Thailand used to have a prison called “Khuk Khi Kai,” or “Chicken poop prison.” The first floor of the prison contained prisoners, and the second floor was a large chicken coop. The grated floor ensured that prisoners were constantly subjected to chicken poop.
In 2013, police busted a meat packing plant in China that was selling 20 tons of chicken meat slaughtered in 1967. It had been treated with hydrogen peroxide to make it look presentable in markets and stores.
Texas abolished last meal requests after a prisoner ordered two chicken-fried steaks, a triple cheeseburger, a beef & cheese omelet, a pound of barbecued meat, a half loaf of bread, three fajitas, a meat-lover’s pizza, fried okra, a pint of Blue Bell ice cream, and peanut-butter fudge — and then did not eat it.
