Suppose you're about to walk the Green Mile, and were offered a last meal? What would you decide?
Cheeseburger with mayo, onion, and pickles, chopped salad of tomatoes, onions, and cucumbers in salt and lime juice, and Portillo's chocolate cake.
My mom's lasagna, a salad with vinaigrette, and homemade garlic bread.
I'm saying this only because I think it would make the whole ordeal a bit easier.
Steak, Eggs, and a Large Pepsi from Taco Bell. It sounds weird, but Taco Bell's Pepsi tastes the best.
A single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man's hat.
I've often thought about this and my last meal would be strictly vegetarian. Probably a very colorful salad of broccoli, red cabbage, red peppers etc.. Facing death I wouldn't want to contribute to the death of any other creatures by eating meat.
(I'm a happy meat eater normally.)
Did you know that Texas death row inmates don't get the "last meal" provision anymore? They can only order what the prison kitchen can reasonably provide.
Me, I'd go for a chocolate ice cream sundae, with hot fudge and whipped cream. Well, at least right now, anyway. It would depend on what I was craving at the time.
The biggest steamed lobster money could buy.
Great comments I'm getting. I'm not saying any of us are in a "last meal" situation, but this is an interesting thread.
^So, what's your choice for last meal?
Does anyone know the origin of the tradition? I've heard two different explanations, but I have no idea whether either is correct. Here they are: (1) it is a reference to the the Last Supper of Christ in the Bible. (2) In the days of the old west, hangings were a public spectacle, and the crowds favorite part was when release of various sphincters. The condemned were given a large last meal to improve the show. Personally, I hope the second one is correct, just because it's funnier.
As for me, I don't know, maybe a bowl of Captain Crunch or something. Or maybe a unicorn steak served with an unobtanium knife in the hopes that the execution would be put off while they tried to fulfill my request.
Not really that surprising. While other states are working to restrict executions, Texas is the only state to put in an express lane.
I heard a story once about a guy whose last meal was a peanut butter sandwich. He had a peanut allergy, and the peanuts killed him before the authorities could.
As for my last meal ... Lasagna. Lasagna, how I do love thee.
Make mine lasagna, too. But in truth, if I was facing the death penalty I'd just hang myself ASAP, because fuck waiting around to die.
I'd break you out Prison Break style. But better.
Well, if I did anything to be worthy of the death penalty, I'd probably kill myself before the cops even caught me. So you'd be a bit late on that count.
Fine! I'd phone in a tip for some money then.
That's right! Enrich yourself by my death!
Ambrosia. Ha! Let's see them execute an immortal.
My Mom's roast beef with yorkshire pudding, mashed potatoes, and gravy.
