Pringles can designer is buried in one

Fredric J. Baur died May 4 at Vitas Hospice in Cincinnati. Baur, 89, had designed the Pringles potato chip packaging system for Procter & Gamble in 1966. Baur’s children said they honored his request to bury him in one of the cans by placing part of his cremated remains in a Pringles container in his grave in suburban Springfield Township.

There is no truth to the rumor that Pringles are people. Nor are they soylent green.


Whoa, Bo Diddley

The great one, a.k.a Ellas Otha Bates, shuffled off this mortal coil today. Or maybe he boogied. Whatever he did he did it with more style and savoir faire than I’ll ever have. Only saw him perform once but it was great. Bo Diddley will always be a gun slinger for me.
