Question of the Day

What would your last meal be?

Filet Mignon, medium rare, wrapped in bacon with extra bernaise sauce, twin lobsters (lazy man style please, cracking them is too much work and wastes precious calories) with a bucket of melted butter, garlic mashed potatoes with no vegetables or leafy food anywhere in sight. A cola with plenty of ice of the Coca Cola classic vintage please and warm gooey freshly baked tollhouse cookies with an ice cold glass of milk to wash it down.

Hey, it’s lunch time!


  1. I would need about three days to get through all my faves…

    Sushi platter and beer

    Spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread, tossed salad with fresh made Italian dressing with a sweet red wine

    What you said Chris – filet mignon and lobsters with red wine

    Real Louisiana Gumbo (no tomatoes or okra thank you), with boiled crawfish and butter with beer

    hamburger, fries and milkshake..

    I would have to die about 15 times to get through it all.

    No wonder the temperature is lower at my feet…

  2. Chirashi sushi (Scattered fish, egg and pickled veggies over a bed of rice), crispy honey garlic chicken from the chinese place at the mall, a slice of garlic pizza from Papa Joe’s, a side of my mother’s or sister’s pasta salad with extra balsamic vinegar, 2oz osetra caviar with warm blinies, mom’s salty tollhouse cookies, a Peanut Butter Milkshake, and a Grape Fanta.
    Maybe a mimosa or a mojito, if I have room. (Food>Alcohol)

  3. A huge steak, medium rare, with mashed potatoes and those cheesy Red Lobster biscuits. Glass bottled Coca-Cola. Oh, and a mojito. For dessert: a fluffy, made-from-scratch vanilla cake with buttercream frosting.

    Or, a full-course Thanksgiving meal. Jeez, is it lunchtime yet?

  4. Large Hamburger patty (no bun)with Catsup. One large Spud and 1/2 of a prime quality Acorn Squash, both baked in a Wood burning cookstove type oven. Butter on the Squash, Sour Cream on the Spud. Wild Blackberry pie with Whipped Cream for dessert. I’m good.

  5. To paraphrase Little Charlie and the Nightcats: Bring me two dinosaur eggs over easy, fried in the butter and not too greasy. I want a zebra tooth, a tiger steak. And a whole hippopotamus, well baked. Now bring me a cup of crocodile tears. Purple watermelon and some alligator ears. Now bring me an order of rattlesnake hips. The split of his tongue and bring me both of his lips. Now you have my order so serve my dish. Now go, get my dinner, go. You ain’t got it, go out an get it. ‘Cause I ain’t goin’, til you get back with it. Hey! Don’t forget the hot sauce!

  6. Most of mine will be catered in.

    1. Chris, you’re on point with the lobster…2 is nice
    2. Portillo’s italian sausage with hot peppers (chicago)
    3. White Fence Farms fried chicken and corn fritters (chicago)
    4. Spinach and artichoke dip with french bread and several pints of Front Street Brewery’s IPA (Davenport, Iowa)
    6. My mom’s homemade chocolate pudding and whipped cream

  7. @jAMES (4), LOL!

    @ Nate (13): please send your Mom’s homemade chocolate pudding recipe to curlycomedy(at) I just made some from scratch, and it was grey and separated into cornstarch lumps. my friends politely took 2 bites.

    My meal: Flamin’ Hot Cheetohs and a chalice of water from the Fountain of Youth.

  8. Lobster tails with melted butter and lemon accompanied by buttery chardonnay.
    Ripe avocado on sourdough bagette with salt and pepper and thinly sliced red onion with a jammy zinfandel.
    Coconut ice cream with fried bananas and caramel lime sauce with good strong coffee with half and half, no need to worry about it keeping me awake.

  9. Heroin. Seriously. If I was going to go out anyway, I might as well find out what all the fuss is about without having to sport all the addiction terribleness. It might be interesting.

  10. I would probably be on hunger strike. But I might order stinky tofu with congealed pig’s blood, just so I could throw it in the guard’s face.

  11. Revenge, served cold. Actually, if I knew I was dying that might ruin my appetite.

    Maybe I’ve spent too much time at the zoo, but I’d rather spend my last moments throwing poo at the nurses/guards. However it ends. Don’t mean to be crude, but you did ask…

  12. Vegan chicken cheesesteak from Govinda’s
    A piece of the cake from there…
    then I would go get a falafel
    and then some coconut milk chocolate “ice cream”

  13. Seared scallops, foie gras, langoustines with some kind of truffle sauce, rabbit, duck, something involving morels, venison, dauphinoise potatoes, a cheeseboard with epoisses oozing off the sides and lots and lots of wine, Grand Cru Burgundy if possible. They’d need to roll me to the chair.

  14. Though its not really a meal, im with Spiv. would love to try some heroin on my last day.
    now THAT would be a good question Chris. “who would try heroin on their last day?”

    Also its interesting to see how people interpreted the question. It seems quite a few people assume its a prisoner/death row thing, though the question doesn’t state it.

  15. Hot off the grill craw fish with lots of cayenne pepper,tossed garden salad with lots of marijuana and Italian dressing.Endless supply of Millers beer in iced glass.And an after dinner smoke of a Cheeks and Chong size fat boy.Hold the heroin,want to go playing my guitar and deep in thought about whatever.

  16. Grandma’s perogies, without a doubt. Along with those, some tasty roast beef, and fresh strawberries and raspberries for dessert. And fine chocolate!

  17. As an atheist, I guess I can’t pick fruit from the tree of eternal life…

    I’ve always liked peanut butter and jelly.

    Not much of a foodie.

    Local restaurant Bucci’s gnocchi in a blush marinara, I guess.

  18. I’ll start with a jianbing guozi (chinese crepe), and those delicious seafood-flavoured balls on sticks they sell in the streets of Beijing, served in a bowl with a spoonful of peanut sauce and chili. Hmmmm.
    After that, vegetable curry and lentils and papadums.
    Then I’ll have BBQed lobster with coconut bread from the caribbean coast of Nicaragua (the best lobster ever!), some scallops barely fried in butter, and sautéd wild mushrooms.

    For dessert: fresh mango and papaya and strawberries, a crème brûlée, and any pastry that has raspberries as its main ingredient.

    To drink: Long Jing green tea, and some good Belgian beer!

    Dammit, now I’ll be longing for that the whole day.

  19. Chicken Cordon Bleu, spinach salad, wild rice pilaf, a vintage bottle of Chardonnay… or two. A huge slice of vanilla bean cheesecake with raspberry puree and whipped cream. Shots of Makers Mark and plenty of cannabis until the end.

    @H # 27 I agree, are we supposedly dying or about to be killed?

    @ Inti #32 I wish my French was better, I’d love to read more of your blog, your work is amazing!

  20. Bottle of 100$ Champagne
    Plate of assorted crackers and cheeses(no blue cheese though)
    Mixed very colourful salad
    Mashed buttery potatoes, stuffing or hash browns with assorted lightly sauteed green beans with almonds on the side
    Cream of Asparagus soup
    And for dessert I want dark chocolate glazed cheesecake and cherry cheesecake
