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 positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Doug h 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.

Now who am I gonna find 'cute' in a little chef's hat? Answer-me-that.

The obit for the Pillsbury Doughboy reminds me of the email joke about where croissants come from. Anybody see that?

That is so sad, I am so upset. I met Doughy (we were on a first name basis) about 20 years ago. I will never forget my mouth watering everytime I was near him, reminded me of my mom's freshly baked bread. People thought he was callus after years in the limelight but he was a real softie. His wife Play Doh and I use to sneak off (Doughy was never aware of this) and go to the Hostess Outlets. He will be missed!
