SI Swimsuit, and that time we were kicked OUT of federal prison

ONE OF the biggest joys of working for the Swimsuit Issue is the jail mail. And by biggest joys I mean the craziest ways of breaking up the everyday grind—even if the letters tend towards the disturbing from time to time (just ask MJ Day, the primary recipient).

This one was a little different though.

This box was not so much jail mail as it was mail that never made it into jail.

The offense: Being too sexy.

As for the official explanation, it went a little bit like this:

jailmail-600

Ruh roh.

Obviously the warden is just doing his job, and we respect that of course. But it does make our minds wander . . . what would a bunch of prisoners rioting over the content of the Swimsuit-Issue look like? Happy? At ease? Googly-eyed?

Moreover, what would a "witholding-of-the-Swimsuit-Issue-induced" riot be like? A worse breach of security? A bigger disruption of the orderly running of the institution? We venture to guess that it would.

We can only hope that such a punishment fits the crime—and that the warden at least kept a copy for himself.
