The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection, and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, who has a bun in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Buttersworth, 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, as a crusty old man, was considered a roll model for millions.

The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes

Really sorry to hear this. I often thought of him as half-baked, but never overdone. And certainly not a Moldy Oldie. I figured with all those preservatives in him, he'd be poppin' fresh for a long time.

Sadly his expectant wife and children will have to start completely over. His last get rich quick scheme, "the bakers dozen" fell completely flat and apparently all he left for his family was a few crumbs.

A close family friend, who wishes to remain anonymous, reports that he suffered from a gambling addiction for years. He is rumored to have owed the famous crime family, the Keebler Elves, several thousand dollars at the time of his death. Is it just me or does anyone else think his death looks a little suspicious?

I heard the Gingerbread man muscled in on that territory now, and that the Toll house (or Crib) the elves lived in mysteriously burned down in a gas oven explosion, ruled a accident by lead investigator E.L. Fudge.

So, it finally happened. He is toast. I begged him to lay off the yeast, but he wouldn't listen. He should have made millions but his cookie cutter mentality got in the way.

I see from the report that Aunt Jemima's eulogy was on the syrupy side. How like her.

Poor Poppin' Fresh. Not minutes after he went to the great oven in the sky, and while millions of streusel cakes were still in mourning and lamenting the loss of their moistness and fluffiness, others began jostling for our lovable friend's position.

Expected to be passed over because they are next on the "Death List 2005" , are Graham Wafers and Betty Crocker....

I heard he and Aunt Jemima had a roll in the flour just before going in the oven,they were caught and came out half baked.He got a little crusty but soon began to crumble with embarrassment,he showed a tough exterior but inside he was soft as dough.


The more you taste the bitterness of defeat, the sweeter final victory will be

May the flowers of love forever bloom in your garden of life

DOH!

I was working as a private investigator on the case. I need to know if the funeral cost a lot of bread and if people took the rise out of Pilsbury on a regular basis? Was pregnant miss Jane doh "knocked up" or "knocked down"? Did the shoe pastry really fit or was she really a Tart?

I heard the funeral WAS a lot of bread. When his wife got the batch of bills, at first she was really heated up over it. Later she kept crying and when she got done with that, sat in the kitchen for days with a glazed look on her face. Her mascara was all caked too.

So if the funeral was a lot of bread, does that mean the next headline we'll see is "Bills Bury Doughboy's Honey"? I mean, it's not like Honey was rolling in dough...

While these are good puns for coffee, let's remember our grammatical rules.
Several years in the word game have learnt me some memorable rules:
1. Avoid alliteration. Always.
2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
3. Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.)
4. Employ the vernacular.
5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
8. Contractions aren't necessary.
9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
10. One should never generalize.
11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what YOU know."
12. Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
13. Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
14. Profanity sucks.
15. Be more or less specific.
16. Understatement is absolutely, universally always best.
17. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
18. One-word sentences? Eliminate.
19. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
20. The passive voice is to be avoided.
21. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
22. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
...and finally,
23. Who needs rhetorical questions?

...And like Prof. Dr. Zelda Myshkin, D. Sc., B.A., D.D., said, avoid citing famous experts nobody ever heard of.

Good tribute to the Doughboy--fluffy, and a little overdone.

Newsflash ..

Spotty Dick (a pudding if ever there was one) has just been battered after being mistaken for a very old flaky pastry. The assailant apparently was very saucy and quite fruity and used rather spicy language. The Sultana of Brownie has used his loaf and offered a considerable reward and has vowed to keep currant with the news and has informed us that he will see what rises.

Locking this fruitcake away for a long time in the cookie jar or the steamer would surely be the icing on the cake!

Now.. I heard through the grapevine that those California Raisins claimed him to be the ride of the life. I hear at the reception they were singing "I'm so glad we had this time together.. just to have a laugh and sing a song... seems we just get started and before you know it.. comes the time we have to say so long".

I was working as a private investigator on the case. I need to know if the funeral cost a lot of bread and if people took the rise out of Pilsbury on a regular basis? Was pregnant miss Jane doh "knocked up" or "knocked down"? Did the shoe pastry really fit or was she really a Tart?

Jane Dough did have a bun in the oven...After the funeral somebody caught her pie-eyed and scortching about how he filled her heart with jelly and her heart is flat as a pancake.

Consequently, all the heavy drinking led to the birth of a rum-cake that popped out well before it was done and now she has the burden of knowing it's her fault he's all mixed up. All the excitement really has made her a nervous rack.

Cheers,

Rodney

Rumour has it, upon hearing of Poppin Fresh's demise, Homer Simpson's only comment was, "Dough!"

Maybe Pillsbury has an off spring.
I always kind of pictured him as a nanny male.

I believe the comment "He is risen" was applied to another famous figure who *didn't* come in a box. The one you saw on the shelves was probably an impersonator--an interloafer, as it were.

"The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes"

GREAT CLOSER. Im not sure how many people actually got that.... It even took me a couple minutes.

This sounds like something you would read in THE ONION. If anyone likes this post, they should check out THE ONION.(a satire newspaper)

Interloafer... brilliant [Linked Image]

But no he wasn't. It was definitely our favourite doughboy and he was not, repeat, not, past his expiry date. I checked.

When I called my distant relatives, Snap, Crackle and Pop, they informed me that the sad news had been previously relayed to them by Sara Lee, Doughboy's other sugar cookie.
May this much kneaded icon rest in pieces.

Folks just can't resist this tribute thread, can they? It was the same when he was alive--everybody stuck it to him then, too. Good to feel kneaded, I guess. And they say you never failed to get a rise out of him.

Poor Sara. Bet she's just frosted. A little cold, but hey, nobody didn't like Sara Lee...

I think you guys are making way too much of this. I heard he was totally bent out of shape by the end, carrying around a few extra rolls in the mid-section. So stop buttering this guy up! You're making Julia Child "turnover" in her grave. His life wasn't as floury as you all think it was. At yeast that's what I heard, anyways.

Do we knead this all over again.I don't think we should sugarcoat his passing.I hear he was rolling in dough and greased every hand that came his way.

it was just last yeaster sunday that his followers rose up, got baked and loafed about the day recounting his influences as a founding force of the flour power movement... we sifted many memories. pam was very close to him, but he never stuck with her as it panned out. marge areen, buttered him up real good and knived through his dough leaving him a crusty, stale old crumb at the end... but he had a good roll and will be missed.

sop it up.

From what I understand he lost all purpose, after he failed at the Stove Top game. From there he just kinda sifted through the cracks and fell flat. Before long his soft outer crust became a hardened shell and was plagued with flake issue until the the ole egg timer dinged, signaling the end for the dough boy we all loved to poke.

Cheers

You can only squeeze a man so much. All the talk about gluten free dieting must have really blew him up.

His wife Cookie was his special treat. But he was remoured to have stepped out of the box with others. One affectionately known as "Dumpling", reached an out of court settlement reportedly worth millions, while Biscuit and Noodles were thrown out

But overall, he was a great man. Gave alot to charity including "Rice for the Nice" and "Hotbeds for Flatbreads"

Aint it a shame though, that we wait until people die before we say nice things about them?

Just Plain Quotes
"A lot of people will tell you that preparation is what will make you successful. But I think that people misunderstand exactly what that means sometimes. The type of preparation you need most is the kind that allows you to instantly seize an opportunity, change your course based on a momentary circumstance, and grab hold of the totally unexpected when it happens, and allow it to take you for the ride of your life! That is the kind of preparation that can lead to the most enjoyable type of success." -Brian Austin Whitney
