71. Doughboys

This morning,I found this email from my sister Joan: “Sad news on the passing of the Pillsbury Doughboy.”  Joan said it had been forwarded to her by friend Phil Erickson – Annamae’s husband.  Octo-woman thinks you should read this and reflect on the passing of this great American hero.

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. Buttersworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, and the Hostess Twinkies… 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 considered a very smart cookie, but wasted 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.

If this made you smile, please rise to the occasion and take time to  pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift

    Wowee, Octo-woman! That is one sexy avatar you’ve got there! Will we be seeing and hearing more from her? Just wondering if I need to block Mark’s access to the site and force him to rely on synopsis.
