Fans of prison dramas like 'Oz,' 'Prison Break,' or 'Orange Is the New Black' are in for a treat - inmates have their own language that allows them to talk about their day-to-day life behind bars. From talking about what's going on to describing the things around them and the people they interact with, this jargon is like their secret code.

So if you've ever been curious about the ins and outs of terms like "porcelain termite" and "shank" in the slammer, dive into the gallery to get the lowdown. It's a whole different kind of vocabulary behind prison walls!
