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 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 (at 71!)
He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

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

He led a good life; quick rise, lots of bread, never stale.

I heard it might have been murder. His wife wanted his dough. Rumour has it also he wasn’t rising like she wanted anymore, either.

What crust he had! Never had a half baked idea, even when he was toasted.

Some believe that he will rise again.
