Jail saves money with mystery meat

Bilde_2 Chow at the Polk County Jail just got a lot crappier.

Sheriff Grady Judd announced Wednesday he would trim $160,000 a year from the jail's budget by eliminating peanut butter sandwiches, milk, fresh eggs, cornbread and coffee from the cafeteria.

They're replacing PB&Js with a mystery-meat coldcut sandwich (left), a move expected to save $11,076 a year. Blech.

NutriloafThe sheriff was pretty unapologetic about it, too, telling reporters, "If inmates want to eat PB&J sandwiches and drink coffee, tea and juice, they need to behave, quit violating the law and stay out of the county jail."

But, hey, at least they're not serving Nutraloaf (below left).
