Designer's ashes buried in Pringles can


Maybe I should start a feature called Weird Stories About Food Cans. This would be in it along with the cheeseburger in a can

Apparently the designer of the Pringles potato chip can and the whole system of getting those curved, stacked chips into the can  was so proud of his work he asked to have his ashes buried in one of the cans when he died. 

Fredric J. Baur, of Cincinnati, who died in May at age 89, was an organic chemist and food storage technician, whatever that is.

Consumer blogger Liz Kay sent me the link to the AP story, suggesting that maybe it was too weird for Dining@Large.

Surely you jest, Liz.
