That Drew Peterson is quite a card. In prison on charges of murdering his third wife, Peterson called a Chicago radio station this morning to crack jokes about prison life, reports TMZ. Among other things, Peterson told the Mancow & Cassidy show on WLS-AM that they should run a “Win a Conjugal Visit With Drew” contest, the AP notes.

After ticking off a list of legal bills, Peterson—who remains a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife—added, “Being accused of a homicide that didn’t happen. Priceless.” His lawyer told the show Peterson is working on a comedy act, and the inmate also joked about handcuffs as bling, prison food, and “buddies anxious to wash my back in the shower.” Click on the TMZ link to hear audio.
