    SAD PASSING



    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 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, 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.



    If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the

    occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone

    else who may be having a crumby day and kneads it.

    Must be a typo concerning his age...I'm not yet 71 and I can remember when he first rose on the scene...or should I say screen?
