A trend that I hope picks up

Bad Inmates Forced to Eat Repackaged Meals

"CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Inmates who misbehave at the Curry County jail may have to pay with their palates under a new punishment known as "prison loaf."

If inmates throw their food, a common problem at the Curry County Adult Detention Center, they could be served a prison loaf, which consists of an entire meal ground up, floured, baked and served in a bread-like form."

I have long felt that prison should not be fun, easy, and much like the lives of the monks of old: A lot of hard work, with no women, and very bland food. I think this is a great idea.

"But the mother of an inmate, Janie Pena, said prison loaf is not an appropriate form of punishment.

"It's OK for them to be punished," Pena said as she waited to visit her son at the jail. "But not with food. They are not dogs. Even dogs deserve better than that."

Feed them dog food then, it is very healthy from what I have heard. And BTW they are not dogs, but they sure as hell are not responsible citizens.

Of course are you going to take the word of a mother of a prisonor on how to displine people? Though so.

True - if mom had a solid idea of discipline - quite likely junior would not be an inmate.

I fixed the italics. The made it sound like the sarcastic comments were in the orginal article.

Good thing my mom didn't think of doing this when I complained about food growing up.
