Pillsbury Doughboy died

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Please join me in remembering a great icon - the veteran Pillsbury spokesman. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

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 gravesite was piled high with flours. As long-time friend, Aunt Jemima, delivered the eulogy, describing 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 even still, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.

Toward the end it was thought he would rise again, but alas, he was no tart.

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.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about twenty minutes.

I'm reminded of a story a friend told me years ago back in the, um, drug days of the 70's.

My friend had just done some kind of acid (the blotter kind, I am sure, or so I hear), and some time later had become hungry. She found a box of Duncan Hines brownie mix and thought that looked good, so she mixed it up and sat down to wait for them to bake. The smell was incredible, she said, and she waited and watched them bake in amazement.

When they were done she let them cool, and cut one and sat down to eat it at the table. After one bite, she said out loud, "This is the best damn brownie I ever had!" She looked over at the oven, and there was the Pillsbury Doughboy, one hand leaning on the stove, and he simply said, "**** you!"

Reminds me of Mel Gibson's line to Goldie Hawn in Bird on a Wire.
"If you remember the 60s, you didn't experience them properly"

That's why I always say, "Or so I hear", cuz I don't recall a whole lot!
