People think of prisons as gloomy places and, in great part, they are. But some men can rise above it and find humor even in prison.

 

Two men came to my writing class. They were buddies and they seemed to care about each other. When one had no money, the other fronted him goodies from canteen.

 

One incident sticks in my mind, a bit ghoulish, but I found it funny. They told me they had posted a notice on the door of health care.

 

 

Get Fifty Bucks put into your account. We’re looking for some inmates to sign up for a new euthanasiamedical study. It’s just one needle, that’s all – and then fifty bucks. Imagine what that will buy at canteen. So sign up today for our Euthanasia study.

Ten inmates signed up
