pleased with his masterpiece and a few pesos richer, the man invited his friends to a few rounds of drinks which started at 4 p.m. Thursday and ended in the wee hours of the monning. The man who had built this nice detention cell, and threw a party with the money he made was staggering home when a police patrol chanced upon him. He was picked up and detained for curfew violations, the first to use his “masterpiece.” (Encyclopedia of Illustrations #141).
