Nostalgic for your prison days? PRUNO!

Pruno, a prison wine created from fruit, sugar and ketchup, is such a vile and despicable beast in the California state penal system that prisoners can't eat fresh fruit at lunch.
Back in December 2002, the warden at Lancaster prison in Los Angeles County removed fresh fruit from box lunches in the maximum-security lockup, as an effort to reduce violence. Apparently, sober, scurvy-addled felons are much easier to control than drunken, violent convicts.

2. Never been in the slammer
Tried making my own root beer once, put too much yeast in.

Half the bottles exploded.

3. Pruno??
You'd think they'd just remove the ketchup.

5. Ketchup?
Ketchup in Shit-Loose?

Naw, what we did was stew the prunes and chop them up, put the whole mess in a bucket or a big plastic bag (not the one Weirdo used for "Aunt Polly") then get a piece of toast with some yeast stolen fron the bakery to float on top of the whole mess and let it go until the bubbling slowed down.

If you couldn't get prunes, you could make Rasin Jack....
