It is with the saddest heart that I pass on the following. Please join me in
remembering a great icon. The Pillsbury Dough boy died yesterday of a yeast infection
and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was only 51. Dough boy was
buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay there
Respects, including Mrs. Butter worth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins,
Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies and Captain Crunch.
The gravesite was piled high with flours, as long-time friend Aunt Jemima delivered
the eulogy, describing Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.
Dough boy 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 even still, as
a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions. Toward the end it was
thought that he would rise again, but alas, he was no tart.
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 twenty minutes
