The passing of a great icon
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma
complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 98. Doughboy was
buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to
pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the
California Raisens, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and Captain
Crunch. 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
&nbs! p;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.
