New Inmate: I don't get it. What are you guys laughing at?
Inmate #1: We've been locked up in here so long we've memorized all the jokes we know. So, to save time, we gave each joke a number and when someone says a number, we know what joke they're telling.
New Inmate: Oh! I'll give it a try. "63!!!"
(no one laughs. they just look at him.)
New Inmate: What? Why didn't anyone laugh?
Inmate #2: I guess some people just can't tell a joke.
