I'll stick with the tried and true--a pocket full of kryptonite.
2003-04-23 09:46:42 AM  
Sock with a coke can works best.
2003-04-23 09:47:11 AM  
A sock full of dominos. That's pretty creative.
2003-04-23 09:47:27 AM  
Going to 3:30am?
2003-04-23 09:47:46 AM  
the 8-ball is a good one too...
2003-04-23 09:47:55 AM  
Well, I guess that explains why I can't ever find the dominoes.
2003-04-23 09:48:11 AM  
GCD, yep, that's pretty standard from what my prison-friends tell me.
2003-04-23 09:48:15 AM  
Why is it that every story I read about "prison life" seems gay?
2003-04-23 09:48:23 AM  
Inmates are playing dominoes now?

Oooh! Tough inmates!!!

(My parents could kick their asses...)
2003-04-23 09:48:39 AM  
How is this new? The sock-with-soap or sock-with-orange has been around forever...
2003-04-23 09:49:01 AM  
newest...that's old.
In fact that was one of the 1st fights I helped break up in county jail.

A good one is boiling water kept warm with a stinger with peppermints. Like napalm

Bad Boys movie with Sean Penn. Fills a pillow case full of filled coke cans and open a can of whoop ass on his cell mates face. Good times, good times.
2003-04-23 09:49:26 AM  
A sock and soap is painful too.

[Kiss lyrics]
Now lemme tell ya my story, I got a man-sized predicament
And it's a big one, goes like this, yeah"

My my, ow, yeah!

Never had confession, never had a home
Never had no worry, until I met Domino

Ain't the virgin Mary, love her I confess
Got my hesitations, 'cause she kisses like the kiss of death

Loves lots of money, back's against the wall
Calls me "Sugar Daddy", she knows she's got me by the balls

They call her Domino - "so fine"

Got a reputation, haven't got a hope
It's a sticky situation, if she ain't old enough to vote

Loves to play with fire, loves to hurt so good
Loves to keep me burnin', 'cause she's a bad habit, bad habit
Bad habit that's good, good, good

They call her Domino, Domino, Domino

(Instrumental break)

"Every damn time I walk through that door, it's the same damn thing
That biatch bends over, and I forget my name - ow!"

Loves lots of money, back's against the wall
Calls me "Sugar Daddy", she knows she's got me by the balls - ow!
Loves to play with fire, love her I confess
Got no hesitations, cause she's a bad habit, bad habit, she's a bad habit!


[/Kiss lyrics]

I like the good old toothbrush shank.
2003-04-23 09:52:03 AM  
Yeah Nothingyet - that movie was cool/scary.
2003-04-23 09:52:12 AM  
3:30am is way too early to be eatting breakfast.
2003-04-23 09:52:21 AM  
"Can you swing a pillowcase full of doorknobs?"
2003-04-23 09:52:51 AM  
Prisoners are so creative imagine of these guys were actually smart they could creat new W.M.D for the Commies or whoever is left of the "axis of evil"
2003-04-23 09:53:50 AM  
jails are a waste of space and resources. My first order of business as world dictator:

STEP 1: Surgically weld all inmates' feet to stationary bicycle pedals.

STEP 2: Convert stationary bicycle motion into electricity.

STEP 3: Set quotas for inmates (ie they must pedal a certain amount of energy before they receive food, water, etc). Set rewards for high achievers and allow them to earn rest sessions, cigarettes, etc.

Think about it! Productive inmates that actually give back to society in the form of free electricity!

And don't give me that 'cruel and unusual' line. Man's inherent desire is to create, to build, to be constructive. I would just be fulfilling that desire.

CrazyEddie for Prez!

"Inmates involved in the brawl about 3:30 a.m. as they were going to breakfast.."

Bit early to be eating prison rations eh?
2003-04-23 09:55:18 AM  
Connally unit is the same prison that the Texas 7 escaped from.
2003-04-23 09:56:03 AM  
Prisoner 24601 had no comment
2003-04-23 09:56:07 AM  
Sounds like fun!
2003-04-23 09:56:21 AM  
I can think of someone who would vouch for the pain of the soap & sock.

In my day only the rich inmates had socks. The rest of us had to be beaten with dominos one at a time. It kinda hurt.
2003-04-23 09:57:05 AM  
CrazyEddie for Prez!

If I was American, you'd have my vote.

Can I be you campaign manager? There's something very catchy about the slogan "A vote for CrazyEddie is a vote for surgically welding people to bicycles!"
2003-04-23 09:57:41 AM  

Killer Gene Simmons reference. That album KICKS ASS!

"I wanna see what's inside, cause you got nothin to hide-
2003-04-23 10:01:52 AM  

that wouldn't work...when the prisoner was released he would have super powered legs...he would be able to leap over buildings like the Hulk or a giant grasshopper.
Johnny Law would never be able to catch him outdoors.
2003-04-23 10:02:02 AM  
I prefer the sack full of doorknobs myself.
2003-04-23 10:02:54 AM  
Weird... GIS for dominoes beating yielded this happy fellow.

[image from too old to be available]

But, has he been beaten, or is he about to beat? Or is he just drunk?
2003-04-23 10:02:55 AM  
2003-04-23 10:05:23 AM  
A sock full of dominoes. What a great name for a rock group.
2003-04-23 10:05:54 AM  
mmmm, a sack of Domino's pizza....
2003-04-23 10:07:37 AM  
Whoever said we would be releasing the inmates? Keep em peddling, man.
2003-04-23 10:08:15 AM  
Underwhelmed beat me to it.
2003-04-23 10:09:31 AM  
guys, go back to the article and look at the header with all the newspeople. WTF is with the guy on the right? Sunglasses???
2003-04-23 10:10:15 AM  
woohoo! you're catching on! see? this is a good idea, people.

Robw is my campaign manager. Please address all difficult questions and logical fallacies to him.

Sorry, Bendu, Flamehair is right. I thought I was being clear when I said "surgically WELDED..."
2003-04-23 10:11:57 AM  
*WAP* Homey don't play that!
2003-04-23 10:12:12 AM  
GCD - "Going to 3:30am?"

In prison they try to break your spirit by showing you that they (corrections officials) have complete control. They do not want comfortable inmates who wake up when they are no longer tired and eat when they are hungry. The prison schedule is a control mechanism.
2003-04-23 10:12:43 AM  
The SNL skit where Seinfeld goes to Oz was hilarious.

"You missed out on the make up sodomy!?"
2003-04-23 10:15:32 AM  
When I went on a tour of florida state prison they had an exhibit of shanks they had confiscated.

I opined that some of them were pretty ingenius and the warden pointed out that cavemen were doing the same thing 10,000 years ago.
2003-04-23 10:16:53 AM  
Someone's gonna get the beat-down!

2003-04-23 10:18:45 AM  
people were making shivs out of toothbrushes and wrapping sheets around chains 10,000 years ago?
2003-04-23 10:21:47 AM  
Yeah, but ten thousand years ago toothbrushes where made of flint. Tartar was lower but it played havoc with your gums.
2003-04-23 10:22:21 AM  
Uh...sock full of doms? That DAMN sure ain't new.
2003-04-23 10:23:32 AM  
Forsythe P. Jones: They look like the "Happy Wanderers"
2003-04-23 10:31:10 AM  
A sock full of car batteries would leave a mark.
2003-04-23 10:31:11 AM  
Get on back to school
Domino college, back to school
Boneyard full of knowledge
W-w-w-orking vacation in a third world nation
Back to school (going back to school, going back, back to school)

They don't rap your knuckles
If you cut the class
They just track you through the jungle boy
Then they kick your ass
