BARBOURSVILLE- A new addiction has reached epidemic proportions at West Regional Jail in Barboursville and has begun sweeping through other prison facilities in the state.
West Regional Jail Authority has admitted several dozen prisoners have become addicted to fire and pain... but it's not what you're thinking. The inmates can't get enough Atomic Fireballs.
Texas inmate Keith Judd electrified the political world during the West Virginia Democratic Presidential Primary, racking up 40 percent of the vote against incumbent Barack Obama and sending shockwaves of fervor throughout the Mountain State.
Morgantown: 400 female inmates have received MP3 players as part of a program to "bring the quality of entertainment behind bars into the 21st Century". For the teknologikally impaired, MP3 stands for "Music Player 3000": a fancy electric device that can hold 3000 songs.
Asked why they chose MP3 devices instead of the more popular Apple iPod (Internet Player of Device), inmate spokesperson Ima Inheerferlife said Steve Jobs wasn't known for innovative ideas.
Steve Jobs could not be reached for comment.
