The last dinner

That's from Wired Furthermore:
"Fattened for the Kill
Texas executes prisoners about as often as some guys change their underwear, but you can't say the condemned don't check out without a square meal. Until a recent redesign of its website, the state's Department of Corrections routinely posted the last meals of those about to die, which ranged from the simple to the extravagant. John "Jackie" Elliott, for example, requested tea and cookies before his execution last February. Then there was Richard Head Williams: two chili cheese dogs, two cheeseburgers, two orders of onion rings with French dressing, a turkey salad with fries, egg rolls, chocolate cake, apple pie, butter pecan ice cream, one peach, three Dr. Pepper sodas, jalapenos, Ketchup and mayonnaise."

I find it disgusting. Can you feel the absolute indifference to those who died? What the hell this journalist thinks he is writing about? Is it just irony, or... can you be ironic about that?
