A Music Lover's Last Request

Two men, each sentenced to die in the electric chair on the same day, were led to the room in which they would meet their maker. The priest gave the last rites, and then the Warden, turning to the first man, asked, "Son, do you have a last request?"

The man replied, "Yes sir, I do. I love bassoon music. Could you please play a bassoon concerto for me one last time?"

"Certainly," replied the warden. He turned to the other man and asked, "Well, what about you, son? What's your final request?"

"Please sir", he said, "kill me first."
