PATERNO STATUE TO BE INCARCERATED

Make That One Orange Jumpsuit to Go Please

The controversy over the statue of the late Penn State coach Joe Paterno took an interesting turn today as it was announced by the  University that the statue will be placed in the Pennsylvania State Prison facility at Huntington PA.  According to sources close to the situation,  PA Governor Tom Corbett and officials of the university met for two hours yesterday and hammered out an agreement whereby Paterno’s Statue will spend three years in prison for Paterno’s failure to report the predatory activities of former assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.  “We feel it’s a pretty good compromise,” said John Blackmund, a spokesman for the governor’s office in Harrisburg.  “Since the Freeh report came out and we became aware of JoePa’s role in the Sandusky situation and since Joe was dead and obviously wouldn’t be doing any time, we decided that someone (or something) had to pay for his inaction,” he added.  “As a result we felt in the interest of fairness, Joe’s likeness was the closest thing we had available to do some hard time.”  According to the statue’s attorney, Jason Klepp, the statue will be eligible for parole after serving 30 months.
