A group of prisoners have been in prison so long they know each other's jokes by heart. To save time they refer to them by number. One prisoner says, "Number seventeen," and everyone smiles. Another says, "Remember number five?" and everyone chuckles. A third prisoner responds with , "How about that number eleven, eh?" and everyone grins. One prisoner, however, is rolling on the floor helpless with laughter at that one. Eventually he recovers and shrugs apologetically to his friends: "Sorry, that's the first time I heard that one."
