This weekend, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio celebrated the 20th birthday of his favorite
son jail, Tent City.
To celeberate, Arpaio ordered some stuff for inmates that's generally not allowed -- coffee, better food, rental movies, unrestricted television, magazines, '90s music, and cigarettes (candy cigarettes, HARDY HAR HAR!).
We had a hard time thinking of what's worth celebrating about the jail.
Statistically, most people don't die in Tent City or Arpaio's other jails, so that's kind of a plus.
Um, that's about it.
It's kind of frowned upon to claim you're running a concentration camp, and it's probably more frowned upon to celebrate its birthday.
Can you think of anything about Tent City that's worth celebrating?
