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

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey 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.

Sorry to be misleading but we just thought this was so cute.  We were smiling the whole way through. 
Thanks Joyce for sharing!
