In 100 Years, He'll Still be Crisp

Inventor of Pringles chip can, Fredric Baur, to be buried in one: "The Cincinnati chemist who invented the iconic Pringles potato chip can was buried in one.

Relatives revealed yesterday they honored Fredric Baur's bizarre last wish and buried part of his cremated remains in a Pringles can.

Baur was so proud of the tube-shaped container he patented in 1970 that he wanted one to accompany him to his grave, his children told the Cincinnati Enquirer."

Hat tip to Art Scott.

But will the canister still pop if it's opened?
