“If I ever go to prison, I’m gonna change my name to mitochondria—powerhouse of the cell”

Mitochondrion ("mitochondria" is the plural) is known as the powerhouse of the cell. There have been several jokes about “prison” cells.

“If I ever go to jail I’m gna change my name to mitochondria so I’m the powerhouse of my cell” was posted on Twitter on September 11, 2015. “I’m gonna change my name to mitochondria and go to jail so I can be the powerhouse of the cell” was posted on Twitter on October 4, 2015. “If I ever go to prison, I’m gonna change my name to mitochondria… I want everyone to know I’m the powerhouse of the cell” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on December 21, 2017.

“If I was in jail I would change my name to Mitochondrion so that inmates would know that I’m the powerhouse of the cell” was posted on Twitter by Hope Willis on February 20, 2017.


Wikipedia: Mitochrondrion
The mitochondrion (plural mitochondria) is a double membrane-bound organelle found in all eukaryotic organisms. Some cells in some multicellular organisms may however lack them (for example, mature mammalian red blood cells). A number of unicellular organisms, such as microsporidia, parabasalids, and diplomonads, have also reduced or transformed their mitochondria into other structures.[1]

If I was going to jail, I’d change my name to Mitochondria first, so everybody would know I was the powerhouse of the cell
