In decadent Aspen, Bundy’s escape was the source of great goofing : Local entrepreneurs hawked T-shirts declaring that “Ted Bundy is a One-Night Stand”; a bartender invented the Bundy Cocktail, made of rum, tequila, and two Mexican jumping beans. A local restaurant put Bundy Burgers on the menu : The bread was there but the meat was gone. Hitchhikers held signs that said I AM NOT BUNDY.

By the time Bundy was recaptured a week later he was a celebrity. And when, six months later, he escaped again by crawling through the light fixture in his jail cell, he became a regular John Dillinger. No jail could hold him.
