He’s assigned to a cell with another inmate who’s been in for a while. When it’s lights-out and everyone is in bed, the newbie hears another inmate say, “Number 37.”

There’s laughter from the other inmates

A moment later, another voice in the dark says, “Number 83!”

Once again, there’s laughter. This happens the next few nights. The newbie asked his cellmate what’s going on.

“We used to tell jokes from a book in the prison library. After a while, we knew them all so we just say the number. It saves time.”

The next day, the newbie went to the library to find the book. He found a joke he thought was hysterical and made his plan for that night.

After lights-out, a couple of joke numbers were called out to laughter. Then the newbie said, “Number 106!”

No one laughed.

The newbie asked his cellmate, “What gives? That joke is funny.”

The cellmate shrugged and said, “Well, some people know how to tell a joke and some don’t.”

Good luck to your friend.
