Breakfast: The Most Important Meal of Your Last Day

Leon Vincent Taylor, executed by the state of Missouri today, obviously took those old words of wisdom about breakfast to heart. For his last meal, Taylor asked for eggs, bacon, doughnuts, and an orange drink.

Taylor earned his death sentence for taking part in a 1994 gas station robbery during which an employee was killed.

Banks Begs Pardon with Bursting Belly

Chadwick Banks might sound like the store where your rich grandmother buys her elegant pantsuits, but it's actually the name of a heinous killer executed by the state of Florida tonight for a viscous double murder. 

Banks, who was convicted of killing both his wife and his stepdaughter, apologized to the family of his victims prior to his lethal injection, saying "I am very sorry for the pain I have caused all these years."

An apology to his own digestive tract might have been in order, too, considering the gut-busting dinner he consumed earlier that day. For his last meal, Banks had fried fish, homemade French fries, hush puppies, old-fashioned dinner rolls, homemade banana pudding, red velvet cake, butter pecan ice cream, and a glass of ice water.
