Here's one Bible you don't want at your bedside

Convicted killer Danny Bible was executed by the state of Texas today for the rape and murder of a young woman who was stabbed 11 times with an ice pick. Bible also confessed to several other rapes and murders, including the killing of an infant, during his violent and turbulent life. In other words, this Bible was definitely Old Testament.

As Bible's execution date neared, we found ourselves wondering things like, "Will this guy read himself during his final hours?" and  "Is he allowed to put his hand on himself when he takes an oath in court?" But, being us, we mostly wondered what he would eat for his last meal. Would it be something with a religious connotation? Some unleavened bread, maybe? How about the Father, the Son, and some Holy Toast?

But since Bible was being executed in Texas, where prisoners aren't allowed to choose their last meal, he was given the same food as everyone else in his unit. For his last meal, Danny Bible had a chicken patty, sweet potatoes, cornbread, macaroni and cheese, pinto beans, biscuits, country gravy, a sugar cookie bar, and a choice of water, tea, or punch to drink.
