  • Sad News in the Baking Industry...

    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 prodding 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 "M & M" Twins,
    Captain Crunch & Snap, Crackle & Pop.

    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, children -John Dough and Jane
    Dough, plus the one they had 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 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 may be
    having a crumby day and kneads it!

    As someone who 'grew up' with the Pillsbury Doughboy I have to say this put a smile on my face. (Only briefly, of course. I have now commenced the obligatory mourning period).

    Very good!
