Last meals are customary as part of a condemned prisoner’s day before facing execution. Usually, the prisoners are asked what they want for a last meal and the authorities try their best to be genies for a day. Some want their meals fancy, some simple, some healthy, and some eat like there’s no tomorrow – cause you know, there isn’t.

Unfortunately, many popular personalities – actors, rock stars, leaders, etc. – didn’t have the luxury of choosing a last meal due to unforeseen circumstances. In an informative chart designed by illustrator Sarah Lazarovic, we can see the ranks of last meals of famous people based on fanciness and caloric content.

Even for a last meal, Princess Diana ate like royalty, while Elvis ate like a rock star ‘til the end. And how about Frank Sinatra? Grilled cheese is definitely the way to go out with a bang!
