Dry snitch- telling something out loud or saying something out loud for the CO to hear it. The snitch then says well I didn't tell the CO so I really didn't snitch.

I mentioned this in another thread.

"HO Case"  In women's prisons, that is someone who is serving the minimum 61 days.  "She's a ho case."  Many times women convicted of prostitution get 1 year terms & end up with 61 days.

My wife mentioned a new one yesterday.  "You gettin' funny?"  If you act differently than your community is used to.  This most often applies, at her place to women who are getting out soon and start to withdraw.  Of course, gettin funny can lead to the "sh*tty shorts."
Adversity arrives on its own schedule in a vehicle of its own design.

And my favorites: Snow bunny or "Becky". There are not so many white younger women going to the County to visit, and the guys yell this out to me...I guess "Becky" is like a generic white girl name? It makes me laugh every time!


 :wc35: :wc35: :wc35:

That reminded me of the introduction to a song called "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix Alot....


Quoted from: http://everything2.com/title/Baby%2520Got%2520Back

"Oh, my, god. Becky, look at her butt.
It is so big. She looks like,
one of those rap guys' girlfriends.
But, y'know, who understands those rap guys?
They only talk to her, because,
she looks like a total prostitute, 'kay?
I mean, her butt, is just so big.
I can't believe it's just so round, it's like,
out there, I mean - gross. Look!
She's just so ... black!

— Introduction to Baby got Back

The song opens with a monotonous yet insistent synth-bass line, and the above introduction, read in a deliberate white/valley girl voice, and is followed immediately by Mix-a-Lot's bold style and a number of bright orchestra hit samples. His Sirness delivers verse after verse on the merits of the stereotypical black female ass while at the same time decrying the form of the slender woman"


So I guess Becky could be a reference to a white female.

A lot of this isn't just prison slang, it's also just general chicago slang.
 LMAO @ some of these ;]

My guy told me this one in his last letter:  Hit a lit to my biggest fan.

Any guesses?

Are you sure it wasn't "hit a lick"?  That means he masturbated thinking of/looking at someone. lol

'hit a lick' - in the streets means to come up off something.

"man, I'm hurting.. I need to hit a lick" It's basically to rob, steal, take, find..etc.

"Where did you get all those gold rings?" "Oh, I hit a lick"

I've never heard it used in any other way.

"Put me in the car"...meaning, "Hook me up with one of your ladies friends/sisters/etc."

I heard that one the other day, and I couldnt help but laugh. :wc35: Definitely a new one for me.

Does anyone know what lick is?   It was in a letter my friend has. It was a guy in doc writing a guy that got out. He said "you still doing the lick, that's bad stuff". I have been searching everywhere to find out what it is. I never thought to ask here.

I dont know what "lick " mean in prison but I do know that out on the streets it means a come up. Like if you about to do some dirt or if you won the lottery you just hit a lick.

We thought maybe it had to do with drugs. But we can't find anyone that knows what it is.

Ok, thank you. I'm going to have to ask her what exactly it said, because to us, it sounded like drugs.

a "lick" is like a "stain" and stain is used in 2 ways loose girl and a come up. so if u hear someone say they hit a lick or stain they may be talking about they got something from someone illegally
