3 Soda's for Executed Man's last meal

Ronnie Lee Gardner was executed in Utah last night via firing squad. Ever notice how most of the infamous murderers in history had 3 names? Lee Harvey Oswald. John Wayne Gacy. Spooky, right?

When Gardner consumed his last meal on Tuesday night, he washed it down with a 7UP.
(wow...I haven't had a 7Up in AGES. No disrespect to 7UP...I just find that the soda machines in fast food restaurants don't normally offer it in these parts...)

Gardner did not plan to eat on Thursday, but wound up consuming a Coke and a Mountain Dew before the day's end.

Not sure I would want an intake of caffeine before I Was to be executed. Doesn't your heart pound hard and fast enough just knowing you are about to be shot to death?! Maybe the extra racing and pounding takes the edge off?

I wonder how these beverages feel about unwittingly sponsoring a convicted killer's execution? "Today's firing squad was brought to you by Coca Cola! Choice of a New Generation...and a few from this Generation who are leaving us today...!"

Ok, that was crude.
