Pillsbury Doughboy dies!!!!!1!
From an online forum...
Please join me in remembering a great icon. The Pillsbury Doughboy died
yesterday 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 final 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. As a long-time friend,
Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy.
She 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. But, despite being a little flakey
at times, he served as 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 ...
