Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
community. The Pillsbury Doughboy?? died? yesterday of a yeast
infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He
was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities
turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth,? Hungry
Jack, > the California Raisins,? Betty Crocker,? the Hostess Twinkies,
and Captain Crunch.? The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima > delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as
a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in
show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not
considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Despite being a little flakey at times, he still was a crusty
old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough,? three children: John
Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is
also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart..

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the
occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone
else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.
