I've just read in the news that the 89-year-old creator of the Pringles' can, Dr. Fredric J. Baur, has died, been cremated, and, as per his request, part of his ashes have been buried in a Pringles' can in the Arlington Memorial Gardens in Cincinnati, Ohio. Reportedly he considered the can his greatest creation and was proud that it be part of his final resting arrangements. What didn't fit in the can were placed in an ordinary urn. Can and urn share the same plot.
