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!
