Arch West, the creator of Doritos (yeah keep reading, you frigging potheads), died Sept. 20 of natural causes at the age of 97. His remains will be cremated and buried in Dallas along with Cool Ranch, Blazin' Buffalo and Ranch and, of course, Nacho Cheese Doritos.

"He would think it is hilarious," said his daughter Jana Hacker, a resident of the Dallas area. "The cemetery does not mind because they are biodegradable."
