This week Oklahoma's governor granted a last-minute stay of execution for an inmate who was set to die on Wednesday.
The death row inmate had already eaten a massive 5,000 calorie last meal: a Pizza Hut medium double bacon double cheese pizza, two orders of Long John Silver's fish and chips and a Wendy's Baconator burger and strawberry malt.
Richard Glossip was in a holding cell waiting to be lead to the death chamber when the execution was dramatically halted amid concerns over the lethal injection drug.
The reprieve came at such short notice that Glossip, who has always maintained he did not kill his boss Barry Van Treese, has already eaten his last meal, reports the New York Daily News.
Famous last meals
Timothy McVeigh: The Oklahoma City bomber was put to death for killing 168 people during a 1995 bomb attack at the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
When he was executed by lethal injection in 2001, he requested two pints of mint chocolate chip ice cream as his last meal.
John Wayne Gacy: He killed 33 young men and boys and buried them under his home in Illinois. His massive last meal included 12 fried shrimp, a bucket of original recipe KFC fried chicken, french fries and a pound of strawberries.
Victor Feguer: In 1960, he took a bus from Wisconsin to Iowa, where he abducted and shot a doctor. He never offered an explanation for his actions.
He was prosecuted in the federal system and hanged in Iowa in 1963. Feguer's only meal request was a single olive with the pit still in it.
