From "Laughter Never Gets Old"...
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
community -- the Pillsbury Doughboy, who died of a yeast infection,
and 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 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 considered a smart cookie, but wasted much of his dough on half-baked
schemes. Though sometimes a little flaky, and a bit of a crusty old
man, he was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play-Doh; by four children, John
Dough, Jane Dough, Do Si Sough, and one in the oven, and by his
elderly father, Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
The family invites you to share this information with anyone who is
having a crumby day, and kneads a lift.
