Recently Deceased - His Laugh Will Be Missed
Pillsbury Doughboy dies
Thought you would want to know.
It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the following news.
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the commercial industry.
The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin.
A Baker's Dozen of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including: Aunt Jemima, Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, The California Raisins, Betty Crocker, Little Debbie,The Hostess Twinkies, Ginger Snap, the M&Ms, Mr. Planter, Tony the tiger, The entire Chip family (all chocolate members and butterscotch) and Captain Crunch.
Even his main competitor Robin Hood Flour stopped by and left a Gold Medal on the cookie sheet..
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, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, his only son, John Dough, and daughter-in-law Jane Dough who had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50F for 20 minutes.
The gravesite was piled high with flours
Doughnuts were provided by Krispy Kreme immediately following the service.
