Some sad news

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 flaky at
times he still was a crusty old man and was considered
a roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two
children, John Dough and Jane 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.
