I've been reading the thread to see whether I might be interested in watching the show.

Isn't the title a little jarring if only the fish from county wear orange?
Definitely.

I think the title is the kind of thing people like Piper say to make light of trading their clothes, the ones they picked out themselves and paid for with real money from their real life for an orange jumpsuit. It's kind of symbolic because I bet Piper would look back after a week in there and think she was a total idiot saying that and not just because she's now in grey.
That makes sense if you're willing to think about it.
In real life (i.e., in the book), a friend of Piper's wrote it in a letter to her.

BTW, the book is excellent.
