It Ain't Over Til the Fat Boy Sings

Miguel "Fat Boy" Paredes was executed by the state of Texas tonight for his part in a triple murder that took place back in 2000. Paredes and two other members of his gang killed three people in an argument over drug money, then burned the bodies.

Some news outlets are claiming that Paredes ate a last meal of a Philly cheesteak, two sodas, and a Gatorade purchased for him by friends---but heed not the false prophets when it comes to last meal information! The Texas DOC confirmed that those items were vending machine snacks bought for Paredes before he was even transferred to the Huntsville unit where executions take place. In reality, the last meal of Miguel Paredes was chicken & rice, corn, sweet peas, pinto beans, cornbread, and coffee cake, with a choice of water, tea, or punch to drink. Because Texas no longer allows special last meal orders, this was the same food served to everyone in the unit.

Death Row Dinners Restaurant Gets the Axe

Apparently the public isn't as hungry for death row dining as some might expect. A restaurant offering the last meal experience was shut down before it even opened, according to the article here.

We suppose that means the only way to sample a true last meal is the old-school method, although we wouldn't advise anyone to commit a capital crime purely for the purpose of sampling prison fare. Instead, just whip up a few of the jailhouse recipes in our book! It's quicker, safer, and saves taxpayers millions of dollars in legal fees.
