Arkansas shoppers are being advised to check the expiration date on any lethal injection they might be planning to administer to loved ones or fellow cult members. Other such perishables such as nooses or axes should be used immediately and avoid using any electric chair purchased before 1929.
A spokeswoman explained: 'There's a sell-by date for drugs and a cell-by date for Death Row inmates. Sadly, we cannot shelve the ending of life, when drug shelf-life comes to an end. If left to expire, these lethal injections could become more lethal...or possibly less lethal. We're not sure. But either way, they won't taste as nice.’
