Sad news..

I received this in an email and just had to share here with all of you... this time of year I just can't help but recall many memories of him.....

Sad news

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainmentcommunity. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infectionand trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebritiesturned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, HungryJack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, andCaptain Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as aman who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly inshow business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was notconsidered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-bakedschemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crustyold 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 alsosurvived 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 4ime to pass it on and share that smile with someoneelse who may be having a crumby day and kneads a lift.
