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.
