“When prison inmates fall in love, do they finish each other’s sentences?”

A prison sentence is not the same as a sentence in the English language, but there are jokes. “Romantic inmates tend to finish each other’s sentences” was posted on Twitter on March 4, 2012. “It’s so sad that prison inmates who fall in love legally aren’t allowed to finish each other’s sentences” was posted on Twitter on February 24, 2013.

“When prison inmates fall in love do they finish each other’s sentences?” was posted on Twitter on August 20, 2015. “If inmates fall in love, do they finish each other’s sentences?” was posted on Reddit—Shower Thoughts on October 26, 2015.

“Did you hear about the English teacher who went to jail? She got a full sentence,” “I wanted to marry my jailed English teacher, but you can’t end a sentence with a proposition” and “Prison may be just one word. But to others, it’s a whole sentence” are similar jokes.

Prison inmates form bonds
unlike any other.
They’ve been known to finish
each other’s sentences.
