It's sad news . So ,so sad . Please join the crew of the Good Ship Sonshine 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.
Other notables included Snap , Crackle , and Pop, the Keebler Elves , Tony the Tiger, Fruity Pebbles , the Trix rabbit along with the street gang of Long John Silver, Ronald McDonald , Wendy, Jack and the gang leader Colonel Sanders .
The gravesite 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 , waisting 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 positive roll model for millions .
DoughBoy is survived by his wife PlayDough , three children , JohnDough , JaneDough and DossyDough ,plus they had one in the oven .
He is also survived by his elderly father , Pop Tart .
The funeral was at 3:50 for 20 minutes . If this made you smile for even the briefest of moments , please rise to the occasion and take time to pass it on and share that smile with someone else who may be having a crumby day and kneads a little lift.
