If you were to be executed by midnight what would be your last meal?

Asked by charliecompany34 (7810points) August 17th, 2008

i know it sounds morbid and inhumane, but who can deny a really good meal? mine would be BBQ rib tips, cole slaw, thick fries with extra sauce and white bread. stuff i haven’t eaten in decades!

Are jello shots considered food?

A gun. I don’t want them to execute me. I’ll do it.

charliecompany34's avatar

@johnpowell: yes, under the circumstances.

Chicken Madeira and mashed potatoes from The Cheesecake Factory with lots and lots and lots of rolls with real butter, washed down with their strawberry lemonade and followed up by a cup of coffee and slice of chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake – extra whipped cream. Did I say slice? I meant the whole cheesecake.

A mish-mash of my favorite foods.

Guacamole and tortilla chips
Yams with marshmallows
Warm sourdough bread with real butter
My wife’s tiramisu
A dark chocolate truffle from See’s Candies

I might be sick, but who cares.

Somehow the thought of having a “favorite” meal to “enjoy” just before I was to be executed doesn’t appeal to me very much and I think I would waiver the idea of having a meal because it really wouldn’t matter much at all to me. I’d rather them get on with the execution and get it done so it wouldn’t be looming over me or my family anymore. But then again, I can’t ever imagine myself doing anything to warrant my being on Death Row in the first place.

Tacos, rice, lime flavored jello, and a sprite.

I’d have about 3 boxes of bran cereal. If they’re going to kill me, they’re going to clean that up.

Something low in fat and calories. That stuff will kill ya.

A simple cheeseburger with ketchup. I haven’t had one in two years!

A Mexican fiesta! chips with LOTS of guacamole, the best burrito with everything in it and Mexican rice and a margarita… Or two. Also Mexican caesar salad from my favorite restaraunt.

The traditional steak (medium-rare), eggs (over-easy), hash browns, toast, milk, coffee, juice, butter, and jelly.

A tall glass of antiserum.

@Ocean – Yes, but when you die you totally unleash the beast in your pants involuntarily! That’s why you should totally ask for a 12-egg omelette with six kinds of cheese, bacon and so on. Make them sorry they ever wanted to give you the respect of a last request before putting you to death for raping sixteen delicious children.

Fried chicken, turnip greens, white beans, fresh sliced tomatoes, and cornbread. And I will chase it down with iced sweet tea.

Shrimp Scampi
Cedar Plank Salmon (32oz)

Humble pie.

I don’t think I would have much of an appetite so just, about anything they give me would be okay, as long as it was edible. My taste buds, just wouldn’t be up to par as they normally would be, to savor the flavor.

This question just recently came up on the mondaysabitch weekly question community on LiveJournal. This is the answer I came up with:

It’s been a while since I shared this link. It’s the Texas Department of Criminal Justice’s list of final meal requests. I always wonder how many of them actually got what they requested. Because, apparently, they don’t always. Anyway, my request would look something like this: double bacon cheeseburger, chicken pot pie, a corndog, crab rangoon, a pint of snow peas and water chestnuts, sweet potato fries, fried zucchini, tiramisu, rice pudding, a plain Hershey bar, whole milk, rum and coke, cherry limeade. If I ever found myself in a position where choosing a last meal was something that I had to do, I doubt I’d actually eat any of it and I wouldn’t be able to eat all of it even if I was starving. But it’d be nice to have the option, and that’s what I’d ask for.

Tombstone pizza, with pepperoni and sausage (anyone remember this reference?!)

SuperMouse's avatar

@sndfreQ, is it a reference to the Tombstone commercial where the announcer asks “what do you want on your Tombstone?”

sndfreQ's avatar

I knew but wanted to see if any old-skoolers got it!

Thanks SM ;)

@Lovelocke – You are so right! Why didn’t I think of that before I answered??? Of course I’d want to eat the 12-egg omelette with six kinds of cheese, bacon and so on. But can we change my crime? I’m a nice girl, although, if I was eating my last meal, I must not have been too much of a nice girl now, would I?! Thanks for making me laugh tonight!

cyndyh's avatar

@oceanmist: Maybe you were wrongfully convicted.

oceansmist's avatar

@cyndyh – That’s exactly what happened! How did you know? Oh wait, everyone on Death Row usually says they’re innocent, but I really am! I promise I did not commit that crime but here I am doing the time! (See, I just get sillier as the night goes on…..and no alcohol has been involved either!)

cyndyh's avatar

Yeah, there’s so much injustice in the world. I’m co-founder of a group of wrongly acquitted people looking for justice. So, basically I want to thank you for serving my time for me. :^>

oceansmist's avatar

I am glad I could be of help. Enjoy your freedom on those nice white sandy beaches in…where is it you said you were staying now? ;)

cyndyh's avatar

heh heh heh wouldn’t you like to know?

Lovelocke's avatar

I’m about to make this thread uncomfortable.

@Ocean: “I’d say I was wrongfully convicted of the crime too: They put an age restriction on alcohol and tobacco, but now they put an age restriction on LIFE?! Pro choice, man… pro choice.”

oceansmist's avatar

@Lovelocke – Ah, my Pro of choice friend, wrongfully convicted is a “pro” on nothing except free bologna sandwiches. I’ll lobby from the inside of the cell for you and get the age restriction on life removed, but then what??? A restriction on life??? Hmmmm, I wonder….

And thanks for the suggestion on my last meal. It was a great one!

Lovelocke's avatar

…what the hell are you talking about? LOL… Does Anyone on this site read complete posts or just skip around looking for buzzwords and write tripe based on that?

oceansmist's avatar

Forgive me for apparently only skipping around looking for buzzwords and writing tripe based on that. I’m already on a hypothetical Death Row having my last meal. What more do you want? :)

Zaxwar91's avatar

If i were to be on death row, and could have my last meal, i would have a beef pot pie the size of a pizza pan, and enough mashed-patatoes to kill a horse. Smother that with a loaf of white bread and 10 pnds of broccoli and cheese and youve got yourself a meal fit for a dead man.
