Model Prisoner Jail

By quantum entanglement, you could entangle the convict, and place a small model of them in a very small jail.

The cost savings would be significant, only need one guard, and in the event of a riot you'd only need one can of tear gas. Visitors would needed to be frisked for tiny contraband items and so on.

Should the Prisons Commission want to inspect it, you can just send it around in a taxi, with a magnifying glass.

As for quantum tunnelling, the entire jail is enclosed in a Klein bottle.

       Why not just shrink them with a shrink ray instead of worrying about that quantum entanglement stuff?

       Well, at least it's not in other:general.

       It was merely cymbalic.   

       Anyway in the US it's referred to Camp Gitmo, with the first word and the first three letters of the last word as a tribute to the US prez who started this off..

       Nahh, that's a palanquin...   

       Guard: "You! Drop that shiv!"   

       Prisoner: says something completely inaudible as it's so quiet and high-pitched..   

       Guard fetches large magnifying glass to find the shiv...   

       I mean...this is so much more fun than a boring old full-size prison..
