Last Meal

Relevant? Not in the least.
Morbid? Terribly so.
Thinking about it? Yes, indeed.

Found these "statistics" on what inmates ask for as their last meal, you know--before--well -- you know.

Final Requests:
Prison officials try to meet last meal requests but are usually restricted by the contents of the prison fridge. Lawrence Buxton requested filet mignon before he was executed in 1991 for a robbery and murder in Houston. He was served a T-bone as the prison pantry did not stock the more expensive cut of meat but he apparently enjoyed it and sent his compliments to the chef.

Below are the most popular last meals requested during 2004 in the USA.

1) Fried Chicken and chips
2) Hamburgers/cheeseburgers and chips
3) Steak and chips
4) Pizza and chips

1) Ice cream
2) Apple / Pecan pie
3) Chocolate cake
4) Cherry cheese cake

1) Coke
2) Iced tea
3) Pepsi
4) Dr Pepper

1 person requested Baked Beans
1 person requested Dom Perignon

A Texas prisoner's final meal request included:
6 fried chicken breasts with ketchup, french fries, 6 layer lasagna (ground chicken, beef, cheese, minced tomatoes, noodles and sauteed onions), 6 egg rolls, shrimp fried rice and soy sauce, 6 chimichangas with melted cheese and salsa, 6 slices of turkey with liver and gizzard dressing, rice, cranberry sauce and six lemonades with extra sugar.

Would you want liver and gizzard dressing on turkey for your final meal? Thought not.
Tell them what you'd chose for your last meal.

And tell me in the comments section.
I'm still thinking. But I bet it involves lots of crab meat, lobster and scallops, wrapped in bacon-wrapped steak with french fries and onion rings. And a side of ranch. And blue cheese. And honey mustard. Yes, as a matter of fact I DO think this is a Ruby Tuesday's.

Would requesting the kosher meal stall for time? In Texas it might hasten the needle.

you may've already seen this, but it used to list all their last meals as well. i guess they found it distracting from the true spirit of execution facts.

Raw garlic and half cooked soybeans for me. If they are taking me out, I am taking them with me.

One biscuit with sausage gravy; one egg, scrambled, with cheddar cheese; one third of a can of corned beef hash, slightly burned; hash browns, also slightly burned; one half cup of fresh strawberries; one pint of Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia. That is all.

No, that is not all. I would also like a cup of coffee, six sugars, heavy cream, and a Double Grimbergen. That really is all. Seriously.

Well, then! That way, maybe you just go to sleep, and when you wake up....oh, wait.
