Yes, they get some strange ones. Elsewhere, I heard one final meal request was nothing but peace on Earth. There was one who said to give his meal to a homeless person. And there are some who ask for strange or exotic things, and in those cases, the chef may use discretion and create something that tastes somewhat like whatever. And sometimes the special requests are not honored because they know the inmate will try to pull something, like ordering a huge feast and then refusing it when he gets it.
