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.

Too funny!December 24, 2006 5:56 PM
how I possibly continue to fail to return here more often is one of those unexplained mysteries that have no reason or rhyme (well, maybe a little rhyme some of the time, but reason, in fact, simply lacks)... surely I could use the inspiration of a mind as brilliant as yours... surely I could benefit from the humor you bring to my funny bones... surely goodness and mercy will follow, wait, that's another irreverent aside...
I am very happy you are still writing and even more happy I can find you now and then... Merry Happy wonderful days every day of your life, with perhaps the occasional off day to enhance the appreciation of the mostly wonderful days, but ever increasing happy happy joy joy in the real world for you is my wish...
and now I shall return to the laughter you inspired :)December 25, 2006 2:06 AM
