Pringles Jenga

At the grocery store last night, Liz and I came across a display for Pringles potato chips. On walking by, it was your regular display – kind of in the middle of the aisle. But on closer inspection, I realized that some of the lower levels seemed to have less cannisters than the upper levels.

And – not seeing much of a support structure in place, it seemed like this was a display destined to end up on the floor.

Maybe there’s a support column somewhere inside there, but the whole thing struck me as rather precarious. Not sure if this was accidental, or just someone was just wanting to make customers really *work* for their original flavor Pringles.

The more I think about it, the more I lean towards the latter explanation. I’d love to be there when this thing eventually topples.
