When the chips are down

The Associated Press: The man 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.

Fredric J. Baur, of Cincinnati, died May 4 at Vitas Hospice in Cincinnati, his family said. He was 89.

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.

Bet his kids are relieved he didn't design skyscrapers...

Numbers is hard.

Retired in 2005 at age 58, no pension

Did a bit of googling, but could not determine if Thomas Crapper had made any requests for how his remains were handled.
