Would you like a can of Pringles?

Personally, I have a highly passionate relationship with Pringles - they call to me, but I hate them because they are delicious yet so nasty and terrible for me! I could easily consume an entire can, given the opportunity.  And then hate myself. And then come back for more!  

They are the bounder and rake of snack foods! 

Anyway, I didn't know what to think of this news item at first, but now I think it is super cool that he did this!  RIP.

Aw! Rest in peace, Mr. Pringles :-(

I remember when Pringles came out and how the can was so innovative and cool. I do love Pringles. The original flavor is my fave, but I also like the BQ.

Carolyn Jean said...

Oooh, I bet the BBQ is good. Yum. Now I want some.

I love Pringles. I COULD eat the entire can. But I won't. Because that would be bad. But I COULD.

If my family puts my ashes in a chip tube I will haunt them forever.

Carolyn Jean said...

They will be woken up at night by the ominous sound of crunching!

lisabea said...

Oh this could be a great ghost story.

pringles must have a secret ingredient that makes them so addictive. it's not just clever marketing...really "once you pop, you just can't stop".

i hope the pringles man's can is clearly labelled tho. would suck if someone opened it thinking that the chips were just really crumbly. ewwww!

When I read that I thought that was awesome.
I want to be buried in my favorite PJ's and with my cabbage patch kid.

BTW did anyone ever take 2 pringles and make a mock duck bill and put it in your mouth and quack?

lisabea said...

Yes. I did...but I didn't say AFLACK. Because that would be tacky.

Katie(babs) said...

LB is my soul mate CJ. NAH NAH!!!
I love those afleck commercials.

Carolyn Jean said...

KB & LB; I don't even know those afleck commercials. Is Ben Afleck now a spokesman for Pringles?

I never did the duck thing, either. Maybe I need some Pringles!

Sula: Yeah, let's hope on that labelling.

lisabea said...

Cj. I am without words. AFLAC (is there a K on this? I can't remember) you know, Gilbert Godfrey as that duck and it always quacks: AFLAC!

Carolyn Jean said...

Oh! You know, I don't have TV. Only netflix. So I get sort of left out of stuff.

I think Ben Afleck would be a good spokesperson for Pringles, but not as good as RUSSELL!

lisabea said...

I want to do a poll: what's your favorite Russell Look??

oh mmmm....

Katie(babs) said...

OMG CJ YOU CRACK ME UP!!!
Ben Affleck as the Aflac spokesperson would be excellent!
Aflac is an insurance company that uses a duck in their commercials.

Russell Crowe in LA Confidential.

Carolyn Jean said...

What about Gladiator? Russell sweaty and hungry and a little bit beat up. That's a good look on him.

Or, in that movie with Sharon Stone. Russell sweaty and hungry and a little bit beat up and handcuffed to a post. That's a good look, too.

Katie(babs) said...

Oh yes!! The Quick and the Dead with Russ, Leo and Sharon. He was hotter than hot in that one :D
I think he was too buff in Gladiator.

He is all that and a can of Pringles.

Carolyn Jean said...

Yeah, you're right. A bit buff in Gladiator. I might need to watch LA confidential again. I watched 7 10 to Yuma recently. It was okay, but I don't feel Russell was properly showcased in that one.

Didn't everyone???

RC in LA Confidential - mmmm. I liked him in A Beautiful Mind too - odd but beautiful!

Wendy said...

I have a love/hate relationship with Pringles, as well and that is super cool!

lisabea said...

Master and Commander Russell makes me a bit weak kneed. But that may have to do with the title as well...

lisabea said...

Heh. Quote of the week, again, cj. You are really the champ.

Carolyn Jean said...

Tracy, I actually never did that!

LB: thanks for the quotage! What an honor. And you know, I NEVER saw Master and Commander. Any good? Aside from the obvious?

Hey Wendy - love hate on, sister.

lisabea said...

You're just so freakin hilarious CJ..you should work in advertising!


You and Teddypig are now, I think, tied..although this one may put you in the lead.

Jay Leno did a joke about the guy being buried in the Pringles can last night. He dumped his can and ashes came out. So not nice though. I think it's cool that he would want to be buried in the can!

JenB said...

A-F-L-A-C...no K (American Family Life Assurance Company). Sorry, I'm an insurance agent. And a nerd.

I love the Pringles story. I think I'd like to be mixed with Strawberry Kool-Aid powder and buried in a pickle jar. Or a Copenhagen tin. Something really tacky.

I love the Loaded Baked Potato Pringles.

Katie Reus said...

I eat Pringles (and doritos!) when I'm writing and pretend there's no calories in them. Too bad my ass doesn't agree :)

Seriously though, if my family buried me in a chip can, there would be payback ;)

naida said...
