Well, at least he’ll be warm.
He may be doing “porridge” in Dartmoor.
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.
Dinna ye ken. Yer nae use milk, jus a wee dram o whisky.
And you want more.
It’s a bit oatey
A person too poor to own a home may become cereal renter.
You were lucky to have porridge! There were a hundred and fifty of us living in t’ shoebox in t’ middle o’ road.
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.

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.
The only thing I can imagine, living IN porridge, would be a weevil.
So the force of weevil is alive and well.
Life can be gruel sometimes.
@ Long Tom: Just another part of the crooked system.
1. Take food allowance money
2. Buy cheapest food
See my shocked face.
@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.
BTW. It may or may not surprise you, that the Govt. is privatising the Prisons in Aust. also.
@Marum 1914: I read that the private prisons are held to very high standards here. I wonder…
Not according to my “Copper” mates.
BTW Do you know why they call ’em coppers.
Copper = Cu + Not Trustworthy $hitez.
