This is my second "Jail" dinner picture thought I'd share:

Spaghettios with hamburger (old quick meal my dad used to make for me as a kid)
(Had to bring the spachettios from home lol)

Homestyle french fries with the skins left on

Bottle of Water

Jail Issue Spork



ETA: As most of you may know no guns allowed in the jail, no alcohol either.

That's better than some jail food.

That's worse than some jail food.

Jesus Cripes on a rocket powered weather balloon lawn chair.

Does the jail pay EXTRA for that envrio-weanie POTATO starch spork? It is, right? Its just like the "degradable" potato eating ware at the local hippie coffee shop.

Having been in jail, that's way too fancy for jail fare. Fail.

If it is they have a lot better reason to use it than the hippie coffee shop.

Unless hippies were rolling shanks from plastic sporks and sticking each other.

I said jail because except for the spaghettios I made everything from the jail kitchen. Our food here is good because our rules are VERY strict. So we compensate w/ that.


ETA: WTF is a potatoe starch spork?

Unless hippies were rolling shanks from plastic sporks and sticking each other.


Unless the potato ones are soaked in slightly acidic water for a few weeks (I did an experiment on my windowsill), they're still perfectly usable as a shank. In fact, they're probably easier to grind to a point.

And their 3 to 5 times as much as other eating ware.

Ah, ours are plastic, and they don't get to keep them in the cell with them.

Could've provided a stapler by concealing it in your spagettios.





ETA: Okay, I'm so dumb.

Our sporks here in TDCJ are Blue.

The ones I've seen used would just snap off in chunks if you tried to file/shave/sharpen them.

That would indeed be a feature, then.

Speaking of sporks, everytime I see one now, I think of the scene in one of the episodes of Alias where the "daddy" spy guy talks the computer tech geek through the use of a spork to remove the eyeball of a bad guy so they can use it in the optical recognition sensor.

Ah: Google, rocks:


[Marshall has accidentally shot a man; they need the man's eyes for a retinal scan. Marshall digs into one eye with a letter opener]

Marshall: Oh god. It's oozing. It's oozing everywhere, sir.

Jack Bristow: [via cell phone] That means you've ruptured the macula. The eye is useless, abandon it. Approach the second one gently, like a soft-boiled egg. You're going to need a digging instrument to assist with this.

Marshall: [looks in a drawer] I've got a spork.

Jack Bristow: [bewildered] What's a spork?

Marshall: It's like a half-spoon... half-fork, will that do?

Jack Bristow: That will work.
