• The Doughboy's Funeral

    From Daryl Stout@1:19/33 to All on Sunday, September 13, 2020 00:05:46
    From "Laughter Never Gets Old"...

    Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment
    community -- the Pillsbury Doughboy, who died of a yeast infection,
    and 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 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 considered a smart cookie, but wasted much of his dough on half-baked
    schemes. Though sometimes a little flaky, and a bit of a crusty old
    man, he was considered a positive roll model for millions.

    Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play-Doh; by four children, John
    Dough, Jane Dough, Do Si Sough, and one in the oven, and by his
    elderly father, Pop Tart.

    The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

    The family invites you to share this information with anyone who is
    having a crumby day, and kneads a lift.
