Rest in spicy orange dust peace.

I heard that on TV that he died. What a popular product to of created.

...funeral will take place in Dallas, Texas.

- followed by his burial at a Cool Ranch

"Creator"? The way I read it, what he's really famous for is creating a commercial name for what everyone else already called "tortilla chips". What he should be famous for is for rounding the corners so they don't lacerate your gums and, simultaneously, rub salt and red pepper into them. Now, that's an accomplishment.

Ever had anyone breathe in your face after eating Doritos...? Good bye and good riddance.

I confess I've eaten Doritos in bed before. I don't think I'd want to spend eternity with them under me.

His body will decay away, but those chips will still be glowing thirty years from now.

I heard he died of nacho-ral causes...

What, no beer?

Coming soon to the SyFy channel: Attack of the Nacho Zombies!

Stoners of the world are mourning.

Goodbye, Mr. Chips.
