Cremains of Pringles Can Inventor to Be Burried In, That’s Right, A Pringles Can

According to this story in the Huffington Post,

Fredric J. Baur, of Cincinnati, who died May 14 and who designed the Pringles potato crisp packaging system was so proud of his accomplishment that a portion of his ashes has been buried in one of the iconic cans.

Too bad he and Bill Bramanti didn’t get together while Mr. Baur was still alive. They could have had a good time. Pringles ‘n PBR!

Thanks also to Professor Beyer for his post.

The PBR Casket

This has been reported everywhere already… But its worth repeating:

Bill Bramanti of South Chicago has obtained a custom-made Pabst Blue Ribbon casket from Panozzo Bros. Funeral Home in Chicago Heights, and Scott Sign Co. of Chicago Heights. Yup – that thing full of beer is his casket.
