    Well, at least he’ll be warm.

  2. Marum | 4:09 am |

    He may be doing “porridge” in Dartmoor.

  3. Marum | 4:12 am |

    CITE: do ˈporridge (British English, old-fashioned, informal) be in prison serving a sentence: He’s doing porridge again, this time for armed robbery.This comes from the fact that as porridge is a cheap food that makes the stomach feel full, it was often served in prisons.

  4. Marum | 4:14 am |

    Dinna ye ken. Yer nae use milk, jus a wee dram o whisky.

  5. Algernon | 4:23 am |

    And you want more.

  6. Algernon | 4:27 am |

    It’s a bit oatey

  7. Droll not Troll | 4:34 am |

    A person too poor to own a home may become cereal renter.

  8. Droll not Troll | 4:41 am |

    You were lucky to have porridge! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t’ shoebox in t’ middle o’ road.

  9. Droll not Troll | 5:11 am |

    Beats living with a bunch of fruit loops, I guess.

    For they among you who “kisim save long Tokpisin” this is bloody hilarious.

    Wanpela niupela Kiap i kam long Hailans. Nau dispela Kiap i subim olgeta botol strongpela dring (Scotch, Whiskey, Rum etc.) long liklik tebol long fireplace antap. (mantelpiece)

    Nau dispela Kiap i lukluk long botol Scotch. Em i mo pulap. Tripela de bihain i lukluk gen. Em i daunbilo lilik moa. Kiap i ting – haisboi i stilim Scotch bilong mi. Kiap i pispis lomg botol insait. Em i ting “Mi panisim hausboi long i stilim Scotch bilong mi.”

    Well, this goes on for a few days. Eventually the Kiap thinks, “I can’t keep doing this to the poor bugger. I will have to front him.”

    So Kiap i singaut stong; “HAUSBOI!”. Hausboi i kam. Kiap i tok. “Hausboi watpo yu stilim Scotch bilong mi?” Hauboi he
    draws himself up to full height (about 4′ 11″ being a highander) Na i tokaut kros. “Mi no stilim Scotch bilong yu masta. Mi kapsait liklik long porridge yu kaikai long moningtaim, olsem Kiap bipo i gat laiks.”

    Now I’ve heard of “karma”. I just didn’t realize it happened so instantly

    I’ve heard that food served in USA prisons is especially horrible, and I got that from accounts of people who have been in prison.

    Not the porridge . . .

  13. Pete | 2:01 pm |

    Rice gruel is so yesterday.

  14. Pete | 2:03 pm |

    “Let them eat porridge.”

  15. Marum | 4:12 pm |

    It is gruel, to make little children eat porridge.

  16. Marum | 4:19 pm |

    Did you hear about the bloke who murdered Snap, Crackle, and Pop, the monkey from Coco Pops, and all the other animated a$$holes who inhabit our breakfast-time soggies.

    It appears like he was a cereal killer.

  17. Marum | 4:35 pm |

    The only thing I can imagine, living IN porridge, would be a weevil.

    So the force of weevil is alive and well.

  18. Droll not Troll | 5:44 pm |

    Life can be gruel sometimes.

  19. Droll not Troll | 5:59 pm |

    @ Long Tom: Just another part of the crooked system.

    Prison management;
    1. Take food allowance money
    2. Buy cheapest food
    3. ???
    4. Profit!

    See my shocked face.

  20. Marum | 6:56 pm |

    @DnT 1759. Who said. “Crime does not pay”?

    I think any number of highly paid Judges, Barristers, and Lawyers , would attest to the fact….That it does handsomely.

  21. Marum | 7:14 pm |

    BTW. It may or may not surprise you, that the Govt. is privatising the Prisons in Aust. also.

  22. Droll not Troll | 8:39 pm |

    @Marum 1914: I read that the private prisons are held to very high standards here. I wonder…

  23. Marum | 9:20 pm |

    Not according to my “Copper” mates.

    BTW Do you know why they call ’em coppers.

    Copper = Cu + Not Trustworthy $hitez.

    Marum: So Dr Johnson was not being entirely forthright when he defined oats as “A grain that in England is fed to horses, but in Scotland to people”.

    Does living in a theme park planet count as poverty?
