On the 3 March 1999, WALTER BURNHART LaGRAND sat down to a dinner of six fried eggs, cooked over-easy, 16 strips of bacon, one large portion of hash-browns, one pint of pineapple sherbet ice cream, one "breakfast steak" well done. One 16 ounce cup filled with ice, one 7UP, 1 Dr. Pepper, 1 Coke, one portion of hot sauce, one cup of coffee, two packets of sugar and four Rolaids tablets. At 9:30pm he was then gassed to death. At least that's what it said on the death row web site and I have no reason not to believe them.
So that got me thinking. What would I have as a last dinner if I were in that position - and would I calorie count and watch the cholesterol? I think I would order a few tequila slammers but I noticed that none of Last Meal Requests included alcohol so I'm guessing that's not an option.
If tequila is out then I'm sure that champagne would be excluded and so that would defeat ordering Caspian Sea caviar. A search through the list of Last Meal Requests showed that nobody ordered a Big Mac or in fact anything from MacDonald's.
I think that I'd have to settle for my wife's chicken and prawn curry. That's definitely a meal to die for.
