Sam and Lissa's Blog 11-5
Food glorious food. Sam and I got through the Monday morning by enjoying National Donut Day, the anniversary of Cheez Wiz and the birthday of the Pillsbury Dough Boy…One thing led to another…must have been the sugar and before you knew it we were reading the Dough Boy’s obit!!! Terry asked me to share it on Facebook so here it is…Enjoy!!!!
The Pillsbury Dough boy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71. Dough boy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butter worth, 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 Dough boy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded.
Dough boy 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 crusty old man and was considered a roll model for millions.
Dough boy 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.
