I was starting to get those late night cravings and I remembered a segment from The Ticket the other day when they were talking about the final meal requests of folks on death row.
Luckily, I live in a state that celebrates the death penalty, so this information is easily accessible online along with plenty more on the Texas Death Row website.
My favorite request? Stanley Allison Baker, Jr: Two 16 oz. ribeyes, one lb. turkey breast (sliced thin), twelve strips of bacon, two large hamburgers with mayo, onion, and lettuce, two large baked potatoes with butter, sour cream, cheese, and chives, four slices of cheese or one-half pound of grated cheddar cheese, chef salad with blue cheese dressing, two ears of corn on the cob, one pint of mint chocolate chip ice cream, and four vanilla Cokes or Mr. Pibb.
Heck, maybe I’m not so hungry after all.
