Your Death Row Meal

    Got the idea from the In-and-Out thread, where Buck-Dub said he'd have a combo for his death row meal. Believe it or not, the state of Texas has a list of every last meal requested (or served) by a death row inmate who was then offed. I was editor of a daily in Huntsville, home of Texas executions, and one night following an injection (not of me, duh!), I was reading the list of last meal requests, as well as some of their last statements. Pretty interesting stuff.

    My last meal? As odd as it sounds, I'd probably ask for Hamburger Helper, mac and cheese style, with some Doritos, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and a glass of milk.

    QUICK QUIZ: Does anyone know the one dish that's most requested and most served to death row inmates for their final meal, at least in Texas?

    here's an odd question, but can you get drunk with your last meal. I mean, can you order a bottle of wine to go with your food?

    In the state of Texas, you not only are forbidden from having alcohol, but you also cannot have cigarettes. In fact, the rule is usually pretty simple: What they have the ability to cook in the kitchen (with some other restrictions, of course).
  6. I've had this conversation with my wife before---my last meal would be:

    Steak and creamed spinach
    a couple dragon rolls
    a side of general tso's with pork fried rice

    i'd top it all off with a hot chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream on top

    that sounds like bullshit! they at least give you a cigarette in the movies. I don't even smoke, but I'd want one before I die just cause it seems appropriate. Fuck Texas! I'd want to be executed somewhere else.

    It gets even weirder. In most states that do executions, if you're having any health problems, they won't take your life until you get better. We had a death row inmate who had heart problems and they had to delay his execution for several months until he was better.

    Go figure. ::)

    It's called showing compassion.

    Wings, Pizza and ranch. Nothing fancy. It could make for a messy execution though.

    And I would guess that steak is the most requested last supper.

    What do I want on my Tombstone? Pepperoni and mushroom.
