Chicken-Fried News: Jail best 

CFN_DRESSED4SUCCESS.jpg

You’ve heard the phrase “Sunday best” describing one’s “best” clothes to wear to church.

Well, now you’ve heard about “jail best” describing one’s nicest and cleanest clothes to wear to the county jail.

We at Chicken-Fried News learned of “jail best” thanks to Kenneth James Hodge. The 33-year-old man was accused of home burglary in southwest Oklahoma City in late January, according to NewsOK.com.

Before his arrest, Hodge engaged in a standoff with OKC police. He allegedly “locked himself in the house, took a shower, put on fresh clothes, drank several cans of soda and put his dirty clothes in the washing machine before surrendering peacefully to officers,” NewsOK reported.

Like church, there are many reasons to look your best.

During police booking, a photo will be taken, which becomes public record — anyone can pull the arrest record and pic.

Oh, don’t pretend you’ve never laughed after viewing a celebrity mug shot on PerezHilton.com, The Lost Ogle or Okjailbirds.

That might have been what Hodge was thinking.

“Oh no! I am going to be arrested. Grandma will see my photo in Okjailbirds when she gets her lottery ticket at the gas station. Gotta look my best.”

For all we know, Hodge was just really exhausted from the break-in and needed a little pick-me-up in the form of a caffeinated beverage.
