No Tea In The Slammer

If you're a tea lover and you're planning on doing time at the Headingley Correctional Centre, in Winnipeg, a recent news report may be enough to scare you straight.

USA Today, among others, reported that inmates of this fine facility were using Darjeeling and Earl Grey tea bags and nicotine gum to make cigarettes. This is quite an involved process, but I guess these guys have plenty of time on their hands.

The jail has banned tea bags but is considering offering instant tea in its place. Now how's that for cruel and unusual punishment?
