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 considered a very smart cookie, but wasted 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 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.

I am now officially traumatized, I shall have to take the day off of work tomorrow, just to get over the shock. It’s a good thing I have a likeness of him to remember him by.

Just how much sawdust have you been sniffing today Jim?
