Celebrity Ashes

Most of you probably don't know the name of Dr. Frederic J. Baur, of Cincinnati, Ohio. But you know of his work.

He invented the Pringles Potato Chip Can.

By now, most of you are aware of the fact that he was so proud of his accomplishment, he had some of his cremated remains buried in a Pringle's Can.

Here's a few other fitting and, umm, ironic places for people to be buried.



Emeril: In a KFC bucket.

Dan Quayle: Idaho.

Shirley MacLaine: Anything recyclable.

Ray Croc: A Big Mac container.

Andrew Lloyd Webber: A litterbox.

Orson Welles: A wine bottle labeled, "It's Time."

Sam Walton: A small, abandoned, desolate small town.

Jared: A Pair of Hugely Over-sized Pants.

Bill Gates: On Hold. In India.
