The children of the Ohio man who designed the Pringles
potato chip can said they granted his request by burying
him in one of the tubes after he was cremated.

Fredric J. Baur, of College Hill, Ohio, was buried in the 
crisp's signature round can after he died May 4, at the 
age of 89, the Cincinnati Enquirer reported Saturday.

A separate urn also held part of Baur's ashes.  The
organic chemist and food storage technician also is
credited with developing a wide range of products including
freeze-dried ice cream and cooking oil.

Baur's daughter Linda said her father was most proud of
his design for the Pringles can, which he obtained a
patent for in 1970, the report said.

Baur spent much of his career at the Cincinnati-based
consumer goods manufacturing company Procter & Gamble.

Have you thought about how you want to be buried, if so
how and/or where?

        Man uses pepper spray to ward off squirrel
New York officials said they were called to a Rochester
neighborhood after a man tried getting a squirrel to leave
his home by using pepper spray.  Emergency officials
arrived at the home Sunday afternoon to rinse out the eyes
of five people who were present when the pepper spray was 
released, said Scott Williams, deputy fire chief of the
Rochester Fire Department.  Firefighters tuned on fans in 
the home to get rid of the lingering pepper spray, the
Rochester (N.Y.) Democrat & Chronicle reported.  "When
the fire department went in and opened up all of the
windows, the squirrel decided to leave. I guess he figured
his work there was done," Williams said.

          Man: Arrest threat for Transformers shirt
A London man said he was threatened with arrest at a city 
airport because his "Transformers" T-shirt depicted a
cartoon robot with a gun.  Brad Jayakody, 30, said he was 
passing through security at Heathrow Airport's Terminal 5 
for a business trip to Dusseldorf, Germany, when a guard 
began joking with him about his "Transformers" shirt, which
featured main villain Megatron, The Daily Mail reported 
Monday.  "Then he explains that since Megatron is holding
a gun, I'm not allowed to fly," he said.  Jayakody said 
the guard gave him the option of changing his shirt or
facing arrest for the "offensive" image.  "It's a 40-foot
tall cartoon robot with a gun as an arm," Jayakody said.
"There is no way this shirt is offensive in any way, and
what, I'm going to use the shirt to pretend I have a gun?
The passenger said he changed his shirt.  A spokesman for
BAA, which runs the airport, said the incident is being 
investigated.

         Whale bone arch replaced with fiberglass
A fiberglass whale jaw is being airlifted to a hill that
overlooks North Berwick, Scotland, to replace an actual
bone that had become unsafe, officials said.  East Lothian
Council officials said the famous landmark atop North
Berwick Law, an Antarctic whale jawbone that was removed
by helicopters three years ago after it became unsafe, is
set to return in fiberglass form with a replica made by
Jim Ralph of Ralph Plastics, The Scotsman reported Monday.
The original whale bone was placed atop the hill in 1709
and was first replaced in 1789. The Antarctic whale bone 
was placed atop the hill in 1935, after its predecessor
was blown down in 1933. A spokesman for the East Lothian
Council said the fiberglass bone is expected to be placed
during the next two to three weeks.
