“211 months in prison”? Is that an anagram for “wood chipper”? I’m trying to figure it out.

At least make sure everyone else in prison knows what he is in there for!

Crazy idea here, but stay with me on this. In a world of being who you are and out, proud, and honest, let’s list the prisoner’s reason for being incarcerated on their assigned clothing. Everyone is issued a vest to be worn at all times which states why they are there. For this particular individual, his says “production of child pornography”. Ya know, so this way everyone’s cards are on the table. I just want him to make some good friends.
