El Chapo’ Being Taken to Same Prison He Escaped from Six Months Ago

Some stories are just too bizarre to true. Yet, we are often reminded that life is stranger than fiction. http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2016/01/08/world/americas/ap-lt-mexico-drug-lord-the-latest.html El Chapo, the drug cartel, the lead in Narco, has been arrested and is held at the same prison he escaped from. Sounds like a great setup for a hilarious show with loads of shenanigans.
