An icon has passed.
It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the following news. Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and 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 really 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 was still a crusty old man and was considered a roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, and their two children, John Dough and Jane Dough. His wife, Play Dough, also had a bun in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart, and an estranged brother on the west coast, Sour Dough. The services were held at 3:50 PM for about twenty minutes.

He will be missed.

Wow, if he was 71, how much younger is his wife since she's got a 'bun in the oven' ? Poking
These celebrities, with their younger wives... Oh wait, my Dad remarried in 1979 to someone 25 yrs younger than him.... :rolleyes:
Never Mind....:D

Tis a shame about Doughboy. He must not have been a smart cookie as at 71 he was still called Doughboy instead the vaunted Doughman.:Laughing2::Laughing2::Laughing2:

Did he catch that yeast infection when he croissanted paths with a little wiener? Poking :Laughing2: :Laughing2: :Laughing2:

:Laughing2: Score! Nice one, Alex!

You know he only worked at Pillsbury because he kneaded the dough. He used to be a flour child.

He was a rye guy on a roll when he heard that Royce rolls. He tried to grab her little bun.
After the cops grilled him he was toast.
Don't forget to send flours.
He had more bread than Fred.:elephant:

Re: An icon has passed.
I wonder if the bun in the oven has been born yet. What was the name if so?

Are you sure it wasn't Half Baked?

I figured that he wanted to get out of the family business, so he became the Michelin Man, but he didn't have a taste for that either.
