Default Pillsbury Doughboy Dies!!

Something I don't do very often but this is cute;

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 roll model for
Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough
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
If this made you smile for even a brief second, please rise to the
occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone
else who kneads it.
24 cruises and counting!

It got for awhile that you recieved so many of these this via email, you didn't even read them. Most garbage. Finally people stopped using the computer as a joke machine. But this was so well written I had to pass it along to family. Very funny. (Oh no, I probably started them again. )

Thanks Jim for posting it. Even thou it goes against your better judgement!
