Every criminal on death row is allowed to say a few last words before he or she is executed, and many of them see it as an opportunity to either apologize for what they’ve done or say goodbye to family and loved ones. Yet there are some who use their last words to leave a lasting impression, and there are some famous last words that have been so bizarre that it would be near impossible to forget.
Here is a list of bizarre last statements from death row inmates in the last moments of their execution.
John Wayne Gacy assaulted and murdered more than 30 teen boys and young men from 1972 and 1978, and he was sentenced to death in 1980. During his execution on May 9, 1994, he didn’t say much in that final moment (except for the words “kiss my ass”). And after 14 years of incarceration, he was probably a pain in one.
