Final Meal, Part 2

Final Meal, Part 2

Have you ever just totally forgotten something? Like um… how I forgot today was my day to do the Ping? Sorry for the delay. 🙂

As a follow-up to my previous Ping on the subject, here is a story of another prisoner’s final meal. This one is unique, though: his mom will be cooking his final meal in the prison kitchen. She won’t be there for his execution, though.

I wonder if she’ll make him clean his plate… -ram

So his mom is not going to be there but 10 other relatives and friends will? If I'm going to be executed I definitely don't want anyone I care about there.

The funniest line is this story:
If the sentence was [sic] commuted, Bivins said his 114-year sentence would mean he would spend the rest of his life in prison. "I can't live like this," he said.

Obviously! Did this guy expect there was a chance of getting out of paying for his crime?

One of my friends here says that if he's ever diagnosed with a terminal illness and given a very specific amount of time left to live, he'd go and get totally screwed up on as many illegal (and legal too) substances as possible.
So I wonder if they'd give some wonderful, pink-elephant-on-crack drug, one that made you hallucinate, to a death-row person before he/she died.
Or if the person asked for a certain type of brownies... or something.

Legend has it that Aldous Huxley (the guy who wrote Brave New World) had his wife inject him with pure LSD on his deathbed. Wicked.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
