Touching Obituary


The world is mourning a great icon of the entertainment community. The
Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and traumatic
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 really knew
just how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose to the top quickly in
show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was no smart
cookie in business, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes.
Despite being a little flaky, he was a persistent and crusty old
man, and was considered a positive roll model for all

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John 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.

If this made you smile, RISE to the occasion and share this with someone
else who may be having a CRUMBY day and really KNEADS it.

I WISH I could take credit for this great piece... I received it in an email!

That SO clever! You should have kept quiet about where it came from!

LOL! I was already cracking up at John and Jane Dough by the time you hit me with Grandpa Pop Tart. I'm picturing Fred Thompson for some reason.

This is hysterically creative. For the Jolly Green Giant to no show the funeral just exhibits a lack of class.

Awesome piece of writing!

Ok, i already wrote a comment...stupid blogger...so here goes again but it may be a little different then the first, in case you get that one...LOL
I shouldn't laugh. Pillsbury dough boy has been a great demise for my chubby son. He always gets poked but instead of giving a giggle, he gives a mean right hook...can't blame him, he's been poked like that since he was 2 and 6 years is long enough. It does hurt him! So I'm glad pillsbury has risen to the great oven in the sky and I hope all his flour is sour!!
((doing the pillsbury pop boogie on his flaky grave))
LOL...this was great!
