A condition caused when your hottest co-worker appears to be much more attractive than she actually is - but only in an office setting. Sitting at her cubicle under the aritificial lighting she appears to be a 9, but out at a bar she bears a closer resemblance to grimace. Because you are a pod you eventually shag her, leading to uncomfortable staff meetings and mutual regret.
"Went to happy hour with co-workers and defiled the front desk girl; it was a total prison syndrome shag."
"At the last marketing conference I got blasted and harpooned my assistant. Damn prison syndrome - now I have to fire her before my wife finds out that I speared a carp."
