You will not believe the amount of food this death row inmate asked for his last meal that he refused to eat!

Has anyone ever asked you what you would eat for your last meal? More than a conversation starter, this is actually a decision death row inmates have to make before they are put to death.

Traditionally, prisons offer the inmate whatever they like for their last meal. This tradition was abolished in Texas though after one particularly extravagant request.

In 2011, death row inmate Lawrence Brewer requested and was provided with a meal that included a triple-meat bacon cheeseburger, bowl of okra, meat lover's pizza, half a loaf of bread, pound of barbecue, peanut butter fudge and a pint of ice cream.

However, when the food was brought to Brewer, he declined to eat it, saying that he wasn't hungry.

This prompted Texas Senator John Whitmire to write a letter prison officials demanding that they stop this tradition. Brad Livingston, the executive director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice agreed with Whitmire and halted the practice immediately.
