Taste test: Procter & Gamble must have an abundance of blue food coloring, because they keep coming out with Pringles Prints with new trivia categories.
Or maybe people really like answering trivia questions while they snack. This version offers questions from the Guinness Book of World Records 2006. I'm not sure how popular the book is these days, but back in the '70s when I was a kid it was THE book (along with the Book of Lists) that you pored over looking for photos of the world's fattest man (or twins), or the guy with the longest fingernails. You also looked for world records that a 10-year-old might be able to break, like domino toppling or some other crazy stunt. In fact, Guinness mania reached a peak when "Happy Days" did an episode where The Fonz's cousin Angie broke the record for catching coins off of his elbow. For the next few weeks, I was stacking quarters, nickels and pennies on my elbow trying to repeat the stunt, as was everyone else at Okte Elementary School.
But back to the snack. These are basically regular Pringles with trivia questions printed on them in blue food coloring. Questions included "What is the largest vein in the body?" (answer: Inferior vena cava) and "The lightest 'normal' or non-atrophied brain on record weighed how much?" (answer: 1 lb. 8 oz.) I got a chuckle out of this question: "What are the dimensions of the largest waist ever?" (answer: 119 inches). I began thinking that if I started eating can after can of these crisps, I could actually break this record. Is that the definition of irony?
