This could use a decent etymology...someone who is there just to serve their time in a particularly cushy capacity? Does this also have a negative side, i.e. in prison? --Connel MacKenzie 23:22, 12 January 2007 (UTC)

I don't think so, I think you got it right. I may be wrong but I don't think I have ever heard it used in the 'jailbird' sense - although obviously it would make sense...I'm just not sure that sense is used at all.zigzig20s 23:35, 12 January 2007 (UTC)
