Is this story fair of flour? Only the folks at Pillsbury know for sure. It certainly has not made their products any less yummy or well known.

The Pillsbury Doughboy
Has Passed Away




Please join us 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, 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 positive roll model for millions.

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 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.




This is yet another one of those email classics that I am passing along to you. If the folks at Pillsbury object to it, I will gladly take it down, just leave a comment. But, I think humor like this is in the spirit of fun and does plenty of good for your image rather than the reverse since no one in their right mind would take this with as having a grain of truth, and instead will get a bushel of kindhearted laughs that will remind them of a baker's dozen of your commercials, as it did me.
