RIP.

Eleven days before they have the funeral is a long time. What’s the legal limit?

That sounds like Al Michaels giving us the play-by-play action of the burning Dorito!

the family plans on "tossing Doritos chips in before they put the dirt over the urn."

Why do people do things like this?

what came first, the guacamole or the chip?

Doritos are cool, but Fritos rule the snack food roost.

His brother made it to 97, and he hardly exercised.

Since they are planning on “tossing Doritos chips in before they put the dirt over the urn”, I would assume that means that he will be cremated. Or sealed in an urn. Either way, I don’t think it will be an open casket.

But heck, Vladimir Lenin’s body is still on display at his mausoleum in Moscow 87 years after his death.

From Wikipedia:

LaLanne was born in San Francisco, California,[3] to Jennie (née Garaig) (1884–1973) and Jean/John LaLanne (1881–1939). His parents were immigrants from Oloron-Sainte-Marie in southwest France. LaLanne had two older brothers, Ervil, who died in childhood (1906–1911), and Norman (1908–2005), who nicknamed him "Jack."

I guess he wanted to be "crispy" when they buried him.

They forgot to check the "bury by" date.
