Maybe it's a little morbid, but have you ever thought about what you'd have for a last meal if you knew exactly when you'd kick the bucket?

I've been fascinated with last meals ever since I learned about death row inmates. One might assume someone about to die would want some 5-course meal from a Michelin star restaurant, but not necessarily. Here are some particularly weird ones:


Domestic terrorist Timothy McVeigh requested two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream for his last meal. That's quite the "sad lady breakup" meal, Tim.


Victor Feguer was convicted of murder in Iowa and requested a single, pitted olive for his last meal. He said that he hoped a "tree of peace" would grow from his grave after burial.


Serial killer John Wayne Gacy reportedly had a smorgasbord of fried foods for his last meal: deep-fried shrimp, a bucket of KFC and French fries. This is somewhat fitting, considering he was once a manager of three KFC restaurants. He capped off his greasy meal with a pound of strawberries for dessert.

(And yes, I know Gacy was executed via lethal injection, not the chair.)


Unless you're a death row inmate -- and chances are, you're not -- you probably won't be aware that your last meal will be, in fact, your last.

So I decided to ask on Facebook, if you knew exactly when you'd go, at what Utica - Rome restaurant would you choose to have your last meal?
