There's an old saying which basically follows the premise of something is only as fun as you make it. I guess it rings true.
It makes sense, because if you go to something that is, from the outside, enough to bore you into a coma, then you have to look for a way to make it more exciting. Take school assemblies, for example - that shit actually drew blood from a stone. In our school, though, we'd do things like someone on one end of the row of chairs would move up one, forcing the person next to them to move up one, too. That would go on like a game of dominoes, so the poor sod on the other end would fall off, into the middle of the hall, making a tit of himself.
But that probably doesn't translate to prison. The whole concept of being behind bars is to be anti-fun, but certain people like to treat it like a holiday home.
Inmates at HMP Guys Marsh in Dorset have been taking pictures of their lives under lock and key, making it look like some kind of extra-circular summer school activity.
The photos they took have made their way onto the internet, causing old-timers who have spent a lot of time in the nick to say: "Bloody hell, prison ain't what it used to be."
In the images, the crooks are seen cooking steaks, posing with cash, drugs and syringes, as well as putting forward some group snaps that wouldn't be out of place as a 15-year-old's cover on Facebook.
"They're having a great time, messing about and that," an unnamed man said on Facebook. "Prison can't be that much of a punishment - they look more like they're having a right laugh like students.
"I got added on Facebook by someone that I didn't know a few months ago and didn't think anything of it until they started posting all this stuff about drinking and taking drugs and I realised something wasn't right and that they were in prison.
"One post was for a friend's birthday and they were bragging about getting drunk."
Perhaps the most shocking thing is that someone has deemed it acceptable to fry eggs on a George Foreman grill - something that should land them an extra year on top of their sentence.
The blokes doing porridge also allegedly got a chicken kebab delivered through the window of a cell.
A Facebook status from one of the men is rumoured to have read: "Jokes today boiz :-) lol... F**ked now early nite ! Safe." If you scroll back to about 2008 on your own timeline, you'll probably find similar.
