    So this begs the question: who’s the lucky person who will find ashes when they open up their next can of Pringles?

    @KlausKinsky: I don’t know about you, but i also eat the crumbs at the bottom to.

    So now I will never get the chance to ask him why he didn’t make a little wider so I can actually reach my hand in and get the very product I paid for??? Half an inch…that’s all I needed.

  4. New flavor: Dessicated Inventor Ranch!

    Nitpick: it’s interred, not interned. Unless his ashes really are going to work there… Git Em SteveDave might be on to something.

    @Mr_D: you beat me to the nitpick.

    @Git Em SteveDave: Opening up a can of this stuff reminds me of that scene in “the Big Lebowski” when they opened up the coffee can. LOL.

    Did they at least run the ashes through a mold or something to get that wonderful saddle shape?

    How will other corporate execs be processed after death? Will the Starbuck’s founder be (over)roasted until they’re bitter?

    Once you pop, you can’t stop!

    @euleria: And Country Wide’s CEO will be buried on a plot financed by an ARM.

  11. Kounji says:

    Everyone has already taken all the good responses.

    Apparently, you can stop once you pop.

    I wonder what happened to the guy that invented condoms?

    I wonder if it included that ribbed paper insert they used to put in all the cans back in the day…
