Prisoners' last meals.
What a rather sad, yet interesting webpage. It shows what the prisoner's last meal was, and their, well, rap sheet.
Ronald O'Bryan was convicted of lacing his son's hallowe'en candy with cynanide - and his last meal was "T-bone steak (med. to well done), french fries and catsup, whole kernel corn, sweet peas, lettuce and tomato salad with egg and french dressing, iced tea, sweetener, saltines, Boston cream pie, and rolls"
They range from the odd ("One flour tortilla and water") to the rather sad ("1 bag of assorted Jolly Ranchers") to the insane ("12 pieces of chicken (thighs and drumsticks), 2 double-meat cheeseburgers on toasted buns, 1 large place of brown french fries with ketchup, 2 large onions (cut in slices), 2 large tomatoes (cut in slices), 6 sweet pickles, salad dressing, 5 sliced jalapeno peppers, peach cobbler with extra crust, and milk")
The rap sheets give rather odd information ('The body was found at the bottom of a wishing well, which was used as an ornamental garden')

Kryten: You would gamble your safety for a mere android? Is this the human value you call "friendship?"
Lister: Don't give me the Star Trek crap. It's too early in the morning.
