What is wrong with watery broth?

The Corrections Department has announced the Christmas menu for prisoners this year.

BREAKFAST: Cereal, milk, toast, spread, yoghurt, coffee.

LUNCH: Chicken, potatoes, carrots and peas; Two slices of buttered bread, One Christmas mince pie
Vegetarian – jacket potato with pumpkin filling

DINNER: Slices of beef and ham, potato salad, lettuce, tomato, hard boiled egg, two slices of buttered bread, milk, fruit
Vegetarian – avocado with mushroom and rice filling.

Oh and the budget for feeding prisoners is $4 a day.

Now, this is what prisoners would get if I was in charge of the prison system. 

Whaleoil Prison Breakfast: Cold thin porridge and water

Whaleoil Prison Lunch: Watery Vegetable soup and water

Whaleoil prison Dinner: Watery thin broth and water.

I reckon a budget of $0.50 per day would be far better for us, who gives a shit about them.
