Jokes in prison

A man is in prison for the first time and hears an inmate yell out, "Thirty-two." Everybody in the cellblock starts laughing. Another inmate yells out, "Fifty-seven." Again, everybody is laughing. The new guy asks his cellmate, "Why is everybody laughing?"

The cellmate explains, "We've all been in here so long that we know all the jokes that everybody tells and we've numbered them.

The new guy thinks for a minute and then yells out, "Forty-three." Nobody laughs. He tries again: "Forty-three." Again, nobody laughs.

The new guy turns to his cellmate and says, "What happened? Why isn't anybody laughing?"

The cellmate says, "You told it wrong."
