Just wanted to share a good laugh....Gabrielle
It is with the saddest heart that I have to pass on the following: The
Pillsbury Doughboy died Monday of a severe yeast infection and complications
from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a
lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out, including Mrs.
Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, the Hostess
Twinkies, and Captain Crunch. The graveside was piled high with flours as
longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing 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 many 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, even as a crusty old man, he
was considered a roll model for millions. Toward the end it was thought he'd
rise once again, but he was no tart. Doughboy is survived by his second
wife, Play Dough. They have two children and one in the oven. The funeral
was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
