A book written, in six parts, by Steven King, about life on a prison bloc and the lives of some of the inmates, such as Delacroix and John Coffee. Was also made into a movie. The title comes from the hallway inmates walk down before they are to be executed by electric chair.
When John Coffee walked to the chair, no one had the balls to cry "Dead man walkin' on the green mile!"
the green mile is when you drive back to school after skipping class to smoke pot. the only parking spots that are left are at the end of the parking lot, so the walk back to school seems like a "mile" because its long and because of the fact your ripped out of your gord from all the bud you smoked, thus the "green". Then theres the analogy to deathrow as there are about 500 windows in the school and all that has to happen is a faculty member see you coming back from off campus high and your dead.
dude wheres brian? ah hes fucked man he got caught walking the green mile.
