Not to be outdone by its neighbor, Georgia, the state of Alabama offed one of its own last night. The two southern states are now in a dead heat (Oh yes I did) for executions this year, with one apiece.
Michael Eggers, 50, was put to death by lethal injection at 7.29 p.m. local time yesterday for the 2000 strangulation of his (ex) employer, Bennie Francis Murray. According to reports from CBS News, Eggers admitted to strangling Murray during an argument after she hired him to work concessions for a traveling carnival.
And you think the whole “beware of the carnies” thing is all an urban myth. You FOOLS.
Now that your appetites have been whetted, the main course. (Oh yes I did)
Eggers' last meal (the same as his imprisoned brethren) consisted of: Chicken creole, dirty rice (personally kicked around the kitchen floor by the family of Bennie Murray), turnip greens, cornbread, cream corn, cake, and a grape drink. It is also reported that Eggers ate breakfast that morning consisting of "eggers" (last one, I promise), grits, prunes, two biscuits and gravy.
Wonder if that prune went to work before or after his execution? Both I reckon.
