We've all pondered the answer to that age old question about what we'd eat for our last meal, right? Very few (if any) of us have answered it "I'd let them decide for me." I mean, when contemplating my answer, I end up listing like 73,021 things-chicken parmigiana, French fries, a chocolate croissant, salted caramel brownies, baked ziti, you get it-but never has anyone ever been like, "Eh, whatever they give me!" Unlike us sane people, though, serial killer Ted Bundy did exactly that.
His instance, however, was only slightly different because it was truly his last meal before being put to death via electric chair in Florida for rape, necrophilia, over 30 counts of murder, and escaping prison. As CBS News reported, on January 24, 1989, "Bundy declined a special meal," as only a madman would do-literally.
Because he chose not to pick what he'd eat on his own, he was given a "standard last meal for Florida State Prison." That is, a medium-rare steak, eggs over easy, hash browns, toast with butter and jelly, milk, and juice.
As one might imagine, knowing you're about to be put to death in front of 41 witnesses in a matter of time doesn't exactly lend itself to a hardy appetite. So reading that Bundy didn't end up eating his meal in the New York Daily Newsdidn't exactly come as a huge surprise to me anyway.
