12 Pictures of Real Criminals’ Final Meals

12 Pictures of Real Criminals’ Last Meals

In honor of yet another soul-sucking cold front coming, something a tad bit more morbid (though not without humor!).  Stumbled on this Buzzfeed article (link above) showing what those sentenced to die chose as their final meal.  Some are fit for a king from steaks to overflowing baskets of fried chicken.  Then there are the more bizarre requests of a single olive, to being served while watching the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  Yet all followed some common theme…a sort of grotesque version of comfort food.  It got me thinking what I would choose as my last meal.  I’d probably ask for a large plate of saffron-scented yellow rice topped with roast lamb, an Arabic dish from my childhood.  Though a bowl of Neoguri instant ramen wouldn’t be so bad either.  What would your last meal be?
