Only in Texas

This is one of the weirdest stories I've come across in a long time, and believe me when I say I search out weird stories.

A Texas death row inmate plucked out his eye and ate it. Leaving him totally blind.

But of course, he only had one good eye because in 2004, before his trial, he plucked out the first one.

He was on trial for murdering his wife and two kids. He cut out their hearts and carried them home in his pockets. He was ruled competent for trial.

In Texas you have to be REALLY crazy before they think you're crazy. Can you imagine the conversation?

"He ate it."

"Ate what?"

"His own eyeball."

"The one he had just dug out of his face with a spork?"

"Yeah. He ate it."

"Well, hell, that's just weird."
