Mississippi Shrimpfest Continues With William Mitchell

Environmentalists were afraid the BP oil spill would decimate the Gulf Coast’s shrimp population, but it looks like another force of nature might wipe out those tasty little creatures; Mississippi’s death row inmates!

For the third time in the last six weeks, one of the state’s condemned convicts gobbled down a bunch of shrimp as part of his last meal. Prior to his execution today, William Mitchell dined on fried shrimp, fried oysters, two fried chicken breasts, a cup of ranch dressing, a strawberry milkshake, and a Coke.

The ranch dressing is a bit of a mystery. Did Mitchell dip his seafood in it? Pour it over his chicken as a sauce? Use it to cleanse his palate between courses? Those familiar with the subtle nuances of Mississippi cuisine are free to submit their guesses!
