If you could have a last meal...

Post by WacoRover » Tue Feb 06, 2018 9:56 pm

What would it be?

OK, here's mine: Start it off with some Shiner Bock. And, keep more handy;
Appetizer- sliced pineapple & cottage cheese; cucumber in red wine vinegar. Entree- Fried chicken (white meat only), creamed potatoes & gravy, fried okra, blackeyed peas; cornbread; a sweet, firm cantaloupe; coconut cream pie for dessert; & sweet tea.

Yes, I am from Dixie, how could you tell?! :D

Are we to pretend we've regressed to being one of those barbaric uncivilised nations that murders people for crimes they may or (presumably in this case) may not have commited? Just want to get into the spirit of things rather than list what I'd like for dinner... ;)

Well I was going to say, the meal could vary depending on whether you're a convicted cannibal or a vegan terrorist... :yeahright:

Of course, in practice a prisoner won't be given alcohol so you'll get non-alcoholic substitutes and die hungry... :yeahright:

You don't have to be a prisoner for a last meal, you could be sat at home with an asteroid the size of the moon about to come crashing down on you.
We're not a barbaric uncivilised nation that murders people for crimes they may or (presumably in this case) may not have committed. ;)

Well obviously everybody will eat one final time before they die, whether they know it's coming or not... but I think the concept of a "last meal" is specific to prisoners on death row:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-15040658

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_meal

Otherwise it's really just a question of what's the most mouth-watering meal you can think of at the moment? You're free to have it whenever you want, the significance of chooisng one final time is diminished if you haven't had that choice taken away. Maybe it's just me, but if said asteroid was hurtling towards us, I think what's for dinner wouldn't be my biggest concern... :yeahright: :lol:
