  • well, I would eat as much as possible, except... maybe not b/c that is still gluttony even if it's your last day... 

    ice cream would definitely be on the list

    BBQ pork spare ribs...  :)

  • I've read that  prisoners facing execution rarely partake of the last meal that they've chosen. I imagine that knowing the exact moment of your death would be a great appetite suppressant. If I could choose the last particle to touch my tongue it would be the Blessed Sacrament.

  • well, receiving Jesus (viaticum) is definitely... goes w/o saying you would want that above all. I was talking about mundane food

  • If it's homemade, Southern cooking... they'll eat it.

    The last man to be legally hung in the US did.


    Rainey Bethea convicted of rape, robbery of an elderly widow
     (Owensboro, KY) 1936) He also murdered his victim.


    With all prepared, on August 13, 1936, Bethea had a last meal of fried chicken, cornbread, mashed potatoes, pork chops, pickled cucumbers, lemon pie, and ice cream in his cell in Louisville. Early the next morning, he was transported to the Owensboro jail.

    He got a shot at a last Confession too  :cowboy:

Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor but a destroyer."  St. Francis of Assisi

  • Certainly not Chinese food because I'd be hungry again before the 5 hours were gone.  :)

    That's right, cause you'll soon be swinging like a Peking Duck.

    The Golden Corral in your part of the world must be really great...    ...otherwise, your comment is offensive!  :ready-to-eat:

    In this sequence: 

    Last Confession... then the Holy Eucharist!

    That would be if you were in the state of mortal sin.
