Pillsbury Dough Boy Obituary

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.

Oh dear me, I have been keeping up with the tradition using Cristiano's belly, which is so reminscent of that famous cute little white dude...but I'd better cut down on the finger poking, I don't want him to die of the trauma complication!!

My uncle was on the ad agency team that created the Pillsbury Doughboy. He'd probably get a kick out of this. I'll have to send it to him.

Let us all bow our heads and say grace. And pass the butter, please.
