Bare walls and belly button lint. Now THAT's Appropriate.
Okay, I know I've been rant-y and bitter lately. I know.
But we need to talk about the death row guy in Texas.
Have you heard about him? It's very controversial that he wants to tell a joke for his Last words. He's having a contest on his website, and he and his fellow inmates will choose the winner.
What was wrong with that last statement?
His WEBSITE? He's on Death row for shooting 2 people point blank in a Texas field, and he gets to have a WEBSITE? I have a little old blog, and I find it to be loads of fun. Why does this bastard get to host his own website?
This is the point where I fail all of the "Are You A Flaming Liberal?" quizzes, because I understand that he's going to die, and that's a whole lot of punishment. However.
Do the people he killed get to play on a website until he dies? No? Then why should he?
I believe in Capital punishment, and I believe that prison shouldn't be any fun. Most especially if we have already determined that not only are you beyond redemption, you are so FAR beyond that you must die for your crimes. I DO think we should not take twenty years to kill ya, but if you have to wait twenty years due to appeals and legalities, I am okay with it if you get bored in the interim.
If you want to tell a joke for your last words, fine. It's your last choice. Should you be covered by the media if you choose to do so? Nope. If it were me, I'd do a question and answer type joke, and die without revealing the answer.
