FW: the Pillsbury Doughboy
Email forwards are ridiculous. I got this one today, from Aubrey.
Please join me in remembering a great icon. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a severe yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes to the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a slightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out, including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and many others. The graveside was piled high in 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. A doughnut once said to him, “If had all your dough, I sure wouldn’t be hanging around this hole!” Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model to millions. Doughboy is survived by his one brother, John Dough, and his elderly father, Pop Tart. Also, by his second wife, Play Dough. They had two children, and one in the oven. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.
thanks Aubrey, for that ridiculous post. I hope that brought a little comic relief to everybody's day.
