Jokes in Jail

jailA man went to prison. The inmates who had been there for years were sitting around talking. One of the guys said “37” and everyone laughed.
A moment later another guy said “15” and everyone laughed.
So the new guy is puzzled by this and asks, “What’s going on with the numbers here?”
One of the inmates explains that everyone kept telling the same old jokes over and over so eventually they gave the jokes each a number.
Next day they’re all sitting around and the new guy said “25”.
No one laughed.
There was a moment of uncomfortable silence until one of the other guys said, “You have to know how to tell it.”
