Three men, an Italian, a Frenchman and an Englishman, were condemned to be executed. Their captors told them that they had the right to a final meal of their choice before the execution.
They asked the Frenchman what he wanted. ”
Give me some good French wine and French bread,” he requested. So they gave it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him.

“Give me a big plate of pasta,” said the Italian. So they brought it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him.
Now it was the English fellow’s turn. “I want a big bowl of strawberries,” said the Englishman.
“Strawberries! It’s September. Strawberries aren’t in season for months!” exclaimed his captors.
“I can wait!”
