Dr. Fredric J. Baur, the designer of the famous Pringles potato chips cylindrical containers has been buried, at his request, inside his iconic design. Well, a portion of his ashes were.
Baur, who worked for P&G from the late 1940s to the early 1980s, was so proud of his design that he asked his family to bury him in one of his cans. The rest of his ashes were put in a regular urn and both were buried in his grave at Arlington Memorial Gardens in Springfield Township.
I wonder what flavor of Pringles the 89 years old Baur chose for his burial, and if he were to be buried without cremation, would he have had a big Pringles casket?
