  • Sad News...

    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 is still
    was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for

    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.

    Un amico degli amici.

    I'm shocked; What a shame. A good life, cut short... right in it's prime. He had risen to the pinnacle of his profession and was highly respected by many. But why do you think Duncan Hines didn't make an appearance to pay respects?
