Sharing A Good Chuckle With Some Sad News...

Ok, in yet another email I received this link that is rather cute and funny. It is something that even kids can watch, so no worries that it is inappropriate (besides, I wouldn't post anything inappropriate on here anyway). Hope you enjoy!

On a more serious note:

>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 roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had a bun in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Just me AGAIN! I emailed you back. But sometimes my emails don't get through because for a few months we've been having ISP problems.

Shelley said...

Hmm..ok I just checked my email and only have the first one you sent so far. I did reply to it so not sure if you got that one or not...

OK, OK. That was the funniest thing I have read in ages.

I will miss the Doughboy so much.

He was an icon in my life.

Even when he wore purple and I thought he might be deviant, I still loved and admired him.

He can't be gone...he just can't!

Shelley said...

Doughboy wore purple?! How cool was that! I love purple so I think I would have enjoyed that!

Darlene...if you read this, I have sent you another email of confirmation...

Did the Pillsbury Doughboy die with a smile on his face? Did Tony the Tiger eulogize him by saying he was "Grrrrrreat!"?
