Designer of Pringles can buried in his own invention


Senior Member
Fredric Baur dreamed up the original Pringles can. Now he's buried in one.

In 1966, Baur came up with a clever way for Procter & Gamble to stack chips uniformly rather than tossing them in a bag. He was so proud of the achievement, he wanted to go to his grave with it. So when Baur died last month, his children buried the 89-year-old's ashes in one of his iconic cans.

As an aside, I wanted to wrap coffins at work with graphics, poppy fields, football crests etc. There's a couple of companies doing it already but my business partner thinks it's all too creepy, he wouldn't even let us get a black work van as most of them start out as private ambulances :D
