Deceased Doritos Creator Buried with His Chips


I don't know about you, but the first person to come to mind when I think "Doritos" is Ali Landry (Google/YouTube if you must). I am only a guy, after all. But after catching wind of this particular story, that all just might change — or at least might put the two on equal ground.

Doritos creator/inventor — or whatever the correct terminology is — Arch West passed away last Tuesday morning at the ripe age of 97. Don't worry, though — this story is not meant to sadden or depress. And while some have chosen or have been appointed by friends and family to be buried with notable keepsakes or close-to-heart artifacts, West's family (we assume) has nominated to toss the crafty creator's invention into his casket.

That's right — before his remains are forever lowered six-feet under, Doritos were thrown alongside him to keep the innovator happy, for all eternity.

The only question we're left with is — what happens when some malnourished wildlife is strolling through the cemetery late one night and catches a whiff of the unmistakable aroma? Yeah — I think you can see the problem.

Or will a Doritos tree subsequently sprout from the ground? I'd say option number two might be more formidable for all participants.

Nonetheless, may the great Arch West and his undeniably tasty treats rest in peace. We are forever indebted to your genius.
