It is with saddest heart that I pass on the
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the
entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast
infection, and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was
71. Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough
and Jane Dough, who has a bun in the oven. He is also survived by his
elderly father Pop Tart. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.
Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Buttersworth, 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, as a crusty old man, was
considered a roll model for millions. The funeral was held at for about 20 minutes.
